Welcome

Welcome to the Greek chapter of the international non-profit organization "Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology» (CAA-GR). Members of CAA-GR are scientists from the fields of archeology, social sciences, life sciences, arts, mathematics, information technology, engineers and scientists in all fields of cultural heritage.

The Organising Committee wish to inform you that the Call for Papers for the 43rd International Conference on Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) is open. The conference will be held at the University of Siena (Italy), in collaboration with the National Research Council (ISTI-Pisa), from 30 March to 3 April 2015.

For more information please visit the conference website.

Remote Sensing (RS) in its various forms (aerial archaeology, satellite imagery, hyper spectral, LiDAR/ALS, UAVs, Geophysics, etc) has always been adopted from archaeologists world-wide. Archaeological survey is depending on these techniques; nevertheless they cannot reveal all the secrets of what is hidden beneath the soil.

In this session we would like to highlight good practices of RS techniques for archaeology and cultural heritage through case studies from all over Europe (and beyond) making good use of one or more RS techniques. A special focus should be given on the benefit of the combined interpretation of more than one data source.

We would also especially welcome papers that offer new ideas for new techniques (at least in their adaption for archaeology and cultural heritage) which have the potential to address some of the issues that haven't been solved so far.

Registration - Abstract Submission
Delegates can register and submit their abstracts at the RSCy2015 at the conference website.

The ‘Communities, Landscapes and Interaction in Neolithic Greece’ conference aims to investigate our changing perceptions on Neolithic landscapes in Greece and to reconsider the dynamics of human-environment interactions. Key topics carefully selected to unfold and trigger discussions on the emerged diversity and variability of Neolithic societies in Greece are landscape, land use, palaeoenvironment, networks and connectivity. Emphasis is given to the interdisciplinary nature of research that can produce synthetic results.

The conference is organized as a final event for the project ‘IGEAN – Innovative Geophysical Approaches for the Study of Early Agricultural Villages of Neolithic Thessaly’, carried out by the Laboratory of Geophysics – Satellite Remote Sensing and Archaeo-environment (GeoSat ReSeArch) of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies – Foundation for Research and Technology (IMS-FORTH) in Crete in cooperation with the ΙΓ' Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities in Volos.

The event will take place at the Conference Room of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies in Rethymno, Crete, on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th of May 2015.

Please check the website for further information.

The 1st International Workshop on use of Remote Sensing for Monitoring, Modeling and Management of Cultural Heritage and Landscapes proposes an open discussion regarding the current contribution of Remote Sensing, the integration of RS technologies but also the potential challenges that the scientific community should address in the near future (Sentinel sensors). The topics in this workshop include but are not limited uses of satellite imagery, laser and range airborne data, ground truth measurements (GPR, spectro-radiometer) and UAV technologies.

The aim of this Session is to introduce the range of computational methods available to archaeologists, museologists, scientists. The objectives are to enable one to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of, and critically evaluate, the range of computational methods available to archaeologists, and their contribution to archaeological research. The Session will present the range of computer-based approaches to archaeological work at a variety of scales introducing multimedia, ‘Virtual Reality’, Geographic Information Systems, forms of urban analysis, data capture technologies, simulation and issues relating to digital data management and restoration.
