Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I would like to invite you to the 42nd Annual Conference of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA), held at Institut d’Art et d’Archéologie, Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, Paris, on 22–25 April 2014.

CAA ( is an international and multidisciplinary academic community in archaeology, heritage management, computer science, informatics, and adjoining fields of research. An annual conference usually has plenary sessions, parallel sessions, poster sessions, hands-on workshops, roundtables, and scientific excursions, with hundreds of participants.

CAA welcomes papers or posters related to (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Field and laboratory data recording
  • Historiography
  • Ontologies and standards
  • Internet and archaeology
  • 3D Archaeology
  • AIS (Archaeological Information Systems)
  • GIS & spatial analysis
  • Mathematics and statistics in archaeology
  • Open source
  • Computing in epigraphy and history
  • Multi-agent systems and complex system modelling
  • Virtual archaeology

GIS, remote sensing, and spatio-temporal analysis have been one of major topics of CAA for decades, as they has in geoarchaeology.

Therefore, I recommend this conference to my friends and colleagues in the IAG Working Group on Geoarchaeology.

Abstracts are due 31 October 2013.

Please see the conference website ( for the detail.

I wish this announcement is of your interest, and hope to see you in Paris next April.

Best regards,
