THE DANIEL LANGLOIS FOUNDATION: REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS: RESEARCHER IN RESIDENCE GRANTS

Montreal, October 10, 2006 - The Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science and Technology is extending its call for research proposals for researcher in residence grants to November 15, 2006.

Through its Researcher in Residence Grant program, the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology supports projects that not only draw on the documentation collection and archival fonds of the Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D), but that also explore new ways of disseminating and interacting with documentary content. More specifically, the program aims to promote research projects that take an innovative approach to disseminating research results via data communications. 

Recent revisions to this program have led to the introduction of two research components that can be used as focal points for projects: CR+D documentary collections and archival fonds and Information architecture and online publishing.

Component 1 - CR+D documentary collections and archival fonds
The research project must make use of the CR+D's documentation collections and archives. A profile of the Foundation's collections is available under the "Fonds and Collections" heading in the "Centre for Research and Documentation" section of the Foundation's Web site at:
http://www.fondation-langlois.org/flash/e/index.php?NumPage=147 

Component 2 - Information architecture and electronic publishing project
Research projects accepted in this component must propose a highly original concept for information architecture and/or electronic publishing. The Foundation is interested in research into content organization systems, navigation and user interface systems, semantics research systems, and metadata development. It is also interested in projects on data and system emulation or migration and research into database access modes and interoperability. 

For 2007, the Daniel Langlois Foundation is offering two research grants. The proposals selected will allow researchers to work at the Foundation's Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D), where they will have access to computer and audiovisual equipment as well as to the Foundation's database, its entire document collection, digital documents and a high speed Internet connection (T1). The CR+D also offers reference and research support services as well as technical resources in accordance with the project in question. 

For more information on this grant program and on how to submit a proposal online, we invite you to consult the program guidelines under "Funding Programs" / "Program for Researchers in Residence" on the Foundation's Web site at:
