CAA-GR Conference 2018

3rd CAA-GR Conference Limassol, Cyprus 2018

The third CAA-GR conference will be held at the Cyprus University of Technology, in Limassol, Cyprus, from Tuesday 19th to Wednesday 20th June 2018.The main venue will be preceded by workshops on Monday, 18th June 2018.

CAA (Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology) is the premier international conference for all aspects of computing, quantitative methods and digital applications in Archaeology. With a history going back to 1972, CAA encourages participation from scholars, specialists and experts in the fields of archaeology, history, cultural heritage, digital scholarship, GIS, mathematics, semantic web, informatics and members of other disciplines that complement and extend the interests of CAA.

The Greek chapter of CAA International (CAA-GR) was established in 2012, in order to develop a forum for discussing practical, theoretical and methodological issues involved in the increasing number of computer applications in Greek archaeological and cultural heritage contexts, and sharing the results of related research. CAA-GR aims to encourage communication between different disciplines, to provide a survey of present work in the field, to stimulate discussion and further develop relevant research areas. For these reasons, it welcomes archaeologists with expertise from a variety of disciplines in the field of social sciences, life sciences, engineering and arts, actively involved in computer applications in the cultural heritage domain, conservators, mathematicians and computer scientists.

The third CAA GR conference promises to capitalize the results of the previous ones, hosted by the Institute of Mediterranean Studies in Rethymno-Crete and the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, in 2014 and 2016 respectively. “Spreading Excellence in Computer Applications for Archaeology and Cultural Heritage” is the theme of the third CAA GR conference.
