CAA UK 2014 – Call for Papers

Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology, UK Chapter Meeting 2014

The next annual meeting of the UK Chapter of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA-UK) will be held in Oxford on 21st and 22nd March 2014.  CAA-UK aims to encourage communication between UK-based archaeologists, mathematicians and computer scientists in order to stimulate research and promote best practice in computational and mathematical approaches to the past.

Computational and statistical approaches have become an essential part of the tool-kit, so much so that they have become de rigueur.  Whilst it has often been acknowledged that such ‘tools’ are not theory-neutral, both approaches have struggled to throw off their positivist origins.  Papers and posters are encouraged which move beyond abstract models or representations and offer substantive contributions to interpretation of the past.

Suggested topics include:

  • GIS;
  • Spatial analysis;
  • Photogrammetry;
  • Geophysics;
  • Remote sensing;
  • 3D modelling;
  • Visualisation;
  • Network analysis;
  • Statistical methods;
  • Semantic web;
  • ‘Social’ media.

Abstracts (350 words maximum) should be submitted via the conference website ( by 31st January 2014.  Any queries regarding the call for papers should be emailed to
