CAA-UK 2019, Bournemouth

The next annual meeting of the UK Chapter of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA-UK) will be held in Bournemouth on the 4th and 5th October 2019 at the Bournemouth International Centre.

One of the key goals of the UK chapter of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology is “to stimulate discussion and future progress in the application of information technology to archaeological research and practice”. 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.

The meeting will feature a number of keynotes, coming from both academic and commercial backgrounds, to discuss new horizons for digital archaeology. CAA-UK 2019 will be held in conjunction with BFX festival, the UK’s largest visual effects, computer games and animation festival. Paper submissions on any topic that is at the cutting edge of computer applications in archaeology will be welcomed. In addition to the academic papers, we will also welcome applications for showcases and/or demos of new software or software packages/plugins, as well as posters to be presented at a digital/interactive poster session (details forthcoming).
