DEAR CRM SIG and CRM AWG lists, apologies for cross posting to those of 
you who are on both lists.
I have had brief email chats with Martin Doerr and Stephen Steads about 
CRM SIG and CRM AWG participation in CAA2006, and suggest that 
appropriate discussions about  presentations at paper and poster 
sessions, workshops, symposia, and roundtable panels discussions be 
posted to the lists.

We hope that each and all of you can attend CAA2006.

Dear Colleague:

The Conference Organizing Committee for CAA2006 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.
