ITT: Workshops and Seminars - Achievements & Challenges in Digitisation & e-Content
The JISC invites proposals for workshops to discuss current issues related to e-content and digitisation. Proposals for workshops may look at:
- particular areas of technology (e.g. optical character recognition, 3D digitisation, visualisation);
- the relationship with digital content and a specific subject area (e.g. the availability and usefulness of digital resources for those studying the history of the performing arts, or subject areas deemed strategically important or vulnerable by the government);
- issues relating to content that falls under broader headings (e.g. mathematical journals, parliamentary records, medieval manuscripts, historic maps);
- other areas related to digitisation.
Total funding of up to £8,000 (including VAT, travel and subsistence) is available for each workshop and it is anticipated that 11-15 workshops will be funded. Workshops should take place between June and September 2009.
The deadline for proposals is 12 noon BST on Friday 8th May 2009.
