Modelling Spheres of Interaction - Mosaic - International Summer School at Kiel University
05-09 September 2016

At Kiel University there is a growing interdisciplinary community which strives to establish an integrative concept and culture of modelling. The intention behind Mosaic is to convey the Kiel spirit of interdisciplinary modelling and to facilitate knowledge transfer on basic theories, methods and techniques in spatio-temporal modelling.
In this summer school we will introduce participants to the basics of modelling, mathematics, trends, boundaries, movement, interaction and networks.

The Summer School focuses on interaction as a key concept in social life, and on methods for reconstructing and modeling spheres of interaction at different spatial and temporal scales. Students will learn an innovative approach, used in recent studies, for modelling spheres of interaction. The course will cover a variety of theories and concepts that will enable students to apply this method to further regions, material groups, and time periods. The course is divided into individual lessons presented by experts, thus providing a diverse overview of approaches.

For more information visit the website or view the flyer.

The Second "Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology" (CAA-GR 2016) conference will be held at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 December 2016. A workshop (theme to be confirmed) is scheduled on Monday 19 December 2016.

The organizing committee of CAA-GR 2016 will soon invite contributions that fall within the following research areas:

  • Field prospection and recording methods for excavation and laboratory work
  • Data modeling, management and integration
  • Linked data and the semantic web
  • Data analysis and visualization
  • 3D modeling, virtual reality and simulations
  • Geomatics, aerial photography and remote sensing
  • GIS applications in a historical context
  • Digital data long-term preservation and re-use
  • Users and interfaces: education, museums and multimedia
  • Theoretical issues on computer applications in Archaeology and the Humanities
  • Digital Humanities and Social Media
  • Digital Cities, cultural heritage management and protection
  • Crowdsourcing for Humanities Research

The conference proceedings will be published in the form of e-publication (with ISBN) and will become available on-line through our web-site soon after the end of the conference.

The call for papers and additional information on CAA GR 2016 will be published on the conference  website in April 2016.

Athena Research Centre / DigitalCuration Unit organises and hosts a Training Worshop on 'Digital methods and tools for archaeological data curation', open to participants interested in the use of digital methods and tools for accessing, representing, visualising and communicating archaeological resources. It is taught by an international faculty, including instructors from the Digital Curation Unit, the University of Oxford and the University of Southampton.

This workshop will be held in Athens, Greece on 29 June - 1 July 2015 at the Athens University History Museum. It is part of a five-day Summer School organised in the context of the ARIADNE project on "Emerging digital practices in archaeological research".The goal is to enable researchers and professionals to engage with cutting edge and emerging digital practices of archaeological research, ranging from new methods to capture, organize and curate fieldwork information to new approaches to archaeological interpretation and dissemination, mediated by digital infrastructures.

The Summer School is organised as part of the ARIADNE Transnational Access (TNA) activities, which offer researchers the opportunity to participate in training visits to carry forward their own research.
