CALL FOR PAPERS FOR
“THE VALUE OF DATA IN ARCHAEOLOGY”

Submission deadline: July 9th
Notification of acceptance: July 23rd
Registration deadline: September 27th


It is our great pleasure to announce the 2018 Joint Chapter Meeting of CAA Netherlands/Flanders and CAA Germany which will be held in in Bochum, Germany, October 4th to 6th, 2018. The conference is organised in collaboration with the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum (DBM) Bochum, Department of Research and with the Institute of Archaeology of the Ruhr-University Bochum, and will take place in the House of Archaeology.

The CAA is an international organisation that brings together archaeologists, mathematicians and computer scientists to foster communication between these disciplines. Looking back at more than 40 years since its inception it is both one of the longest-running and largest organisation in this subject. The CAA Netherlands / Flanders and the CAA Germany are the two national chapters of the CAA and are dedicated to uphold the interests of the CAA in the respective countries, to inform interested archaeologists, mathematicians and computer scientists from academia and industry of newest developments, foster exchange, present new research results etc. Membership is open to anyone – please check out the details of the respective website. Please note that membership is not obligatory for participation in the meeting.

The Joint Chapter Meetings are an ideal opportunity for archaeologists and scientists to come together, present their latest products and research results or discuss problems and challenges they are facing. We therefore invite contributions of research results, open challenges and work in progress that fall into the topics listed below. Accepted contributions will be invited to present their results in the sessions at the conference – topics for discussion are thereby highly encouraged. All accepted abstracts will be published on the CAA chapter websites (http://www.caanlfl.nl/ and http://ag-caa.de/).

The conference will be concluded by a one day workshop program on Saturday – the topics will be announced by email and on the conference website(s).

Archäoinformatik als neue Studienrichtung an der Universität Köln

Die Universität Köln bietet einen neuen Studiengang “Archäoinformatik” an. Die Studienrichtung führt Studierende in die gesamte Bandbreite der Fachrichtung ein. Sie ist so konzipiert, dass sie Studierende mit praktischen, theoretischen und kritischen Einschätzungsfähigkeiten in etablierten und aufkommenden Technologien der Archäologie ausstattet, die ihnen bei einer Karriere in der Wissenschaft, im Kulturgutmanagement, in Museen und in wichtigen staatlichen und privaten Denkmalschutzorganisationen zugutekommen. Studierende werden die Möglichkeit haben, das CoDArchLab zu nutzen, welches mit Lehr- und Lernräumen ausgestattet ist. Zahlreiche Arbeitsplätze (mit PCs und Macs) stehen mit kommerzieller und open-source Software, sowie eine spezielle Ausrüstung für die rechnergestützte Bildbearbeitung, zur Verfügung.
