UK Chapter of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology 2020
The Department of History at Royal Holloway is delighted to host the UK Chapter of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology annual conference to be held online on Monday 2nd November 2020.
The theme of the event is “Equality, Diversity and Accessibility”. We are inviting proposals for presentations that engage or align with this theme in relation to computational approaches to archaeology, and how we examine and present the past.
We are accepting proposals of 20-minutes presentations or 45-minute roundtables consisting of three x 10min presentations and a 15min discussion. Deadline for proposals is Monday 28th September 2020. Please send your proposals to the organisers at: Catriona.Cooper@RHUL.ac.uk including:
- Title of the Paper/ Roundtable
- Name, affiliation and email of the proposer (s)
- Abstract (maximum of 350 words)
We particularly welcome proposals from underrepresented groups in the field and minoritized groups such as, Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and disabled researchers. We encourage attendees of all ages, levels of experience/qualification, and across all disciplines.
If you have any concerns or questions in advance, during or after the event please contact Catriona Cooper (Catriona.Cooper@rhul.ac.uk) or Lawrence Shaw (Lawrence.Shaw@newforestnpa.gov.uk) via email.
Discrimination on the basis of age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability, nationality, religion or any other basis are not tolerated. We do not tolerate harassment of any form.
CAA-UK is a membership organisation and a fee (£5) is usually paid annually to attend the conference and to be part of the organisation. Given the current crisis we are offering free membership to CAA-UK for the year 2020-2021. The membership goes to support accessibility bursaries at the following year’s conference and future CPD events which we are planning. We would encourage all participants to consider supporting the group through payment wherever possible. This can be done through BACS or cheque payment, details to follow when registration opens.
