Subject: 2012 eHumanities Innovation Award - Call for Proposal Abstracts
The eHumanities Innovation Award recognizes emerging researchers who have
developed new automated methods for the analysis of Humanities content.
We particularly look for research that involves a deep understanding of
issues from both the Humanities and from the Information Sciences.
Individual researchers may thus be primarily centered in the Humanities
or in the Information Sciences but we also invite work that involves
collaboration across these boundaries.
Your proposal should clarify the following points:
* How does your methodology/technique work? Explain and discuss here
in detail not only the technique you propose, but also the
distinguishing features of your approach.
* Which benefits does your method provide for the humanities? Please
explain in detail how your method is used in any field of the
humanities? Do not forget to provide good examples.
* What are the next steps for your research process?
We are not interested in a combination of digital data with previously
available tools or visualization techniques.
Who can apply?
This award focuses on researchers who have received their PhDâs within
the previous 5 years or are still working on the PhD.
1. Send a proposal abstract until July, 31st, 2012.
2. After reviewing, the participants with the 5 most interesting

3. Finally, the winner and two notable mentions will be announced by

The winner will receive a 1000 Euro award and will be invited to the
