2009 Asia Pacific Human Development Academic Fellowship on Cl

Context and Objective
The human development approach puts people at the centre of development. It recognizes economic drivers for change but goes beyond them to raise issues of enlarging human capabilities and expanding people’s choices. The objective of the Academic Fellowship is to encourage young Ph.D. students from the Asia Pacifific region to analyse critical development issues from a human development perspective, contributing to development theory, applications and policies. Thus, the Fellows are expected to push the frontiers of research on human development while analyzing, through the human development lens, issues directly or indirectly related to human development. The research must focus on a well-defifined aspect of human development under the theme selected

Please see our brochure on “Human Development Fellows” for information on 2005-2008 recipients of Fellowships:
http://www2. undprcc.lk/ about_us/ fellowship. php

Theme – Climate Change and Human Development
Human development is about expanding human potential and enlarging human freedom. Climate change is a human development challenge, as it threatens to erode human freedoms and limit choice and plunge large numbers into poverty and hardship.

Climate change is hampering efforts to deliver the MDG promise as it undermines international efforts to combat poverty and exacerbates already existing inequalities. Those, in turn, can result in an increase in conflict over sharing natural resources. Climate change is in fact an increasingly powerful driver of wider inequalities between and within countries, also between women and men.

Climate change can result in increased frequency of extreme weather events, flooding, storms, drought, increases in sea temperatures, and melting of glaciers, etc., which effect negatively agriculture and health/nutrition. This has negative implications on the livelihood of poor and vulnerable communities who depend largely on agriculture and natural resource management. In particular, women are affected in their roles of food producers and providers, guardians of health, and care givers. Reduced employment opportunities, for example for women working in agricultural fifields, constitute a net loss in income which leads to a loss in savings, making it even harder for households to cope with disasters.

The magnitude of this long term challenge can be assessed considering that an additional 1.8 billion people are expected to face water stress by 2080, with large areas of Central Asia, northern parts of South Asia and northern China facing a grave ecological crisis as a result of glacial retreat and changed rainfall patterns. Up to 330 million people in coastal and low-lying areas are expected to be displaced through flflooding and tropical storm activity. In the Asia Pacific region, in particular, over 70 million people in Bangladesh and 22 million people in Viet Nam could be affected by global warming-related flflooding.

What are the mechanisms through which the ecological impacts of climate change affect the poor? Are there examples of good practices to ensure climate and human security?

Have climate change and other environmental concerns been integrated in development planning in the context of environment protection and sustainable development? What has been the effectiveness of policies introduced? What is a possible agenda to promote human development and climate security? These are some of the questions that could be addressed.

The Fellowship
The UNDP Human Development Academic Fellowship for Asia Pacific carries an award of US$ 10,000. The students will be required to submit to UNDP a copy of their fifinal approved dissertation. In addition, Fellows may be expected to present their work in workshops/seminars and other events arranged by UNDP (travelrelated costs will be covered separately).

The thesis will acknowledge UNDP’s support by saying: “The author acknowledges the financial support received from the UNDP Asia Pacific Human Development Academic Fellowship for the research.”

Open PhD position (4 years, fully funded) in Information Retrieval Lab at Delft University of Technology

Multimedia Information Retrieval Lab at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, offers a PhD position funded by the European Union in the project "PuppyIR - Information Retrieval for Children".

Project Summary

PuppyIR (a new project funded by the EU 7th Framework) will provide an open suite of components that can be used by system designers to tailor IR systems for the specific needs of children. Current Information Retrieval (IR) systems are designed for adults: they return information that is unsuitable for children, present information in lists that children find difficult to manage and make it difficult for children to
ask for information. PuppyIR will develop new interaction paradigms that allow children to express their information needs simply and have results presented in an intuitive way. It will develop Information Services that can summarise content for children, moderate information for children, help children safely build social networks and intelligently aggregate for presentation to children.

More information about the project and its participants can be found at:
http://nirict. 3tu.nl/nirict- projects/ puppy-ir. doc/
More information about Multimedia Information Retrieval Lab:
http://ict.ewi. tudelft.nl/ index.php? option=com_ sections& id=45&Itemid= 109

Role in Project

The PhD student in Delft studies the retrieval models and their implementation to support the interfaces and interaction styles specialized for children's behaviour when accessing information online (developed by other project participants) . The student contributes solutions in the areas of multimodal presentation technology, text and multimedia content mining, and natural language processing of children's
texts. Specifically, the Delft contribution concentrates on a query assistance module based on entity retrieval and expert finding approaches, social network analysis, and, moderated discovery of information guided by opinion detection. Research prototypes are made to extend and exploit the PuppyIR open source framework. The PhD student also participates in the tasks to identify what evaluation measures make
sense for evaluation of search tools for children, and contributes to the development of test collections for the system-oriented evaluation of search algorithms for children.

Requirements for the PhD student

* Degree in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Computational Linguistics or Cognitive Science
* Strong technical background in Machine Learning and/or Information Retrieval
* Excellent programming skills
* Good command of the English language
* Sincere interest in learning about how to adapt search technologies to the cognitive abilities of children

Appointment and Salary

The full-time appointment is temporary for four years. The starting salary is ˆ 2042 gross per month increasing to a maximum of ˆ 2612 gross per month in the fourth year. Moreover, an 8% bonus share (holiday supplement) and an end-of-year bonus of 8.3% is provided annually, as well as excellent secondary benefits. The preferable starting date is 1st September 2009.

How to apply

Applications should be sent by e-mail and include the following documents (in English):
* Curriculum Vitae (incl. publication list and a statement of research qualifications)
* copy of university degree
* copy of transcript listing all university marks
* a cover letter explaining the motivation for doing research in IR, with details of research interests/experienc e, background, programming skills and the knowledge of data mining/retrieval technologies
* two letters of reference

Applications should be sent to Pavel Serdyukov (p.serdyukov AT tudelft DOT nl) and Prof.dr.ir. Arjen P. de Vries (arjen.de.vries AT cwi DOT nl). In the ideal case, those candidates that will be around Boston, US, from 18 to 25 July (during the SIGIR conference), might be interviewed immediately. Please, specify if that is possible in your application.

15 PhD positions at the GATEWAY Project

New Marie Curie Initial Training Network
GATEWAYS *

Multi-level assessment of ocean-climate dynamics: a gateway to
interdisciplinary training and analysis

GATEWAYS invites applications* * for

15 Early-Stage Researchers (ESR) at the PhD student level
The GATEWAYS project conducts interdisciplinary climate change research on the ocean circulation and its linking with climate processes on regional to global scales. The project combines modern observations, climate (ocean, atmosphere) modelling and marine palaeoclimatology. GATEWAYS sets out to test the sensitivity of the ocean circulation to changing climates of the past. It will assess the dynamics of the ocean circulation as a function of climate change; the influence of ocean circulation on continental climate; and the impact of inter-ocean water transports on the basin- wide overturning circulation.

The project provides training in laboratory-based analytical protocols and instrumentation, data processing and management, and numerical climate modelling. Complementary skills training focuses on project management and communication techniques. Trainees receive an integrated interdisciplinary grounding in the marine and climate sciences; proficiency in analytical procedures, climate modelling and statistical data processing; managerial skills to design and carry out research in an efficient and pragmatic way.

An information package providing project overview and application information is available at the Institut de CieÌncia i Tecnologia Ambientals of the Universitat AutoÌnoma de Barcelona at

www.uab.cat/ icta

* GATEWAYS is sponsored by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Community
** Deadline for applications is 30 September 2009

CfA: Paths of Remembrance, Geschichtswerkstatt Europa 2010

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'm glad to send you the current Call for Applications of Geschichtswerkstatt Europa. Should you have any questions, I and my team will be glad to answer these via phone or e-mail. Further information can be found via www.geschichtswerkstatt-europa.org.

Yours sincerely,
Felix Ackermann

Call for applications: Grants for international projects on European remembrance
Period of grant: April to October 2010
Closing date for sending project outlines: October 26th 2009

Geschichtswerkstatt Europa is a programme set up by the Foundation "Remembrance,
Responsibility, Future" (EVZ), which supports international projects addressing the issue of the culture of memory and remembrance in Europe. Its aim is to strengthen
dialogue between young Europeans comparing the differences and similarities in historical perceptions of the collective experience of oppression in the 20th century at a national, regional and local level.

The Institute for Applied History is responsible for project support in cooperation with the European University Viadrina. The Institute provides advice and support on
project ideas, from sketching the initial outline to completing the application and accounting procedures. It will also organise a meeting in Frankfurt (Oder) in spring 2010, where project content and method can be discussed and individual participants can network.

Call for applications 2010: Paths of Remembrance

Twentieth-century Europe has been marked by dictatorship, war, forced labour and genocide. This has resulted in not only millions of deaths but also enforced
migration, which has become stored in the collective memory as deportation, flight, evacuation, displacement, emigration, repatriation, dispossession, etc.

The challenge facing survivors and their descendants is that memories of these acts of violence are often connected with places very far removed from their current
lives. The geographical distance is intensified by the cultural distance which is created as those places are inhabited nowadays by different people whose memories relate to other, equally distant places.

With the fall of the Iron Curtain it has become increasingly possible to return to these places, to visit and study them. The connection between the past and the present, indeed, between one place and another, has been established since then by way of journeys, narration, symbols and rituals. The Paths of Remembrance thus taken help to recollect routes of forced migration and to reduce the distance that eventuated from it.

In the programme year 2010, within the framework of Geschichtswerkstatt Europa, the Foundation EVZ will be funding international teams as they collaborate on analysis of one or more Paths of Remembrance of particular relevance today. This means that the subject of project work needs to have the potential to create understanding, reconciliation and/or conflict for the societies concerned.

The project work can involve field work related to tracing routes, memorial sites, museums and memorials, as well as analysis and compilation of oral and written
statements. In addition to empirical study, the projects of Geschichtswerkstatt Europa should establish the wider public awareness needed to encourage dialogue over European cultures of remembrance.

Funding

Geschichtswerkstatt Europa funds international projects involving students, graduates, young academics, journalists, artists and other members of civilian society between 18 and 35 years of age, who collectively set out to retrace a Path of Remembrance between April and October 2010.

The projects will be planned and carried out by the applicant together with a partner from another Central or East European country or Israel. Presentation and
discussion of the project should aim to reach a wider audience. It is expected that the project will result in a joint contribution to the Geschichtswerkstatt Europa internet platform in the form of text, photos or video.

Projects can be financed in one of two ways: Institutions planning a project with more than 4 participants are eligible for grants for travel, accommodation, materials and communication up to a maximum of 15,000 Euros. International teams of between 2 and 4 people without any attachment to an institution can claim a maximum of 2,500 Euros per person to carry out the entire project.

Outlines

Each project team is required to submit a plan which answers the following questions:

1. Which international team will be carrying out the project?
2. What is the key issue via which the Paths of Memory are to be retraced?
3. What steps have been planned for implementing this issue? What methods will be used?
4. What form will communication between the project partners take?
5. In what form will the project results be compiled and presented to a wider audience?
6. What costs will be involved in carrying out the project?

A project outline can be submitted between September 1st and October 26st, 2009, via the online form at Geschichtswerkstatt Europa. In November 2009, a jury of
experts will decide on the projects that will be invited to apply for funding.

Geschichtswerkstatt Europa is a programme of the foundation „Remembrance, Responsibility and Future“ addressing the issue of European remembrance. The Institute for Applied History coordinates the funding of projects in cooperation with the European University Viadrina. The International Forum is organised by the Global and European Studies Institute at the University of Leipzig.

NOTE FOR CONTRIBUTORS

Peer-review

The ARA is a peer-reviewed journal. Two anonymous referees will evaluate the manuscripts. As suggested by referees, manuscripts will be: a) accepted for publication with no further revisions, b) returned for further revisions or c) rejected, usually within 60 days from submission. Authors will be promptly informed of the status of the manuscript, along with reviewers´ argumentation. A third reviewer will be involved in the process in the eventuality that the first two are in complete disagreement regarding the publication of the manuscript. The editors reserve the right to reject or to return for revision any manuscript not meeting the minimal requirements for the peer-review process (i.e. non-standard format, lack of academic style, major flaws in design or analysis, unclear methodology, etc.), or for ethical concerns.

Manuscript content and style

The ARA accepts research and review manuscripts, as well as book reviews on relevant topics. Typically, research manuscripts will consist in ABSTRACT, brief INTRODUCTION, METHODS, RESULTS, DISCUSSION and/or CONCLUSIONS, brief Acknowledgements, and REFERENCES sections, followed by figures and/or tables (the later accompanied by short explanatory notes). Generally, research manuscripts should be up to 10 pages long, all sections inclusive. Review manuscripts, up to 20 pages long, should consist in ABSTRACT, brief INTRODUCTION, main DISCUSSION (with subsections as required by the subject matter), brief Acknowledgements, and REFERENCES sections, followed by figures and/or tables (with explanatory notes). Book reviews, up to one page, consist in a section titled BOOK REVIEW, identifying the book title, authors/editors, and edition at the beginning of the text, and, if necessary, a REFERENCES section. The content of the manuscript must not have been previously
published in other academic journals, books, or chapters. However, preliminary data presented at scientific meetings may be included if they are part of a significantly expanded analysis within the manuscript submitted to ARA.

Page and font format

Each page should be set-up 3 cm from top and from left, and 1.5 cm from bottom and from right margins, counted throughout, and written in Times New Roman font. The title of the manuscript must be in 14-sized bold font, centered and capitalized. Authors´ names must be in 12-sized font, centered and capitalized. The abstract must consist in 10 single-spaced rows, 9-sized font, followed by up to 5 keywords in the 11th line. The rest of the manuscript must be single-spaced, in 12-sized justified fond. Titles of figures will be centered. At the bottom of the first page the following note should be added (in font 10, capitals and the number of volume with bold):
ANN. ROUM. ANTHROPOL. 46, P... ,(?) BUCHAREST, 2009
Authors in the reference section should be written with font 12, title of paper with italics, and the number of the volume with bold. The manuscript ends with a paragraph including: the date of submission, the authors´ institutions, e-mail address of the corresponding author, and e-mail addresses of each co-author.

Reference style

References should be appearing in text with the name of author, year of publication and, in the case of books, chapters or references over 50 pages long, the page in brackets, i.e. (Popescu 1999: 43). When one author published more articles in the same year he/she should be quoted as (Popescu 2001a: 88; 2001b: 67). When there are three or more authors the format becomes (Popescu et al. 2002: 56). All references must be complete and accurate. Internet addresses will be fully cited when mentioned for the first time within the text (e.g. www.britannica. com) and briefly referred to thereafter (e.g. Britannica). Similarly, institutional or organizational works without authors will be fully cited when first mentioned in the text (e.g. Guidelines for Conduct of Research Involving Human Subjects at NIH), and shortened thereafter (e.g. NIH Guidelines). The software will be abbreviated (e.g. SPSS) if widely known. Examples of reference styles:
a) For books:
Olivier, G. 1960, Practique anthropologique, Paris, Vigot Frere.
b) For book chapters:
Hill, K., Hurtado, A.M. 1996. The Ache, in: Hill and Hurtado, Ache life history. The ecology and demography of a foraging people, New York: Aldine de Gruyter, p. 41 - 81.
c) For journal articles:
Bell B., Budowle B., Martinez Jarreta B., Casalod Y., Abecia E., Castellano M. 1997, Distribution of types for six PCR - based loci in central Pyrennee and Teruel (Spain), Journal of Forensic Science, 42 (3), p. 510 - 513.
d) For software, internet addresses and non-specified authors:
---, 2001, SPSS for Windows, Rel. 11.0.1. Chicago: SPSS Inc.
---, Britannica, http://www.britanni ca.com
---, 1994, Guidelines for Conduct of Research Involving Human Subjects at NIH

Illustrations

Photos and graphics will be sent on separate pages with the text centered and 12-sized font. Please supply original photos because copies from the published papers will not be accepted.

Submission format

All materials must be submitted together, in a single, editable electronic format file, compatible with MS Word, Open Office or similar software capable of bold, italics and other font formats, and supporting integration of tables and figures (i.e. with extensions "doc", "odt", "rtf"). Tables must be included in the main document, not as separate spreadsheets. Pictures and graphs must be embedded in the document, either as lossless TIF or high quality JPG, all black and white. Graphs depicting measurable data must be embedded as independent figures (i.e. disconnected from the data tables of formulas). All internet and e-mail addresses must be dissociated from the HTML format (i.e. text only).
The editors will make reasonable efforts to help with the process of document formatting. When electronic submission is difficult, the editors will accept materials sent in printed format, as long as they follow the journal submission standards, and with the note that the review process may take longer.

Acknowledgements and disclosures

The authors must disclose any conflicts of interest regarding the published material and acknowledge granting agencies and people that contributed to the research and writing process. The editors will contact each author regarding the submitted manuscript.

Ethics and responsibilities

L´ANNUAIRE ROUMAIN D´ANTHROPOLOGIE, their editors, and the publishing house do not assume and should not be held liable for the published content of the manuscript.

All studies using human subjects must abide by the ethics of research conduct and informed consent as specified in the Helsinki Declaration on Protecting Human Subjects and/or NIH Guidelines for Conduct of Research Involving Human Subjects, and explicitly acknowledge their usage within the manuscript. Photos or materials identifying or linked to specific human subjects or groups must provide statements that their publication is not of ethical concern, and will not directly or indirectly affect human subjects,
either individually or as a collectivity. Failure to comply with the ethical conditions stated above represents reason for automatic rejection of the manuscript.
