Who are we?

CAA (Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology) is an international organisation that has been promoting interdisciplinary exchange between archaeologists, historians, mathematicians and computer scientists for 30 years (-> CAA). In addition to an international conference and a renowned publication series, the idea of the CAA is taken to different countries through so-called National Chapters and is deepened there.
