        Subject: 2012 eHumanities Innovation Award - FINAL 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 notinterested 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 PhD’s within 
the previous 5 years or are still working on the PhD.

 2. After reviewing, the participants with the 5 most interesting

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