Apply for Funding from the AHRC ICT Methods Network -- Deadline 31 December=

The AHRC ICT Methods Network invites the arts and
humanities Higher Education community in the UK
to submit proposals for Methods Network
activities. Activities may include workshops,
seminars, focused workgroups, postgraduate training events and publications.

The Methods Network is keen to support both
single and cross-disciplinary proposals and those
that encourage new collaborative frameworks
between technical specialists and arts and
humanities scholars. The primary emphasis is on
the use and reuse of digital resources.

Proposals for hybrid activities such as
workshop/seminar/workgroup combinations are also
welcomed, as are proposals for any other activity
which falls within the Methods Network remit to
support and promote the uses of advanced ICT methods in academic research.

Funding of up to =A35000 is available for workshops
and hybrid activities. Workshops provide
training in advanced ICT methods for community
members within academic institutions. They engage
with issues such as: formal methods in analysis
of source data and the creation of technical
models; working with multiple technologies; and
other matters of vital practical interest to the community.

Funding of up to =A32000 is available for
seminars. These may concentrate on
highly-defined topics of interest and also
problem areas within the community or may have a more general focus.

For information on eligibility and how to apply
for funding see the Methods Network website

For further information about submitting a
proposal contact Hazel Gardiner
