The CAA-UK 2020 conference and AGM will be held on 2nd November and hosted by Royal Holloway University of London.
The theme of the event is “Equality, Diversity and Accessibility”. We are inviting proposals for presentations that engage or align with this theme in relation to computational approaches to archaeology, and how we examine and present the past.
Call for Papers
We are accepting proposals of 20-minutes presentations or 45-minute roundtables consisting of three x 10min presentations and a 15min discussion. Deadline for proposals is Friday 14th August 2020. Please send your proposals to the organisers at: Catriona.Cooper@RHUL.ac.uk including:
• Title of the Paper/ Roundtable
• Name, affiliation and email of the proposer (s)
• Abstract (maximum of 350 words)
We particularly welcome proposals from underrepresented groups in the field and minoritized groups such as, Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and disabled researchers. We encourage attendees of all ages, levels of experience/qualification, and across all disciplines.
If you have any concerns or questions in advance, during or after the event please contact Catriona Cooper (Catriona.Cooper@rhul.ac.uk) or Lawrence Shaw (Lawrence.Shaw@newforestnpa.gov.uk) via email.
CAA-UK is a membership organisation and a fee (£5) is usually paid annually to attend the conference and to be part of the organisation. Given the current crisis we are offering free membership to CAA-UK for the year 2020-2021. The membership goes to support accessibility bursaries at the following year’s conference and future CPD events which we are planning. We would encourage all participants to consider supporting the group through payment wherever possible. This can be done through BACS or cheque payment, details to follow when registration opens.
Two committee posts (Secretary and Finance Officer) are both up for renewal during the AGM, as well as opportunities to join the committee as a standard committee member. For further details on any of these please contact the chair, Lawrence Shaw.
