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=
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 (www.methodsnetwork.ac.uk).

For further information about submitting a proposal contact Hazel Gardiner
