Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) is an international organisation bringing together archaeologists, mathematicians, and computer scientists. Its mission is to encourage and facilitate dialogue between these disciplines, to provide an overview of the present state of the discipline, and to stimulate discussion to progress the field. The CAA Constitution, which is the overall governance document, is supplemented by policies that provide more specific details about the organisation’s operations and responsibilities as well as expectations for individuals participating in the CAA community.

CAA’s Executive Steering Committee (ESC), in collaboration with key CAA members, periodically assess the policies to ensure that they reflect the current needs of the organisation and the membership. Major new policies as well as proposed revisions not required by law are voted on by the membership, usually at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), and must be approved by a two-thirds majority to be enacted.
