Let me draw your attention to the following information about grant deadlines and positions. Also, let me use this opportunity to remind you about the upcoming CARMEN meetings, the first to take place next week at the IMC Leeds, Wed 13 July, 13.15-14.00 (session 1190) under the title CARMEN : Successes, Plans, and Opportunities - An Open Round Table Discussion (Bodington Senior Common Room). The second is our Annual CARMEN Meeting on September 9-11, 2011 (Madrid, Segovia), of which you have already been informed in the previous Circulars. Please, note that the deadline for bursary applications to attend the Annual CARMEN Meeting is the end of July, and that early booking of hotels is recommended. Also, the call for projects to be presented at the MARKET PLACE is now open, please, send your ideas to Elisabeth Tyler (emt1 york.ac.uk).

1. Please find attached a DRAFT of the “Work Programme 2012” in the theme of socio-economic sciences and humanities of the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme which is foreseen to be published officially during this summer and which will probably not have major changes.
