Appel à article JCAA


(franck.leclercq) #1

Chers et chères collègues,

Vous trouverez ci-dessous un appel à article pour une collection spéciale du Journal of Computer Applications in Archaeology intitulée “ Spatial Computation in Archaeology and History ”. L’appel est ouvert jusqu’au 1er juillet 2021 , et les articles acceptés seront publiés au fil de l’eau.

We are glad to inform you that a Special Issue/Collection: “Spatial Computation in Archaeology and History ” is now open in the Journal of Computer Applications in Archaeology and the manuscripts submission will remain open until 1 July 2021 . You are cordially invited to submit your abstract.

CALL FOR PAPERS:

The study of past societies requires describing and explaining patterns and their dynamics (diffusion of materials, settlement organization, raw material exchanges, biological indicators of landscape changes, etc.) in a multi-dimensional spatio-temporal environment from incomplete, ambiguous and heterogeneous datasets, which often lead to (retro)prediction.

Though traditional methods remain important to investigate material culture complexes and past human societies over time and space, novel quantitative approaches based on computational modelling are rapidly gaining momentum. Researchers can rely nowadays on multi-modelling approaches from various backgrounds, including conceptual models, data mining and data-driven analysis (e.g. machine learning and stochastic models), spatial analysis and computer simulations, at different stage of the work process.

In such context, this special collection aims at exploring challenges and opportunities offered by bringing together traditional archaeological questions with the most cutting-edge technological applications.

We invite contributions related with, but not limited to the following complementary thematic studies and methodological approaches:

  • Analysing the emergence and/or the evolution of settlement patterns, network of exchange and/or various limits and “borders”;
  • Understanding the progressive organisation of territories during various time scale, from archaeological periods to shorter historical times;
  • Using and crossing all the diversity of evidences and information available, all the diversity of methods used to retrace the “long-time” history territories, whether they are mainly derived from naturalistic approaches, from historical archives, or on numerical methods involving modelling.
  • Presenting how the successful interdisciplinary collaborations between thematic approaches (from archaeology, history and/or anthropology) and approaches based on spatial analyses, quantitative geography, and/or modelling allow the emergence of new scientific questions and knowledge.

For more details concerning the Special Issue and submission guidelines, please visit the following website: https://journal.caa-international.org/about/special-collections/. If you need any further information do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to receiving your contribution!
