Computational approaches to archaeological spaces:

This volume of original chapters written by experts in the field offers a snapshot of how historical built spaces, past cultural landscapes, and archaeological distributions are currently being explored through computational social science. It focuses on the continuing importance of spatial and spatio-temporal pattern recognition in the archaeological record, considers more wholly model-based approaches that fix ideas and build theory, and addresses those applications where situated human experience and perception are a core interest. Reflecting the changes in computational technology over the past decade, the authors bring in examples from historic and prehistoric sites in Europe, Asia, and the Americas to demonstrate the variety of applications available to the contemporary researcher.

CretaMASSS2013/HAISS'13 - Agents, the first ever Multiagent Systems Summer School in Greece, will be held at the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering of the Technical University of Crete (TUC), at Chania, Crete, Greece, from the 22nd to the 26th of July 2013.

It will be offering a well-balanced tutorial curriculum, covering topics such as Information Sharing in Large MASTeamworkGame TheoryEconomies and Marketsthe Smart GridRoboticsAgent-Based Models (and their application in interpreting archaeological data), and Agent-Based Software Development.

The event is co-organized by the Hellenic AI Society (EETN), the Computational Social Choice ICT COST Action IC1205, and the Technical University of Crete. It is also endorsed by EURAMAS (the European Association for Multi-Agent Systems), and ACM-SIGART (Association for Computing Machinery - Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence).

One of the primary aims of the School is to promote MAS research in the Balkans, Southeastern Europe, Eastern Mediterranean, and the Middle East, and to contribute to building ties among MAS researchers in these areas. Of course, however, we welcome attendees from all over the world.

Please also note that a number of scholarships to help fund student travel expenses will be awarded, according to criteria relating to academic merit and financial need/student location of origin. Priority for support will be given to applicants studying at Universities of the following countries: Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Lebanon, FYR Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey
