Call for Papers

Submissions are requested for the 2012 Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology to be hosted by the Archaeological Computing Research Group in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Southampton.

The main aim of the CAA conference is to bring together researchers, professionals and students with an interest in the field of computer applications and quantitative methods in archaeology. We therefore welcome submission of abstracts in English of up to 500 words that:

-          Describe original, technically excellent, critical, and/or synthetic research

-          Focus on interesting computation and/ or quantitative methods and theories applied in archaeology and related disciplines

You may choose to present your research via a long paper (20 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions and handover), short paper (10 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions and handover), or a poster. You may submit your research to a specific proposed session or to the general session. Poster sessions will run on each day of the conference and posters will be linked in the conference documents and website to the sessions to which they were submitted. Please indicate your preference in your submission.

Provisionally the conference will be divided into six themes:

  1. Data Analysis, Modelling, Management, Integration and Visualisation
  2. Field and Lab Recording
  3. Geospatial technologies
  4. Human Computer Interaction, Multimedia and Museums
  5. Simulating the Past
  6. Theoretical Approaches and Context of Archaeological Computation
