Dear all,

Herewith, we again would like to remind you about the 2016 Joint Chapter Meeting of CAA Netherlands/Flanders and CAA Germany that will be held in in Ghent, Belgium, November 24–25, 2016, in collaboration with the Department of Archaeology of Ghent University and the Flemish Heritage Agency.

We want to acknowledge the authors who have already submitted their paper proposals in advance of the September 1st, 2016 deadline. As we have received many requests to extend the deadline because of the summer holidays, the final deadline for submission is Friday September 16th, 2016.

We welcome proposals for 20-minute papers on any of the above topics. Abstract in English should be sent to Abstracts will be considered by the committees of CAA NL/FL and CAA DE. Abstract should include name and surname, university, institute or company (if applicable), address and telephone number, e-mail, session for which is applied, and abstract text (max 500 words).

The aim of the CAA meetings is to bring together academic and commercial archaeologists with a particular interest in using mathematics and computer science for archaeological research. For the 2016 Joint Chapter Meeting of CAA, we kindly invite papers focussing on the following themes:

  • Statistical Analysis / Network Analysis in Archaeology
  • Remote Sensing and Landscape Archaeology
  • Digital Archaeology and the Wider Public
  • Archival and Management of (3D) Archaeological Data

The conference will be preceded by a LiDAR-workshop (November 23rd, 2016). During this workshop, participants will learn what LiDAR data is, how to effectively work with LiDAR (e.g. by building digital elevation and surface models and by looking into different LiDAR visualisation and analysis techniques), and how to use it for archaeological research.

For further information, see the conference website ( or contact the organising committee (

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Ghent at the 2016 Joint Chapter Meeting of CAA Netherlands/Flanders and CAA Germany.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee;
