Elections for CAA-GR Board members

According to the CAA-GR constitution members of the CAA-GR Board are elected for a 3 year term with the right to be reelected for a second term. The first 3 year term of the current Board is close to completion and there will be elections for new Board members at the next CAA-GR General Meeting in Siena. Two of the current Board members, Angeliki Chrysanthi (Secretary) and Eleni Kotoula (Treasurer), will not stand for re-election. We would like to thank them for their dedication and contribution to the aims of CAA-GR and for the excellent collaboration in the last three years. The rest of the current Board members have already given notice that will stand for re-election, however, all Board positions will be open to interested eligible candidates.

Tasks and responsibilities of the Board

The tasks of the Board according to the constitution are:

  1. To meet at least once a year during the international annual conference or at any other place convenient to the Board’s members.
  2. To ensure, to the best of their ability, that a national conference does take place every two – three years.
  3. To arrange to the best of their ability, a peer-reviewed publication of selected papers given at these conferences.
  4. The Board members - to the best of their ability - should pursue participation in the international CAA conferences during their term. One Board member will be designated as the representative of the national Greek chapter to CAA international (ex-officio member of the steering committee of the international CAA).


Eligible candidates are CAA GR members that in the past have exhibited participation at the CAA International conferences.


Eligible candidates should notify the current members of the Board for their willingness to stand for elections for a position at the Board at least 10 days before the election date. Interested CAA-GR members should submit a candidacy declaration form through the web site of CAA-GR by indicating the position of the Board at which they would like to be elected and uploading a 2-page CV, as well as a photograph.

The corresponding form is can be found here.

All information on eligible candidates will be made accessible to CAA-GR members via the CAA-GR website.

CAA International moves to a members-based organisation

Dear CAA member or ex-member,
According to recent constitutional changes, CAA International will move to a members-based organisation model starting on 1 January 2015. This may have some implications for you. Please read carefully throughout, and contact us if you have questions.

The major change is that, from now on, being a member of CAA and attending a CAA conference will be two separate and different things, much more than before. You will be able to manage your membership details and renew your membership (or become a member if you are not one) online through the new portal. Separately, each year's conference will allow you to register for that conference online through the site, but you will need to be a member in order to do so. To make things easier, you will be able to enrol as a member and register for a conference in a single step through the conference web site. You will see all this working for the Siena conference in early 2015.

These are some tips and facts that you should take into account as well:

  • The membership portal at is already up and running. You can create your account there and update your profile as necessary.
  • Please use the same email address when you register for a conference as you have used for your membership account. Otherwise the system won't be able to match your details.
  • If you have enrolled as a CAA member as part of conference registration, your membership portal user name will be your email address.

We hope that these changes will allow CAA to keep developing its annual conference and, at the same time, grow beyond it to new areas of activity.

If you have questions or find issues with the new organisation model and the associated web sites, do not hesitate to contact us at any time. Thank you.

Best regards,

Cesar Gonzalez-Perez
CAA International Membership Secretary

Call for papers: International CAA 2015 Conference

The Organising Committee wish to inform you that the Call for Papers for the 43rd International Conference on Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) is open.

Workshop/Special Session on "Remote Sensing and GIS for Archaeology and Cultural Heritage"

Remote Sensing (RS) in its various forms (aerial archaeology, satellite imagery, hyper spectral, LiDAR/ALS, UAVs, Geophysics, etc) has always been adopted from archaeologists world-wide. Archaeological survey is depending on these techniques; nevertheless they cannot reveal all the secrets of what is hidden beneath the soil.

In this session we would like to highlight good practices of RS techniques for archaeology and cultural heritage through case studies from all over Europe (and beyond) making good use of one or more RS techniques. A special focus should be given on the benefit of the combined interpretation of more than one data source.

We would also especially welcome papers that offer new ideas for new techniques (at least in their adaption for archaeology and cultural heritage) which have the potential to address some of the issues that haven't been solved so far.

Registration - Abstract Submission
Delegates can register and submit their abstracts at the RSCy2015 at the conference website.
