*FIRST REMINDER FOR PAPERS AND POSTERS, Computer Applications to Archaeology
2009 (CAA)*


*Deadline: December 19, 2008*

The 37th annual CAA conference will be held from 22 to 26 March 2009 in
Williamsburg, Virginia (USA) and will bring together students, researchers,
heritage managers and other experts to present, examine and discuss current
theory and application of quantitative methods and information technologies
in Archaeology (< The CAA conference has
established a strong tradition of international, open communication and
exchange that crosses boundaries between archaeologists and colleagues
working in quantitative fields such as mathematics and computer science. The
conference also regularly attracts students, researchers and practitioners
from geography, geomatics, life sciences, physical anthropology, museology,
field archaeology and others. In 2009, CAA will co-meet with ECAI, the
Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative ( It will also offer
optional short, introductory courses in the use of equipment (such as 3D
scanners), hardware, and software typically used by digital archaeologists

This Call for Papers invites the submission of abstracts for papers and
posters to be presented at the conference. The Scientific Committee
( has accepted a wide range of proposals
for thematic sessions, workshops, and round tables. These have been listed
on the conference website at Posters can also be presented
at the conference in a special area set aside for this purpose. Please
submit your abstract for a paper or poster online at: An abstract should be between 300 and 500
words in length, should clearly indicate the reason why your work is
original and significant, should contain a short bibliography (if there is
important earlier work to cite), should indicate the session(s) in which the
paper could appropriately be presented, and should also state whether you
are requesting 15 minutes for a short presentation or 25 minutes for a long
presentation. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to assign a paper
to the session that appears most appropriate, which may sometimes not
correspond to the session to which the author(s) applied. The abstracts for
posters should provide the same information, except for indication of an
appropriate session and length.

*The deadline for submission of all abstracts is December 19, 2008*. You
will be notified by January 15, 2009 about the decision of the Scientific

It is recommended that travelers needing a visa to visit the United States
apply at least 90 days before arriving, or by approximately the fourth week
of December. The Scientific Committee will try to expedite decisions on
abstract submissions of attendees needing a visa so that they will know
whether their abstract has been accepted prior to beginning the visa
process. If you need a visa and submit your abstract by December 4, 2008,
the Scientific Committee will make every effort to notify you of its
decision by December 19, 2008.
