All the papers have been chosen and the Programme is being drawn up as we speak. We have papers on all sorts of topics from the 3 R’s – Reusability, Repeatability and Robustness to new approaches to Mobility studies. Now is the time to Register for a chance to come and enjoy the CAAUK 2010, London-Style!
Numbers are limited so please Register before the 9th February to guarantee your place.
The Institute of Archaeology at University College London and the CAA UK Chapter committee would like to invite you to submit a paper or poster presentation for the CAA UK Chapter conference 2010. The conference is to be held at the Institute of Archaeology, London on the 19th – 20th February 2010.
We welcome submissions on any topic within the sphere of archaeological computing, but this year we particularly encourage papers that address the following topical themes:
- The 3 R’s – Reusability, Repeatability and Robustness – This can be in relation to many different areas such as quantitative modeling, ABM, spatial modeling, practical examples of data reuse, mash-ups, etc.
- Mobility – This can include submissions on any type of computer-based mobility studies including (but not limited to) settlement patterns, linguistic mobility, temporal mobility, visitor movement, animal movement etc.
Other themes of long-standing interest to researchers and practitioners include:
- Archaeological computing methods and techniques within the Cultural Resource Management (CRM) environment – Submissions on current computing practice and method are particularly welcome from commercial archaeology companies, museum professionals, heritage managers, local authority officers or other bodies working within CRM.
- Pattern recognition – Finding patterns within archaeological data, site patterning, image recognition, etc.
- Theory within Archaeological Computing – The application of archaeological theory within the computing environment e.g post-processual approaches to archaeological computing.
The papers should be 20 minutes in duration. Please send abstracts of up to 300 words to: firstname.lastname@example.org – the deadline is the 27th November 2009.
