Call for papers: Centre for e-Research (CeRch) Seminar Series


This Seminar Series is a wide-ranging programme of events organised every term by CeRch at King's College London.

With viewpoints from many disciplines including the sciences, social sciences and humanities, the series' primary focus is methodological: the seminars will focus on the theory and practice of e-Research, its place in academia and society, and how it can benefit a range of stakeholders.

We are now inviting papers for the Spring term. Please send an abstract of no more than 500 words to Stuart.Dunn at kcl.ac.uk. 

Deadline 15 November 2011.

Dinner will be provided on the evening and accommodation and travel will be reimbursed.

Spring term dates: January 17, 31; February 14, 28; March 13, 27

Seminars are held fortnightly during term time at 6.15pm in the Anatomy Theatre & Museum at King's College London Strand Campus (http://atm.kcl.ac.uk/location) and are followed by drinks.
