Dear All,

The Institute of Archaeology at University College London and the CAA  
UK Chapter committee would like to invite you to submit a paper or  
poster presentation for the CAA UK Chapter conference 2010. The  
conference is to be held at the Institute of Archaeology, London on  
the 19th - 20th February 2010.

We welcome submissions on any topic within the sphere of  
archaeological computing, but this year we particularly encourage  
papers that address the following topical themes:

* *The 3 R's - Reusability, Repeatability and Robustness* - This can  
be in relation to many different areas such as quantitative modeling,  
ABM, spatial modeling, practical examples of data reuse, mash-ups, etc.

* *Mobility* - This can include submissions on any type of computer-
based mobility studies including (but not limited to) settlement  
patterns, linguistic mobility, temporal mobility, visitor movement,  
animal movement etc.

Other themes of long-standing interest to researchers and  
practitioners include:

* *Archaeological computing methods and techniques within the Cultural  
Resource Management (CRM) environment* - Submissions on current  
computing practice and method are particularly welcome from commercial  
archaeology companies, museum professionals, heritage managers, local  
authority officers or other bodies working within CRM.

* *Pattern recognition* - Finding patterns within archaeological data,  
site patterning, image recognition, etc.

* *Theory within Archaeological Computing* - The application of  
archaeological theory within the computing environment e.g post-
processual approaches to archaeological computing.

The papers should be 20 minutes in duration. Please send abstracts of  
up to 300 words to: caauk at ucl.ac.uk - the deadline is the 27th  
November 2009.
