I recently migrated all the content from this blog to my new website!, I’m looking forward to see you there.

Hi all,

I hope you are having a great summer! Just a quick note to say that I’m migrating my blog to my new website. I hope you like it and continue following my research. Don’t hesitate to contact me anytime 🙂

26 Nov

CAA Southampton

CAA2012 Call for Papers

Submissions are requested for the 2012 Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology to be hosted by the Archaeological Computing Research Group in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Southampton.

The main aim of the CAA conference is to bring together researchers, professionals and students with an interest in the field of computer applications and quantitative methods in archaeology. We therefore welcome submission of abstracts in English of up to 500 words that:

–              Describe original, technically excellent, critical, and/or synthetic research

–              Focus on interesting computation and/ or quantitative methods and theories applied in archaeology and related disciplines

You may choose to present your research via a long paper (20 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions and handover), short paper (10 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions and handover), or a poster. You may submit your research to a specific proposed session or to the general session. Poster sessions will run on each day of the conference and posters will be linked in the conference documents and website to the sessions to which they were submitted. Please indicate your preference in your submission.

Provisionally the conference will be divided into six themes:

1.            Data Analysis, Modelling, Management, Integration and Visualisation

2.            Field and Lab Recording

3.            Geospatial technologies

4.            Human Computer Interaction, Multimedia and Museums

5.            Simulating the Past

6.            Theoretical Approaches and Context of Archaeological Computation

The list of proposed sessions is available online:

You should submit your paper via the CAA2012 Open Conference System available online:

The deadline is 11:59pm 30 November 2011. Accepted papers will be announced and conference booking system will open on 21st December 2011. Please note that at least one of the authors of a paper or poster must be registered for and attend the conference.

How to Batch rename multiple files or folders

14 Jan


As you know, to rename lots of files or folders can be a pain so this post is just to share a really nice free software that I found today to rename multiple files or folders. It has been developed by Denis Kozlov and he have also other software that can be of interest to some of you 🙂


Tip about PDF’s

31 Aug

Ok so, for those that do not have Acrobat Professional and need to make comments, amend, snapshot or use any other editing tool for PDF’s I found a really nice software that is free and have basically all the functions that Acrobat professional have. It’s called PDF-XChange viewer.

I hope is as useful for you as it was for me 🙂
