A satellite conference at CAA 2014, Paris

Organisers: Claire Lemercier (CNRS, Sciences Po, Paris), Tom Brughmans (University of Southampton), The Connected Past steering committee.
The conference will be held immediately after the CAA conference (Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology), also happening in Paris, allowing participants to easily attend both – but participants from other disciplines, especially history, are also most welcome.
The conference aims to:
- Provide a forum for the presentation of network-based research applied to archaeological or historical questions
- Discuss the practicalities and implications of applying network perspectives and methodologies to archaeological and historical data in particular
- Strengthen the group of researchers interested in the potential of network approaches for archaeology and history
- Foster cross-disciplinary dialogue and collaborative work towards integrated analytical frameworks for understanding complex networks
- Stimulate debate about the application of network theory and analysis within archaeology and history in particular, but also more widely, and highlight the relevance of this work for the continued development of network theory in other disciplines
There are no attendance fees. Although this event is free of charge, registration is required and the number of places is limited. Registration to the event will open once the final programme is advertised in late November, and places will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
A “The Connected Past” practical workshop, “Introduction to network analysis for archaeologists” will also be organized during CAA2014 in Paris (see the CAA programme)
