The CAA2024 conference, which was approved by the membership during the 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM), will be in Auckland, New Zealand, from 8 – 13 April 2024.
Bidding to Host a Future CAA Conference
The conference is vital for building, maintaining, and strengthening the CAA community. Through visiting different geographic areas, CAA seeks to engage new researchers involved with computational archaeology within a region, enabling the participation of students and scholars who may never have been able to travel to a CAA International conference before. The annual meeting also provides an important opportunity for attendees to learn more about archaeology and digital projects in diverse parts of the world.
CAA conference locations are selected, usually two to three years in advance, through a vote of the membership at the AGM. At least one member of the organising team must be a long-standing member of CAA International, and a bid should be supported by a national chapter, if one exists within the region. All conference organisers must be willing to abide by CAA Ethics Policy, including Appendix IV which outlines requirements for hosting the annual meeting.
CAA2025 & CAA2026 Proposals
CAA is currently accepting bids to host the CAA2025 and CAA2026 conferences. Proposals must be submitted to the secretary by 1 February 2023. Prospective conference organisers will be invited to give a 5-minute presentation at the CAA2023 AGM in Amsterdam, after which the membership will be asked to vote. Prospective organisers are encouraged to contact CAA’s secretary well in advance of the deadline to request a copy of the conference guidelines and to learn more about preparing a bid document.
