Showcasing Physical Sciences Impact Event 2019

This call is to invite submissions of an Expression of Interest to exhibit at the Showcasing Physical Sciences Impact Event. EPSRC is looking for 10-15 eye-catching, hands-on exhibitions that demonstrate physical sciences research. The exhibits should be aimed at a non-expert but science literate audience. Exhibitors are encouraged to think about the variety of different forms impact can take when designing their exhibits: impact through knowledge; impact through people; societal, cultural and economic impact. Successful exhibitors will be invited to display their research at the event in London on Friday 6 December 2019, and will also be able to attend the other activities, including plenary talks, keynote speech and panel sessions.

Please note we are not looking for static displays/posters or overviews of current research which have yet to have demonstrable impact.

Responsible Natural Language Processing for Intelligent Interfaces

A future call for proposals for Natural Language Processing is planned for July 2019. This call recognises that many of the challenges addressed by the natural language processing are collaborative in nature, drawing upon expertise from a range of techniques including, but not limited to, machine learning, semantic techniques, reasoning, statistical analysis and the social sciences. In order to contribute a step change in this area, proposals must contain a new collaboration with one or more interdisciplinary partner (academic or industrial).

This call also encourages a responsible innovation approach in this research area, ensuring the benefits of intelligent technologies can be realised for the UK.
