Good news for everyone interested in paradata! At the forthcoming Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) 2020 conference in Oxford held April 14-17, 2020, there will be a dedicated roundtable session on the topic. Detailed instructions for submissions and the official CAA call for papers will be coming out soon but as a sort of a teaser, a brief description of the session can be found below.
Many of the discussions at this year's edition of the Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology CAA 2016 conference held earlier this week in Oslo were directly or somewhat less directly related to anxieties (and occasional optimism) about the impact of various types of technologies (and social arrangements related to technologies) on archaeological (information) work and practices.
The Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology conference was held this year in Siena. Conference had gathered approximately 500 delegates and a very impressive number of papers, posters and roundtables. The book of abstracts was massive and reminded of proceedings volumes of the same conference from ten years ago.
