SECOND CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
The 1st Annual Antiquist Workshop will be hosted at Southampton University Archaeology Department in April 2008. The purpose of the Workshop is to provide postgraduate students in Archaeological Informatics and associated disciplines with the opportunity to:
- Broaden their skill base with a short series of practical seminars focusing on real-world applications of IT in archaeology
- Get career guidance from professionals working in the field
- Network with peers from other institutions
- Become involved with the Antiquist online community for IT & Cultural Heritage
Seminars will be based on topics requested by participants but are likely to include GIS, web-based mapping, 3D visualisation & reconstruction, data structuring and scripting. Workshop attendance is free but participants will need to pay for food and accommodation where required. The organisers will be happy to reserve accommodation at a local hostel or hotel on request. Places on the workshop are limited and will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. Topics requested by early registrants may also be given priority. The final deadline for registration is 10 February 2008.
In order to register please send an email to [email protected] stating your name, institution and course, two specific topics which would be of interest to you, and whether accommodation arrangements should be made.
Please feel free to forward this to any person or list likely to be interested.
