Already looking forward to attending CAA 2016! The next Annual Conference on Computer Applications and Quantitative methods in Archaeology will be held in Oslo, between 29th March-2nd of April, 2016. Sessions will address many aspects related to the current use of digital technologies in archaeology.
The e-proceedings of the first CAA GR conference have now been published! :-) Many thanks to the authors and the reviewers for their contribution. You can download the whole volume here: (For faster access right click on the link on the website and choose “Save link as” to save on your computer.) Papadopoulos, C., Paliou, E., Chrysanthi, A., Kotoula, E., and Sarris, A. (Eds) 2015. Archaeological Research in the Digital Age.
The second volume of the CAA 2012 proceedings was published a few days ago and is freely available from this link. The volume, that covers the full breadth of computer applications in archaeology, also includes a paper I co-authored with Cristina Corsi, while I was working at the “Radiography of the Past” project.
The next CAA International conference will take place in Siena, between March 30th and April 3rd 2015. As always, the CAA conference is expected to be an informative, stimulating, and entertaining not-to-be- missed event for all those interested in computer applications in archaeology. The program features many great sessions focusing on a variety of different technologies. Among others a session on formal approaches to visibility analysis will be organised by Giacomo Landeschi and me.
I am very happy to announce that the open access version of the volume “Spatial analysis and social spaces: Interdisciplinary approaches to the interpretation of prehistoric and historic built environments” has now been published! You can access the full contents from this link: http://www.degruyter.
Registration for the free online course on the “Archaeology of Portus: exploring the lost harbour of Ancient Rome” is now open! The online course is the new exciting project of the University of Southampton and promises to be a fascinating experience for those interested in Roman Archaeology and the application of digital technologies to the study of Roman sites. More details you can find at the project’s website.
There are still grants available to attend a CAA GR workshop on 3D recording technologies for fieldwork and artefacts. The grants are offered by CAA GR in collaboration with Archaeolandscapes network. A limited number of grants will be offered to eligible students and scholars that cover registration fees, accommodation (2 nights), travel expenses to Crete (Rethymno) and daily reimbursement (up to a maximum of 500 Euros per grant).
I am very happy to announce that the call for papers for the first CAA GR conference is now open! The CAA GR 2014 conference (Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology – Greek chapter) will be held at the Institute of Mediterranean Studies at Rethymno, Crete from Friday 7th to Saturday 8th March 2014. You can find instructions on abstract submission on the official website of the conference. Abstract submission deadline: 1st November 2013.
The use of computational social science methods in archaeology has steadily increased within the last ten years. An excellent overview of this area of research is presented in a volume edited by Andy Bevan and Mark Lake (Institute of Archaeology, UCL, UK), titled “Computational approaches to archaeological spaces“, which is expected to be published this month.
A new book that summarises the most important results of the Radio-past project has now been published. The volume presents many interesting ways of interpreting Roman towns using non-destructive survey methods, and is the outcome of the combined efforts of a multi-disciplinary and international team of archaeologists, geophysicists and geoarchaeologists.
An exciting forthcoming event was just announced: New Technologies for Interdisciplinary Human-Environmental Research, 7.-8. November 2013, @ Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities Visit the website for more info: https://digitalgeoarchaeology.wordpress.
Palaeoenvironmental reconstruction created by fusing terrestrial laser scanning, electrical resistivity tomography and seismic refraction tomography data. Very nice work from the colleagues at the Geography Department in Heidelberg! The journal article describing the creation of the model is available here.
The Radio-Past closing event will take place in Ghent, Belgium between 15-17 January, 2013. The preliminary program is out and inlcudes many interesting presentations on geoarchaeology, remote sensing and geophysical survey!
