LCACE Information Event on AHRC Beyond Text Programme
Thursday 26th February 10.00am – 2.00pm (including lunch)
Birkbeck, University of London, Malet Street, Bloomsbury London WC1E 7HX

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) programme “Beyond Text: Performances, Sounds, Images, Objects” is hosting an informal workshop for the theatre community in partnership with the London Centre for Arts and Cultural Exchange (LCACE) and ITC.  The workshop will be led by Professor Evelyn Welch, the programme director.

The aim of the workshop is to explain generally how the theatre sector can participate in academic research, to look at some of the specifics of the Beyond Text Programme and to discuss some of the ways that artists and academics can work in partnership.

The event will also include a practical session on expressing your ideas in an application to an academic programme.  In previous events, this has proved a very fruitful exercise where there has been a good mix of practitioners and academics.

For further details of the event, and to reserve a place please go to the LCACE website

This is a free event, but places are limited and advanced booking is essential.

To reserve a place please book online at

Continuing Professional Development and Short Courses at UCL School of
Library, Archive and Information Studies (SLAIS)

Many of the modules from the taught programmes offered by UCL's School
of Library, Archive and Information Studies  for its professional
masters programmes can be taken as independent short courses for
continuing professional development. There are no formal requirements
for admission, although education to GCE A Level or first degree
standard is generally expected, and some technical modules have specific
pre-requisites (e.g. for Server technologies and programming some
programming experience, preferably Introduction to programming and
scripting, is required).

Modules run for one term and attandence is required for half a day each
week. It is also possible to take short course modules for credit for
transfer to certificate, diploma and full masters awards.
All the information applicants need is at:


We are currently considering applications for modules running in the
second term (Jan-March 2009).

Please note that from January 2009 we will be changing our name to UCL
Department of Information Studies.

*FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS AND POSTERS, Computer Applications to Archaeology
2009 (CAA)*

*www.caa2009.org  http://www.caa2009.org/ *

*Deadline: December 19, 2008*

*Submit at: http://www.caa2009.org/SubmitProposal.cfm

The 37th annual CAA conference will be held from 22 to 26 March 2009 in
Williamsburg, Virginia (USA) and will bring together students,
researchers, heritage managers and other experts to present, examine and
discuss current theory and application of quantitative methods and
information technologies in Archaeology (www.caa2009.org
 http://www.caa2009.org/ ). The CAA conference has established a strong
tradition of international, open communication and exchange that crosses
boundaries between archaeologists and colleagues working in quantitative
fields such as mathematics and computer science. The conference also
regularly attracts students, researchers and practitioners from
geography, geomatics, life sciences, physical anthropology, museology,
field archaeology and others. In 2009, CAA will co-meet with ECAI, the
Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative (www.ecai.org/
 http://www.ecai.org/ ). It will also offer optional short, introductory
courses in the use of equipment (such as 3D scanners), hardware, and
software typically used by digital archaeologists today.

This Call for Papers invites the submission of abstracts for papers and
posters to be presented at the conference. The Scientific Committee
(www.caa2009.org/ TopCommittees.cfm
 http://www.caa2009.org/%20TopCommittees.cfm ) has accepted a wide range
of proposals for thematic sessions, workshops, and round tables. These
have been listed on the conference website at www.caa2009.org
 http://www.caa2009.org/ . Posters can also be presented at the
conference in a special area set aside for this purpose.

Please submit your abstract for a paper or poster online at:
www.caa2009.org/PapersCall.cfm  http://www.caa2009.org/PapersCall.cfm .
An abstract should be between 300 and 500 words in length, should
clearly indicate the reason why your work is original and significant,
should contain a short bibliography (if there is important earlier work
to cite), should indicate the session(s) in which the paper could
appropriately be presented, and should also state whether you are
requesting 15 minutes for a short presentation or 25 minutes for a long
presentation. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to assign a
paper to the session that appears most appropriate, which may sometimes
not correspond to the session to which the author(s) applied. The
abstracts for posters should provide the same information, except for
indication of an appropriate session and length.

*The deadline for submission of all abstracts is December 19, 2008*. You
will be notified by January 15, 2009 about the decision of the
Scientific Committee.

It is recommended that travelers needing a visa to visit the United
States apply at least 90 days before arriving, or by approximately the
fourth week of December. The Scientific Committee will try to expedite
decisions on abstract submissions of attendees needing a visa so that
they will know whether their abstract has been accepted prior to
beginning the visa process. If you need a visa and submit your abstract
by December 19, 2008, the Scientific Committee will make every effort to
notify you of its decision by December 22, 2008.
