UPDATE 2016: Our conference paper ‘Interdisciplinary Methods of Data Recording, Management and Preservation’ is now available in: Campana, S., Scopigno, R., Carpentiero, G and Cirillo, M. Proceeding of the 43rd Annual Conference of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology. Siena, Italy. 30 October – 2 November 2015. Oxford, Archaeopress Publishing: 187-190.
Call For Papers
The 43rd Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology Conference (CAA) “KEEP THE REVOLUTION GOING” will be held in Siena, Italy, during March/April 2015. The conference explores a range of topics showcasing innovative technologies and its application in archaeological and computer science disciplines.
I will be co-chairing a session “Interdisciplinary methods of data recording, management and preservation”, and we are looking forward to papers presenting new technologies used in field and laboratory data collection, selection, modelling and its long term preservation.
2A Interdisciplinary methods of data recording, manage-ment and preservation
Authors: Cindy Nelson-Viljoen and Marta Lorenzon
- The large quantity of data created by new technologies, the data selection process through quantitative methods and data modelling (e.g. laser scanning, XRF/XRD data set, GIS).
- Viability and applicability of data management and its long-term preservation (e.g. storage security, durability and longevity).
- Recording, communication and publication of data (e.g. 3D printing).
Possible problems that should be considered includes data loss, long-term preservation and integration of different data set (e.g. laser scanning and aero-photography). This session further aims at attracting contributions showing the best practices in the use of interdisciplinary methodologies in field and laboratory data recording, management and storage. An interdisciplinary approach is often required creating a link between archaeologists and computer scientists. This cooperation opens new research opportunities as well as new models of elaborating archaeological data. The emphasis of the papers presented in the session should be on the integration between data recording, modelling, management and preservation.
Keywords: Data- recording, data- management, data-storage, data integration and modelling
Deadline for submission 20 November 2014.
