I won’t be able to attend the SAA (Society of American Archaeologists) this year but there are more interesting panels there for digital archaeology than usual.

The Digital Data Interest Group Electronic Symposium is titled From the Ground up: Best Practices for Balancing Usability with Theoretical Utility in Archaeological Databases. The link above takes you to abstracts of their papers.

Josh Wells, the author of the page mentioned above, also has a list of other items of interest to members of the DDIG group at the Alexandria Archive blog.

tDAR also has a news item listing the various ways that they are participating at the SAAs.

Colleen Morgan of Middle Savagery is running a Blogging Archaeology panel and the advanced comments from other bloggers has generated much discussion.
