Projects cover a wide range of subjects in both the arts and the humanities, from dance and music to museum studies, archaeology, classics and Byzantine history, and a wide range of e-Science technologies.


A central feature of all is the substantial involvement of computer scientists alongside arts and humanities researchers.
