On January 7, 2016, during the annual meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) in San Francisco, the AIA will present Open Context with the 2016 Award for Outstanding Work in Digital Archaeology. Open Context, the open access data publishing service developed by the Alexandria Archive Institute, is entering its tenth year online, with more than one million resources contributed by researchers worldwide.

The award recognizes “projects, groups, and individuals that deploy digital technology in innovative ways in the realms of excavation, research, teaching, publishing, or outreach” with a goal of “recognizing the value of digital scholarship and encouraging its practice.” Past recipients of the award include the Ancient World Online (2015) and Fasti Online (2014).
