COMPUTER APPLICATIONS AND QUANTITATIVE METHODS IN ARCHAEOLOGY – UK CHAPTER
A paper from the MiPP team was submitted to The Institute of Archaeology and Antiquity (IAA) at the University of Birmingham and the CAA UK Chapter committee invited us to present at the CAA UK Chapter conference 2011. The conference was held at the Institute of Archaeology, Birmingham on the 1st April – 2nd April 2011.
Topics included initiatives within the sphere of archaeological computing, but papers that addressed the following themes were particularly encouraged:
§ Working in a Visual World – From gaming to solid modelling, mobile technology to augmented reality.
Other themes of long-standing interest to researchers and practitioners include:
§ Archaeological computing methods and techniques within the Cultural Resource Management (CRM) environment.
§ Pattern recognition – Finding patterns within archaeological data, site patterning, image recognition, etc.
§ Theory within Archaeological Computing – The application of archaeological theory within the computing environment e.g. post-processual approaches to archaeological computing.
