             Subject: Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Fellows in

    Applications are invited to a Visiting Fellows fund sponsored by the Royal
    Academy of Engineering. The scheme will provide funding to enable an
    academic department in a United Kingdom university to play host to a Senior
    Visiting Fellow from an overseas academic centre of excellence. The
    length of a visit will normally be between two and four weeks.

    The scheme's objective is to promote international relations and networking
    within the academic community on the broad topic of global and/or mobile
    communications, in keeping with the general interests and mission of the
    Vodafone Group Foundation. Whilst it is likely that the Fellowships will
    favour aspects of engineering and technology the assessment panel will also
    give sympathetic consideration to proposals from other disciplinary areas
    within the generality of ICT where a convincing case for support is made.

    There is no reason why Humanities Computing scholars cannot apply -- but
    note, the deadline Monday 31 March. Given the dearth of applications so
    far, and the fact that we have to allocate the funds in the next few weeks,
    I would urge anyone who is eligible and interested to think about it and
    put an application in, as chances are very high....

    Enquiries immediately to the undersigned.
