Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

As keynote speaker, Tom Brughmans from the Archaeological Computing Research Group, University of Southampton (UK) will present his project on Archaeological Network Analysis; he has established an online blog for this new field of archaeological research (https://archaeologicalnetworks.wordpress.com/) as well as a network of researchers interested in NA. Most recently, he has organized a session on Archaeological and Historical NA for the “39th Annual Conference of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology“ (CAA 2011) in Beijing (China; cf. https://archaeologicalnetworks.wordpress.com/caa-2011/).

Then there will be opportunity for all participants to present and discuss their experiences with Network Analysis (participants are invited to briefly – 5 minutes – present their ongoing projects– laptop and video-beamer will be provided).
