Welcome to CAA-GR 2014

The first CAA GR conference will be held at the Institute of Mediterranean Studies at Rethymno, Crete from Friday 7th – Saturday 8th March 2014.

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 to discuss the various practical, theoretical and methodological issues involved in the increasing number of computer applications in Greek archaeological and cultural heritage contexts, and share 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 these areas of research. 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.
