Second Call for Papers
Please share this announcement with colleagues.

Dear Colleague:
The Conference Organizing Committee for CAA 2006 invites you to participate in the Annual Conference of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA).

You can participate in the conference by submitting an abstract for a paper presentation, symposium, poster, workshop, or roundtable panel.  Or, simply attend the conference, with its open and cordial atmosphere, to learn more about new developments in computer applications and quantitative methods, and to meet and talk with international colleagues.

About CAA  
CAA is an international organization with the goal of expanding fruitful communication between archaeologists, computer scientists, and mathematicians.  The annual CAA conference provides the premier venue for the presentation and dissemination of studies on state-of-the-art and advanced computer technologies useful in the study of, preservation of, and access to archaeological resources.  The conference also attracts museum specialists, graphic artists, geographers, physical anthropologists, design professionals, and more.  The theme for CAA2006 is Digital Discovery: Exploring New Frontiers in Human Heritage.
