The International conference on Computer Applications & Quatitative Methods in Archaeology is the most important conference on Computational Archaeology or Archaeoinformatics worldwide. It is held every year all around the world. Next year, it will take place in Tübingen, Germany.

Next years international conference on Computer Applications & Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (short: CAA) is taken place in Tübingen in the South of Germany. It will take place from the 19th until the 23rd of March 2018 at the Eberhard Karls University. The sessions are very divers and cover topics like Digital methods and teaching, film and video in archaeology, automation and computational analysis or Immersive Techniques. All 42 (!) sessions can be seen here. It is the 46th time this annual conference is being held.

From the first conference in 1973 until 2015, every conference has been published as proceedings and are partly available on the website of CAA. There are several national chapters of the CAA, so that there is also a CAA Germany or CAA Greece. To participate in the CAA, you have to be a member and pay an annual fee. The aims of the conference are to bring together archaeologists, mathematicians, computer scientists and other researchers, professionals, and students interested in computer applications and quantitative methods in archaeology; to encourage communication and collaboration between these disciplines and practitioners and to provide an arena for the presentation and discussions of current and future developments in computer applications and quantitative methods for archaeology.

You can find further information about the CAA on their official website or follow their Twitter on @CAA_Int

About the Author

My name is Sebastian. I am a research associate at the Institute of Archaeology at the University of Cologne, Germany, Discipline for Archaeoinformatics. My special interest lies in reconstructing ancient architecture and thinking about ways to present archaeological knowledge to other researchers and the public in an informative and appealing way. I teach 3D documentation of material culture as well as 3D modelling and archaeological reconstruction and work on several projects as part of my job.
