The Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) is an international organisation that brings together a range of scholars, specialists and experts in the fields of archaeology, history, cultural heritage, digital scholarship, GIS, mathematics, semantic web and informatics with an interest in interdisciplinary cooperation. Its aims are to encourage communication between these disciplines, to provide a survey of present work in the field, and to stimulate discussion.
With a presence spanning over forty years, the CAA annual conference has a long-standing reputation of showcasing new and innovative developments in the application of digital technologies to various aspects of cultural heritage and ancient world studies.
From its inception in the UK in 1973, the CAA conference has reached out beyond the United Kingdom to Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. It moves to extend knowledge and foster productive professional relationships by holding its annual conferences in different countries to enable the participation of local scholars.
