European Archaeological Council Symposium On Digital Archaeology


Student & Early Career Researchers Symposium

16-17 March 2016, Old Ship Hotel, Brighton, United Kingdom

The aim of this year’s European Archaeological Council (EAC) symposium is to explore exciting developments in digital technologies and consider how they may become embedded in general archaeological policy and practice over the next few years. As ambassadors of the future, we want students and early career researchers to provide their vision as input to the discussions about Digital Archaeology and the future of the field. We would like to bring together archaeologists, technologists, and researchers who may be incorporating digital technologies to inform research, collect data, and visualise findings and tools that engage communities, encourage outreach, and increase impact. We invite abstract submission on the many aspects related to digital technologies and archaeology.

The student and early career gathering will mirror the three general themes of the Symposium: Measuring and Sensing, Data to Knowledge, and Visualising the Past.  Topics include (but are note limited to) the following areas: 

  • Archaeological data recording
  • Data modelling, management and integration
  • Archaeological interpretation and modelling the past.
  • Linked data and the semantic web
  • Data analysis
  • Data visualisation
  • 3D technologies, including modelling, visualisation and simulations
  • Hyperspectral imaging, remote sensing, and GIS
  • Users and applications

This call is for abstracts for oral presentations and may be no longer than 500 words. The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to January 29, 2016. Please include the theme(s) you intend to address in your presentation. Given the fixed number of sessions, sessions are expected to involve presentations of 20 minutes long. Please send abstracts to
