The Journal of Computer Applications in Archaeology (JCAA) is a peer-reviewed, open access, electronic journal, featuring papers in all the disciplines related to digital archaeology, including but not limited to 3D modelling, spatial analysis, remote sensing, geophysics, field recording techniques, databases, semantic web, statistics, data mining, simulation modelling, network analysis and digital reconstructions of the past. The journal welcomes papers reporting original research, as well as papers that critically reflect on the use and impact of digital technologies in archaeology.
50 years of computational archaeology
JCAA is inviting proposals for a special issue to mark the 50th anniversary of the CAA. The issue will be structured around two collections of papers:
- The first collection will focus on understanding the role of the CAA community in the development of methods and applications, and will include contributions which review the history of practice.
- The emphasis of the second collection of papers is outward facing, exploring the impact of work related to the CAA community on wider archaeological practice and on interdisciplinary work, where it intersects with data science, digital humanities and computer science.
Please, send us a prospective title and a tentative abstract (around 500 words) for your contribution before May 1st. Accepted proposals will be negotiated with editors to give coherence to the final volumes.

New Managing Editor
As of 1 January 2022, Arianna Traviglia has stepped down as managing editor of the journal. Since its inception in 2017, Arianna has been a driving force in setting up, running and promoting the journal, also acting as a liaison between CAA International and the journal. We are sad to see her go, but have found a worthy successor in César González-Pérez. He is staff scientist at Incipit-CSIC in Santiago de Compostela, and has published widely on data models in cultural heritage, focusing on conceptual modelling and semantics. He also has extensive experience in editing and reviewing scientific publications, and we are therefore very much looking forward to working with him. At CAA, Iza Romanowska was elected as new Publication Officer and will be our liaison from August 2022 onwards.
