e-Infrastructure for Research

Workshop: e-Information Infrastructures for Arts and Humanities Research: UK Needs and European Perspectives
London, 14 June 2007

"e-Information Infrastructures" include all kinds of digital content resource, and the infrastructure that underpins them. This joint workshop is currently being organised by the Research Information Network and the AHRC ICT Programme. The purpose of the event is to share and develop thinking on what e-Information Infrastructures should look like for the purposes of Arts and Humanities research, at a UK and at a European level; to determine what steps are being taken, and what might be done in the future. It will thus help to articulate part of the broader e-Infrastructure agenda, following on from the recent Office for Science and Innovation (OSI) report, Developing the UKs e-Infrastructure for Science and Innovation.

The workshop will provide an opportunity for four ICT Strategy Projects that have gathered information and developed ideas about different aspects of the e-Infrastructure for Arts and Humanities Research to present their work:

Professor David Bates Peer Review and Evaluation of Digital Resources for the Arts and Humanities University of London
Professor Mark Greengrass RePAH: Research in Portals in the Arts and Humanities University of Sheffield
Dr Lesly Huxley Gathering Evidence: Current ICT Use and Future Needs for Arts and Humanities Research/td> University of Bristol
Dr Claire Warwick LAIRAH: Log Analysis of Internet Resources in the Arts and Humanities University College London
