By SSI Fellow Emma Karoune. The Computational Application and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) International Conference is an annual event that brings together archaeologists, mathematicians and computer scientists. There are presentations, posters and workshops on a wide range of topics such as data acquisition and recording, conceptual modelling, data analysis, data management, digital 3D reconstruction, geophysics and GIS - all with an archaeology focus.
Support needed for Research Software sustainability in the Galleries/Libraries/Archives/Museums (GLAM) sector.
There are still many academic disciplines that are on the periphery of activities related to open and sustainable research. Archaeology is making some steps in this direction but there is still a long way to go. As part of her SSI Fellowship, Emma Karoune is tackling this skills gap by organising Open Science Skills Workshops.
How can we help researchers to work in a reproducible way? This blog post documents a workshop held for researchers in Durham University’s Archaeology Department, which aimed to help them make steps towards using software sustainably and working reproducibly.
SSI Fellow Emma Karoune discusses her journey in learning to code.
The first nine Fellows have been selected for the ELIXIR-UK FAIR data stewardship training Fellowship 2021, including 2021 SSI Fellow Emma Karoune!
Emma Karoune, Maria Nanton and Marta Mangiarulo discuss ways to make research outputs accessible to wider audiences.
Alex Clarke, Jez Cope, Dave Horsfall, Emma Karoune, Alice Minotto and Martin O’Reilly look at how working life has been affected by the pandemic and considerations for employers going forward.

We think research reproducibility is super important! Reproducible research is necessary to ensure scientific outputs can be trusted and built upon in future work. An important aspect of reproducible research is computational reproducibility. Binder is a great tool to help you do this easily. Here we offer some top tips so you can make the most out of Binder.
