1 st call for papers
Université of Bourgogne, Dijon, 22-25 June 2008
The ArchaeDyn programme “Spatial dynamics of settlement patterns and natural resources: towards an integrated analysis over a long term, from Prehistory to the Middle Ages”, of the Concerted Incentive Action “Spaces and Territories” (Ministry of Research and Technology, France), is organizing a closing colloquium on the campus of the University of Bourgogne in Dijon (France, Côte-d’Or) from 22 to 25 June 2008, with the participation of the Spatial Information and Archaeology Network, technical platform of the CNRS, and the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Claude Nicolas Ledoux (UMS 2913 CNRS-University of Franche-Comté) and Patrimoines, Espaces, Mutations (UMS 2739 CNRS-University of Bourgogne).
The colloquium will be organized into several thematic sessions which correspond to the work-groups of the ArchaeDyn programme:
1. “Catchment areas, terroirs and community lands”
2. “Settlement patterns, networks and territories”
3. “Diffusion of raw materials and manufactured objects”
4. “Methods and tools of spatial analysis” as applied to the aforementioned set of themes.
Each session will include a communication
by a member of the ArchaeDyn group
by two guest researchers
by two researchers whose candidacy has been selected by the Scientific Committee of the colloquium
5. A specific poster session will also be organized if required by the number of communications in this format. Eventually, it will be possible to integrate the presentation of a poster in relation to one of the structuring themes of the programme of the colloquium during the corresponding session.
6. The colloquium will conclude with an open synthetic session including a general assessment of the triennial ArchaeDyn programme.
The colloquium has been designed to host two foreign researchers per session: the speakers are asked to deliver their communications in English or, at least to present their written communication supports in English (Power Point slides, posters, leaflets, etc.).
The communications will be limited to 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes for questions/answers, with the exception of poster presentations which will be limited to 2 minutes (2 slides) during the plenary sessions, followed by a more detailed presentation of the poster. Effectively, the emphasis will be on discussion and exchanges between the speakers and the audience.
The proceedings of the colloquium will be published on-line by a periodical or a specialized site.The Scientific Committee (currently being formed):
Olivier Barge, Graeme Barker, Frédérique Bertoncello, John Bintliff, Patrice Brun, François Favory, Estelle Gauthier, Hans Kamermans, Gary Lock, Claude Mordant, Predrag Novakovic, Laure Nuninger, Kristof Ostir, Axel Posluschny, Xavier Rodier, Laure Saligny, Lena Sanders, François-Pierre Tourneux , Frédéric Trément, Sander van der Leeuw, Martijn van Leusen, Philip Verhagen, Olivier Weller, Thomas Whitley, Elisabeth Zadora-Rio, Andreas Zimmerman.
