        Subject: Institute for Enabling Geospatial Scholarship

The Scholars' Lab at the University of Virginia Library is now  
accepting applications for an NEH-funded "Institute for Enabling  
Geospatial Scholarship," to be held in Charlottesville, Virginia in  
November 2009 and May 2010.


This program will bring together humanities scholars, software  
developers, and librarians and other cultural heritage professionals  
to discuss and develop geospatial tools, content, methods, policies,  
and infrastructure, in the context of open source and open access.  
Thirty-one leading academics, developers, and higher-ed administrators  
serve on the faculty and advisory board of the Institute.

The National Endowment for the Humanities will support travel, working  
meals, and lodging for 40 attendees as well as Institute faculty  
members. Special funding is available for graduate students. The  
University of Virginia Library will also fund up to 5 short-term  
scholar- and developer-in-residencies at the Scholars' Lab to  
complement the Institute's focus on humanities GIS.

Three four-day Institute tracks are planned:

15-18 November 2009:
Track 1: Stewardship (for library, museum, GIS and digital humanities  
center professionals)
Track 2: Software (for Web developers, designers, systems  
administrators, and information scientists)

25-28 May 2010:
Track 3: Scholarship (for humanities scholars, advanced graduate  
students, and post-docs)

Application DEADLINES are September 1st (for Tracks 1 and 2) and  
December 1st (for Track 3).  Special consideration will be given to  
those who apply as part of an institutional team, as the curriculum is  
designed to foster robust technical and social infrastructure, at a  
local level, for geospatial scholarship in the digital humanities.

Apply to attend at the URL above, and please help distribute this  
message widely!

 22nd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information

ESSLLI 2010, 9-20 August, 2010, University of Copenhagen, Denmark



The European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI) is organized every year by the Association for Logic,
Language and Information (FoLLI, http://www.folli.org) in different sites around Europe. The main focus of ESSLLI is on the interface
between linguistics, logic and computation. ESSLLI offers foundational, introductory and advanced courses, as well as workshops,
covering a wide variety of topics within the three areas of interest: Language and Computation, Language and Logic, and Logic and
Computation. Previous summer schools have been highly successful, attracting up to 500 students from Europe and elsewhere. The
school has developed into an important meeting place and forum for discussion for students and researchers interested in the
interdisciplinary study of Logic, Language and Information.
For more information, visit the FoLLI website, as well as ESSLLI’2009 website: http://esslli2009.labri.fr/.

The ESSLLI 2010 Program Committee invites proposals for foundational, introductory, and advanced courses, and for workshops for the
22nd annual Summer School on important topics of active research in the broad interdisciplinary area connecting logic, linguistics,
computer science, and the cognitive sciences, structured within the 3 traditional ESSLLI streams:

-Language and Computation
-Language and Logic
-Logic and Computation
We also welcome proposals that do not exactly fit one of these categories.

PROPOSAL SUBMISSION: All proposals should be submitted, using a prescribed form that will be available soon on the ESSLLI 2010
website www.hum.ku.dk/esslli2010, through EasyChair on http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esslli2010, not later than

*Linking Archaeological Data*

The Port Networks Project, a joint venture between a wide range of
archaeological institutions, is using innovative computational methods
known as Semantic Web technologies in order to synthesise the large
volume of excavation data available from harbour excavations around the
Mediterranean. This presentation focuses on the human-computer interface.


The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

For more information please contact Gabriel.Bodard at kcl.ac.uk,
