The Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations and Archaeology Centre of the University of Toronto warmly invites students and faculty to attend our upcoming Symposium on Archaeological Data Analysis and Cross-Project Collaboration (Claude T. Bissell Building 205, March 27-28). Sessions will cover everything from computational approaches to reconstructing ancient environments to the rise of the Islamic State in Syria and its implications for the region’s cultural, archaeological, and architectural heritage.
Organized by the Computational Research on the Ancient Near East (CRANE) Project, this interdisciplinary symposium will be of interest to researchers in many fields, including anthropology, geography, history, archaeobotany, geology, museology, computer science, forensic science, information science, and the digital humanities. We welcome the participation of anyone interested in new techniques in spatial, geographical, chronological, or anthropological data visualization. All sessions are free and open to the public.
Join us to explore the role of Big Data in modern archaeology. Learn more about the current crisis in the Middle East. Meet new colleagues and potential collaborators. For more information, please see the attached program or visit http://www.crane.utoronto.ca/news-and-events.h
