 Grants for Researchers in Residence: Deadline October 31, 2006
This year, the deadline for submission of research proposals for the Grants for Researchers in Residence Program is October 31, 2006.

A number of changes were recently made to this program, including the introduction of two research components: CR+D documentary collections and archival fonds and Information architecture and online publishing. As in previous years, the Daniel Langlois Foundation will award two research grants for 2007. The proposals selected will allow researchers to work at the Foundation's Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D). Anyone interested in submitting a research proposal is asked to read the new program guidelines.

Please note: an online form is now available on our site and must be used by anyone wishing to apply for this program.

 New CR+D Watch Bulletin
Beginning in September, a new CR+D Watch Bulletin will be accessible on the Foundation's Web site. This bulletin is produced by the Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) team as part of the activities surrounding the identification and processing of numerous documents that pertain to the CR+D's research subjects.

Each month, the CR+D Watch Bulletin will offer a list of newly referenced documents and recent or upcoming events. We hope that you find the bulletin useful and that it helps you discover new documentary resources and key events in the electronic arts domain

The Daniel Langlois Foundation is pleased to announce that the second annual summit of the DOCAM Research Alliance (Documentation and Conservation of the Media Arts Heritage) will be held at the McGill University Schulich School of Music in Montreal on October 26, 2006.

DOCAM is a major multidisciplinary research endeavour initiated by the Daniel Langlois Foundation in collaboration with numerous national and international partners and funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

The second annual summit will provide an opportunity for members of the DOCAM research committees to report on the progress of research into the challenges of preserving and documenting technology-based works of art. Among the guest speakers slated to appear at the summit are Pip Laurenson of the Tate Modern in London, Mona Jimenez from New York University, and Hans Dieter Huber from the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart. The complete summit program will be published in early October.
