Logistics

This Internatinal Colloquium on Digital Archaeology is open to about 40-60 participants, and is not exclusively designed for archaeologists but also for researchers from (paleo)environmental sciences.

Description

Recent advances in disciplines like computer and environmental sciences as well as the availability and processability of (openly shared) big data have triggered fundamental changes in research over the last decades. It has also expanded the toolbox of archaeological methods. While traditional methods remain important and continue to be used to investigate past human societies over time and space, novel quantitative approaches are rapidly gaining momentum.

The colloquium is especially concerned in discussing methods of predictive and socioecological modelling, network analysis as well as methods of pattern recognition in archaeological and environmental datasets.

Goals

The colloquium will address the issues of:

- quantitative approaches in spatial and non-spatial archaeological case studies
- data mining and new techniques of supervised and unsupervised pattern recognition in archaeological and environmental datasets
- applications and approaches to socioecological modelling on different scales and temporal resolutions.

Confirmed Speakers

Juan A. Barceló, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
