CSDH/SCHN Outstanding Achievement Award for Computing in the Arts and Humanities

The CSDH/SDCH Outstanding Achievement Award for Computing in the Arts and Humanities acknowledges a Canadian researcher or a researcher at a Canadian institution who has made a significant contribution, over an extended career, to computing in the arts and humanities, whether theoretical, applied, or in the area of community building.  The recipient will be invited to accept the award and to address the society in a plenary session of the annual conference at Congress, which will be held in Ottawa in the spring of 2015.

This award is generally given to someone who has made a substantial and prolonged contribution to the community, typically a senior researcher. We have awarded it to teams. We have awarded it posthumously in recognition of a lifetime contribution. We also recognize people who have served the community in a service capacity and therefore may not have a faculty position. For a list of previous recipients, see http://csdh-schn.org/activities-activites/outstanding-awards-prix/

Nominations of up to 500 words must be submitted by October 31, 2014. Only current current members of CSDH/SCHN are eligible to submit nominations. Nominations must be sent by email to the chair of the CSDH/SCHN Awards Committee (dean.irvine at dal.ca<mailto:dean.irvine at dal.ca>).

The Awards committee will compile a short list, confirm with nominees whether they are willing to be considered, and request the submission of supporting material (CV, letters of support, access to contributions or projects if not readily accessible) by December 15, 2014. Adjudication of the  award will be conducted by the CSDH/SDCH Awards Committee (Dean Irvine, Susan Brown, Juan Luis Suarez, Kevin Kee, and Janelle Jenstad), who may consult the CSDH/SCHN Executive or external members of the community for assistance in evaluating applications. Selection will be made by the end of December 2014. An announcement will be made in spring 2014, along with the release of the CSDH/SCHN conference program for Congress 2015.
