An archaeological networks session at the European Archaeology Association conference has become an annual thing. That makes me happy! This year, a discussion session is organised focusing on archaeological networks and social interaction.
There is a perception of a divide between archaeological communities dedicated to different topics, and there definitely is quite a bit of miscommunication of research between theoretical and digital archaeology communities. This often leads to archaeologists taking an extreme and unconstructive stance towards the work done in other communities.
Romans and networks: it’s my thing! So it should not come as a surprise that I recommend presenting at the conference ‘Finding the limits of the Limes‘. It’s the final conference of a project at VU Amsterdam led by Philip Verhagen.
If you have not done so already, time to submit your session proposal for next year’s CAA conference in Atlanta.The deadline is the 26th of August, tomorrow. You can submit your session proposal here, and for more information about the workshop submission process see the CAA2017 website.
Simulation approaches are slowly becoming more mainstream in our discipline, rightly so! This trend will very much be supported by a new book series published by Springer: “Simulating the Past”. I would love to see some network/simulation books in the series.
It’s with great pleasure that we can announce the first ever conference session which is organized by the Res-Hist, The Connected Past and the Historical Network Research group: Historical and Archaeological Network Research Submission deadline 16 February 2016. Submissions via the conference website.
Classical studies, ancient history, classical archaeology: it can all do with more digital approaches! These are thriving disciplines that address challenging questions and through a wealth of diverse data types. But they are not always perceived as being on the forefront of theoretical and methodological innovations.
Do you have something to say about the way network methods are used in archaeology? Maybe you have some networky research lying around somewhere, begging to be presented.
The call for papers and posters for the Computer Application and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) conference held 29 March – 2 April 2016 in Oslo (Norway) is now open. Submission can be uploaded via CAA conference management system. Abstracts can contain up to 300 words. The submission deadline is 25 October 2015.
It’s been three years since the first edition of the international Historical Network Research conference, in Hamburg. The success of the first edition sparked an awesome second edition in Ghent, set in an amazing restored abbey complex. Now it’s time for episode III in Lisbon.
A yearly event I always gladly advertise: it’s the Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks satellite symposium at NetScie2015! The sixth edition of this truly multidisciplinary event will take place in Zaragoza (Spain). I presented at this symposium once and can definitely recommend it. Details below.
I just heard about a new initiative that might be of interest to readers of this blog. All info below.
I have attended the Sunbelt Social Network Analysis conference only once, in Hamburg two years ago. But it was a brilliant experience and so different from archaeological conferences (and not just because of the traditional two evenings of unlimited open bar).
I can only recommend people to attend or present at the Digital Classicist. It’s a friendly and inspiring forum for presenting the kind of work that I tend to blog about. All details about the call for papers can be found below.
Of course I am referring to the amazing city of Antwerp in Belgium! It’s my home town but I don’t think that skews my perception of its awesomeness. The University of Antwerp will host the second Digital Humanities Benelux conference.
We would like to bring the session ‘Network Science in Archaeology: challenges and opportunities’ to your attention. The session will be held at the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) conference in Glasgow on 2-5 September 2015.
We would like to bring a session on archaeological network science at the 2015 Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) meeting in Siena (Italy) to your attention. We welcome papers describing archaeological applications of network science, with a particular focus on the treatment of space and time in these applications.
The call for papers for the 2015 edition of the Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology conference is now open. There are some great sessions and workshops planned, check out the program here.
Time for the next edition of Digital Classicists Berlin. The previous editions have attracted some great talks, most of which are available on the seminar’s website with slides and everything. It’s a great resource.
The many Digital Humanities communities around the world are increasingly exploring network science. I would like to advertise an interesting event: “Nodes & Networks in the Humanities: Geometries, Relationships, Processes”.
