UPDATE (September 2021)
Last year we had received a considerable number of abstracts for presentations at the 4th CAA-GR conference ‘Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology, Greece’, even though everybody’s work and research was already heavily affected by lockdowns and travel restrictions. During Summer 2020 we were intensely discussing together with the CAA-GR Board the practicability of organizing the conference under the circumstances of the COVID-19 crisis. We came to the conclusion that it would not have been possible to organize the conference as initially planned in October 2020, hosting a larger number of participants at the N.C.S.R. “Demokritos” campus. Alternatives would have been to organize the conference either as purely virtual event or as hybrid event with maybe a limited number of participants at N.C.S.R. “Demokritos”. Either way the opportunity for elaborate discussion or interaction among participants would have been missing, which constitutes usually an essential part of conferences. For this, in accordance with the CAA-GR Board we came to the decision to postpone the 4th CAA-GR conference to October 2021. However, unfortunately the situation has not considerably improved since then. For this, we had to decide to organize the conference as a pure web conference at the the 21th/22nd October 2021. This will is the definite date without another postponement. The abstracts for papers to be presented at the conference, which were submitted from Spring 2020 for the initial date and in Spring 2021, have been evaluated and the authors were contacted earlier this month to be informed about the final form of the conference. In the case, though, that you have submitted an abstract and you did not receive any message by us please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Registration for the conference is open now and we would like to ask at least the colleagues, who are planning to present a paper, to register until 10th of October. In view of the purely virtual form of the conference there will be no conference fees. The Proceedings of the conference are planned to be published in an open access virtual volume.
