Colloque, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 Avril 2014 : 41e Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology in Paris
CAA 2014 PARIS
The CAA (Computers Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology) is an international congress which takes place every year for 40 years[i]. It is held every two years only in Europe. The last conferences have taken place in China, in the United States, in England and in Spain and the CAA 2013 will take place in Australia.
This conference usually gathers between 200 and 300 participants – students and professionals – and takes place according to the principle of parallel sessions and workshops (until 8 sessions grouping from 15 to 80 persons). We expect in Paris about 400 persons, given the centrality of the place and the strong presence of archaeologists and french students in Paris.
The organizers have created since 2009 a national conference on archaeological computing (JIAP : Journées Informatique et Archéologie de Paris) which took place three times and gathers above hundred archaeologists, engineers and IT specialists during June. The proceedings are published in an international journal “Archeologia e Calcolatori” [ii]
The Conference will be helped by the following partner institutions: Art history and Archaeology Departments university Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and Paris-Sorbonne, Maison Archéologie Ethnologie Nanterre, UMR Archéologies et Sciences de l’Antiquité-Nanterre, UMR Trajectoires-Nanterre, LAMOP, Doctoral School of archaeology ED112 university Paris 1, INRAP, INHA, network ISA, TGE Adonis CNRS, INSHS CNRS (INSHS National Center for Scientific Research), Ministry of Culture, local authorities (Ville de Paris, Région Île-de-France). Acts will be published under the shape of a volume containing the best communications.
