The book exhibit area at the annual meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America (this year in San Diego) will again include a technology exhibit for display of computer technologies appropriate for use by archaeologists and philologists. As last year, there will be computers connected to the Internet available for visitors to use and to test. Various programs for browsing the World Wide Web, downloading files from distant sites, and so on will be installed and running.
The exhibit area will also be the venue for the workshop, "Computer Technologies for Archaeologists," that CSA Director Harrison Eiteljorg, II, will host again this year. Since the exhibit area is to be used, however, the workshop will be split into two lunch-hour sessions, one dealing with CAD, GIS, and surveying and the other dealing with databases, issues surrounding archival data storage, and electronic publication. The two workshops will be held at the lunch hour so that people can come without sacrificing paper sessions. There will be either large monitors or a projection system set up, and ample seating will be provided; so it should be a good place to discuss technological issues of interest to archaeologists.
Dates and schedules will be announced in the next issue of the CSA Newsletter.
