The AIA Annual Meeting will again be the location for a workshop on computers in archaeology. This year the workshop, entitled "Computer Technologies for Archaeologists," will take place in the technology showcase area of the book exhibit hall, and it will be presented in two sessions, both at lunch time Ð from noon to 1:30 p.m. The first session, on December 28, will include discussion of database design, electronic publishing, and the Internet. Participants will be Brooke Howenstein and CSA Director Harrison Eiteljorg, II. The second session will be held on the 29th. Susan Lukesh, Neel Smith, and Mr. Eiteljorg will talk about surveying, computer-assisted design software, and geographic information systems.
Since these sessions will be held in the technology showcase area, there will be computers at the ready. In addition, Mr. Eiteljorg will bring the usual overhead projection system for displaying images from portable computers brought by the speakers.
As those who have attended in past years will attest, this is a good opportunity to ask questions of people who are eager to share their experience; so come with questions about those aspects of computer technology that concern you.
