Welcome to the official website of the 2017 Computer Applications and Quantitive Methods in Archaeology (CAA) international conference. The conference will be held between March 14th and 16th, 2017 at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA, USA.
The 45th CAA conference will bring together scholars from across the globe to share their cutting edge research from a diverse range of fields in a focused, but informal, setting. One thing that the CAA prides itself on is a strong sense of community, and we hope to continue to grow that community by welcoming new participants this year. This is only the 3rd time the conference has been held in the United States, and we are excited to have old and new members join us in Atlanta this coming spring.
For any questions about the conference, please direct emails to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The call for sessions opens today, the 27th of June, and will remain open until the 26th of August. Please go to the OCS website to log-in and submit your session abstract. The link above should take you directly to the submission page. You can also click on the Submissions/Registration tab above. You will need to log-in, go to User Home, click on CAA 2017 and then look for the Submission link at the bottom of the page under the Conference Information header.
There are three different session formats that you can choose from – 1) “Other” – this is an open format that is at the discretion of the session organizer(s). The CAA International Scientific Committee is encouraging creative new session formats to create a dynamic environment for sharing projects and ideas. We ask that the session organizer(s) include a short description of what the session format would look like. This could include sessions that have short presentations accompanied by posters or digital posters followed by an open discussion or the session could be focused on actively solving a digital archaeology problem. It is important to stress, that individuals participating in these alternative formats will still have a chance to submit a paper for inclusion in the published proceedings. 2) “Roundtable/Panel” – this is a session format where the session organizer(s) present a position paper in advance of the conference and invite participants to discuss the topic in an open format. 3) “Standard Session” – this is your typical session that is composed of 15 or 25 minute papers presented by the participants.
Each session organizer(s) has 500 words including session title, author names, affiliations, and email addresses and 3 – 5 keywords. Organizers of “Other” sessions are given 600 words so that they can describe the session format. Please indicate the corresponding author if there is more than one organizer. Remember, the official language of the conference is English and all submissions should be in English. If English is not your first language, it is strongly suggested that you have a fluent English speaker review your abstract before submission.
