The CAA UK committee have opened the call for papers for the 2021 online conference. The 2021 CAA UK conference will be held across two half days in December (10th – 11th) and this year’s theme is an open call. We encourage proposals for 20 minute papers as well as discussion panels around recent themes and research within computational applications and quantitative methods in archaeology. Please send a suggested title and a short abstract (250 words) through to the Chair, Lawrence Shaw (firstname.lastname@example.org), by 17th October 2021.
This year’s conference will be a repeat of that seen in 2020, with the event hosted across Zoom rather than in person. In addition to this, the committee are pleased to announce the introduction of the new CAA-UK Post Graduate Award. This award looks to acknowledge postgraduate research undertaken at Masters level and will present a £100 prize to one researcher. To be eligible, participants must submit a paper proposal for the conference which covers their masters research theme and inform the committee that they wish to be considered for the award. Submitted proposals that are accepted for consideration will be judged by the CAA-UK committee members across the conference and the winner will be announced shortly after the final paper. For more information about the award or if you have any questions, please contact one of the committee members.
Finally, the CAA-UK committee are also looking to expand and appoint a new general committee member. This will bring the committee up to four members and it is hoped that this individual may take on management of the CAA UK web pages. If you wish to be considered for this role, please email the CAA-UK secretary stating you wish to be considered and provide a covering statement. For more information about this role or if you have any questions, please contact our secretary Victoria Donnelly (email@example.com).
