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

*www.caa2009.org http://www.caa2009.org/*

*Deadline: December 19, 2008*

The 37th annual CAA conference will be held from 22 to 26 March 2008 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 (www.caa2009.org
http://www.caa2009.org/). 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 (www.ecai.org/
http://www.ecai.org/). 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 today.

This Call for Papers invites the submission of abstracts for papers and
posters to be presented at the conference. The Scientific Committee
(www.caa2009.org/ TopCommittees.cfm
http://www.caa2009.org/%20TopCommittees.cfm) has accepted a wide range
of proposals for thematic sessions, workshops, and round tables. These
have been listed on the conference website at www.caa2009.org
http://www.caa2009.org/. 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:
www.caa2009.org/PapersCall.cfm http://www.caa2009.org/PapersCall.cfm.
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 Committee.

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.
