         Subject: Call for Proposals for Actions within Social Sciences and
Humanities

The European Science Foundation Standing Committee for the Humanities is
pleased to announe the new Call for Proposals for COST Actions within
Social Sciences and Humanities.

Cost is an intergovernmental European framework for international
co-operation between nationally-founded research activities created in
1971, governed by the COST CSO and supported by the EU Framework Programme.
COST supports coordination of scientific networks (Actions) and
dissemination of their results, thus enabling scientists to collaborate in
a wide spectrum of activities in research and technology.

COST Actions cover basic and pre-competitive research as well as activities
of public utility. Scientists themselves, following the "bottom-up"
principle, propose new Actions making COST an attractive forum for new and
emerging topics.

The COST Office, operated by the European Science Foundation (ESF),
provides scientific and administrative support to the COST Technical
Committees and COST Actions. The Secretariat General to the Council of the
European Union provides the secretariat to the CSO.
More information is available at the following address:
http://cost.cordis.lu/

The COST Technical Committee of Social Sciences and Humanities invites
proposals for new Actions (scientific networks). The Actions may fall
within, or span, any of the disciplines of Social Sciences and Humanities.
Any expert of the 34 COST countries
(http://cost.cordis.lu/src/whatiscost.cfm)
or the cooperating country (Israel) may submit a proposal, on behalf of a
group of researchers.
Closing date for proposals is 1 October 2004. Proposals received after this
date will be retained for later consideration under further calls.
Proposer must submit an abstract (1500-2000) characters) of their proposals
no later than 22 September 2004, including a title and five keywords
characterising the scientific content of the proposal.
More information is available at the following address:

Best regards,
