Quantitative approaches, spatial statistics and socioecological modelling
International Colloquium on Digital Archaeology in Bern
Organizing Committee: Maria Elena Castiello, Julian Laabs and Martin Hinz / Institute of Archaeological Sciences, Univ. Bern
Recent advances in disciplines like computer and environmental sciences as well as the availability and processability of (openly shared) big data have triggered fundamental changes in research over the last decades. It has also expanded the toolbox of archaeological methods. While traditional methods remain important and continue to be used to investigate past human societies over time and space, novel quantitative approaches are rapidly gaining momentum.
The three main sessions will deal with the topics...
quantitative approaches in spatial and non-spatial archaeological case studies.
data mining and new techniques of supervised and unsupervised pattern recognition in archaeological and environmental datasets.
applications and approaches to socioecological modelling on different scales and temporal resolutions.
Submission of abstracts and registration for the conference involves the following steps (see details below):
a) Everybody interested in participating (with or without abstract submission) needs to apply with a basic registration via the 'EKAS' online tool.
b) After the basic registration, abstracts may immediately be submitted via the same 'EKAS' online tool.
