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.
Roman studies are all over network science! In particular the team behind the ‘Finding the limits of the Limes’ project at the VU Amsterdam. They’ve been doing some really cool network analyses of Roman socio-economic and transport networks. Next month they will be hosting a major conference.

The first archaeogaming unconference was held in June 2015. It was a fairly successful event. So let’s have another one, shall we? It will happen via the MIT Unhangout platform in mid January 2017; watch this space for the exact day and time (which depend on my collaborators and the time zones they happen to be in). Please suggest or vote for session ideas here.
The CAA call for papers and posters is now open until 28 October! The full list of sessions is published here. Among them you will notice a most awesomely appealing title: “Archaeological Networks: Uncertainty, Missing Data, and Statistical Inference”.
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.
It’s not often that I get to see network analysis as one of the themes in an archaeological conference! So I’m delighted to see it feature so prominently at this year’s joint meeting of the CAA Netherlands/Flanders and Germany joint meeting. I presented at the conference last year and can definitely recommend it.
As computational archaeologist, CAA (Computer Applications and Quantitative methods in archaeology) plays an important part in the work that Archaeovision completes. CAA is an international led conference package that meets once a year in different countries in order to increase participation from archaeologist, computer scientists and mathematicians all over the world. This year’s conference will meet in Oslo, Norway and the following year the conference will be held in Atlanta, USA.
Trade is a massive research topic in archaeology and one of my favourites. But I am very convinced that the study of trade in archaeology in particular could benefit greatly from the use of new computational methods.
Subject: call for candidates for six open Scientific Committee posts and four open CAA committee posts Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) invites applications for one of six open Scientific Committee posts.

Who says gaming can’t be serious and fun at the same time? Serious gaming in academia and education has been around for a while. But the potential of gaming for their role in archaeology education or how we paint popular pictures of the past is still under explored. VALUE promises to change that.

I love the CAA and I thoroughly enjoy being able to give something back to this community by being CAA secretary.
It’s necessary to frequently remind ourselves that Academia does not just happen in English.
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.

Archaeogeomancy: Digital Heritage Specialists - archaeological geomatics - the majick of spatial data in archaeology - archaeological information systems for the digital age: Conference Following on from my presentation at CAA2014 in Paris, I was invited to submit a paper to a session at CAA2015 covering Linked Data (LD) and focussing on the difference between being theoretically interoperable and interoperating in practice.
