There will be two computer workshops at the AIA meetings this year. CSA Director Harrison Eiteljorg, II, will host one, as he has in recent years. Mr. Eiteljorg's workshop will be held during the noon hour in the Technology Showcase, which will be located in the book exhibit area.
The workshop will be only an hour and a half in length; as a result, the foci will be more limited this year. There was intense interest in electronic publishing last year; so that will be one of the topics discussed this year. In addition, there will be discussion of CAD and surveying with a total station, with the major emphasis being on use of those technologies in the field. Of course, there will be time for questions and open discussion as well.
The other workshop will be sponsored by the AIA's Committee on Computer Applications and Electronic Data. The members of the committee want to provide an opportunity for scholars to show and discuss their uses of computers in archaeology; so the space and time for such demonstrations have been reserved. Requests for participants have been placed on the Internet, and readers of this article who would like to participate in this workshop should write to Dr. Susan Lukesh, Chair of the Committee on Computer Applications and Electronic Data, Office of the Provost, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY 11550 (firstname.lastname@example.org). This workshop will also be held in the Technology Showcase during the noon hour.
