Are any classisicts planning to be attend the following?
34th Annual Meeting and Conference of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology CAA2006– Fargo April 18-21, 2006.
The Conference Organizing Committee for CAA2006 invites you to participate in the Annual Conference of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA).
You can participate in the conference by submitting an abstract for a paper presentation, symposium, poster, workshop, or roundtable panel. Or, simply attend the conference, with its open and cordial atmosphere, to learn more about new developments in computer applications and quantitative methods, and to meet and talk with international colleagues.
CAA is an international organization with the goal expanding fruitful communication between archaeologists, computer scientists, and mathematicians. The annual CAA conference provides the premier venue for the presentation and dissemination of studies on state-of-the-art and advanced computer technologies useful in the study of, preservation of, and access to archaeological resources. The conference also attracts museum specialists, graphic artists, geographers, physical anthropologists, design professionals, and more. The theme for CAA2006 is Digital Discovery: Exploring New
Frontiers in Human Heritage.
Conference papers (long and short forms), symposia, posters, workshops, and roundtable panels are welcome on any topic pertinent to CAA. Topics to be covered at the conference include but are not limited to the following.
* Virtual Reality Modeling: Site and Architecture Modeling; Augmented and Immersive Environments; Game Engines.
* Simulations and Complex Modeling: Paleoenvironments; Predictive Modeling; Artificial Intelligence.
* 3D Data Capture, Manipulation, and Analysis: Object Modeling (laser, CT, photogrammetry, etc.); Object Reconstruction (pottery, bone, etc.); Computer Aided Shape Analysis.
