UPDATE (July 2020)
We have 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 heavily affected by lockdowns and travel restrictions during this year’s spring. During the last weeks, however, we were intensely discussing the practicability of organizing the conference under the current circumstances of the COVID-19 crisis. In any case it will certainly not be possible to organize the conference as initially planned in October, hosting a larger number of participants at the N.C.S.R. “Demokritos” campus. Alternatives would be to organize the conference either as purely virtual event or as hybrid event with a limited number of participants at N.C.S.R. “Demokritos” and facilities for web presentations by presenters who cannot join the conference in person. However, either way the opportunity for elaborate discussion or interaction among participants will be 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.
The postponed conference will be jointly organized by the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and the Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications The focus of the conference will remain on ‘Big Data in Archaeology’. In the framework of the conference a one-day workshop on ‘Management and evaluation of Big Data‘ will be organized.
