The current chair of CAA-UK will be stepping down in October 2019 after three and half years in post.
James has served the first term of his office and has decided not to run for a second term. As an Executive steering member for CAA-International he believes that others should come forward so that that they can be given the opportunity to become more involved within the CAA community.
The UK Chapter of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) therefore invites CAA-UK members to apply for this UK steering committee position.
Registration for the next annual meeting of the UK Chapter of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology is now open. CAA-UK 2019 will be held in Bournemouth on the 4th and 5th October 2019 at the Bournemouth International Centre.
Tickets can be booked here. The full programme will be available next week.
This year’s meeting aims to focus on what lies ahead for digital and computational approaches to archaeology, to discuss future horizons for the field, and how state-of-the-art and upcoming technologies and approaches will continue to revolutionise how archaeology is done, what questions it addresses, how the past is thought about and how heritage is presented to the public.
We look forward to seeing many of you in Bournemouth in October.

The preliminary schedule for CAAUK is up and registration is open (see both below). We have full tickets and concession tickets for those that can not afford to pay the full price. There is no criteria for concession tickets except for need. If you can not afford the full price then purchase a concession ticket.
Ticket sales will end when we have reached our fire capacity limit for the building (160) or October 19th, whichever comes first. Because of catering we can not accept purchases of tickets at the conference as we need to book food a week in advance.
You can attend one day or both days of the conference and each ticket includes CAAUK membership.
Group Travel and Bursaries
We are looking to support the travel of groups – University society, companies, just a bunch of friends interested in great archaeology and computing, etc. If you could get in touch with us right away if there will be several of you traveling and we can see if we can support you. Individuals will be considered too but preference will be given to groups.
Donations help us support bursaries and travel for those who are having financial difficulties. Please consider donating when purchasing a ticket.
Thank you and we hope to see you in Edinburgh.
This is the preliminary schedule for the conference so it is subject to change.

- Integration of scientific and theoretical methods in computing
- Photogrammetry & 3D Recording
- Public Engagement
- Semantic web
- Social media
- Statistical methods
- Visualisation & 3D modelling
- Visualisation & Mixed Reality in Archaeology
- Website development in the heritage sector
Please note that this list is not exhaustive and we will consider submissions on any relevant topics.
Speakers will be allocated a maximum of 20 minutes for presentations. Please send your
abstracts to the organisers at: firstname.lastname@example.org
