Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) is an international organization that brings together specialists in archaeology, computer science, mathematics, geographic information science, history, cultural heritage, conservation, digital humanities, web science, and museum studies that are interested in interdisciplinary collaboration.
The first CAA conference was organised in the UK in 1973 and since then, it has evolved into an international event, taking place each year all around the world.
The Mexican chapter of the international non-profit organization “Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology” (CAA-Mexico) was established in 2012 and it aims to:
- Provide a forum for specialists working in the field of computer applications in archaeology and quantitative methods to showcase and promote their work.
- Establish and encourage networks and collaboration between disciplines.
- Provide a forum to discuss the state and evolution of Computational Archaeology and technological advances within the field.
- Publish the results of research presented in the scientific meetings of CAA-Mexico.
- Provide guidance and support in the form of seminars and workshops.
- Provide support of relevant research in the Mexican region.
The members of CAA-Mexico are scientists and humanists from the fields of archaeology, history, mathematics, engineers, computer scientists, statisticians, web scientists and geographers among others, whose research concerns all fields of cultural heritage.
