Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology Chapter Meeting

Thursday 9 December 2021 - Friday 10 December 2021
Hybrid event

CAA Netherlands/Flanders are planning to organise the 2021 chapter meeting at the Faculty of Archaeology at Leiden University, the Netherlands, on December 9-10 2021. We are aiming to organise an in-person meeting, but due to the ever evolving COVID-19 situation we will also make sure hybrid or fully online solutions are considered.

With ever increasing ubiquity of digital tools and practices, and applications related to data science in archaeology, the organising committee is expecting a prolific event that critically focuses on the theory and practice of digital and quantitative methods in archaeology. The topics that can be addressed by the participants include (but are not limited to):

  • Pandemic proof archaeology
  • Big data and machine learning
  • Semantic web and linked open data
  • Open science and reproducibility
  • Museums and digital archaeology
  • Archaeology and gaming
  • Teaching (digital) archaeology
  • Quantitative approaches to archaeology
  • Legacy data in digital archaeology
  • Mobile GIS and data recording strategies
  • Little minions (short (10 minutes) talks on little digital helpers)
  • Spatial and temporal fuzziness and uncertainty in archaeology
  • Remote sensing and landscape archaeology

See the CAA website for more information.
