CONGREGATION 22 January

CONGREGATION 6 February 2 p.m.

Members of Congregation are reminded that written notice of any intention
to vote against, or any proposed amendment to, the enacting part of the
statute at item 1 below, or of any intention to vote against the preambles
of the statutes at item 2 below or the resolution at item 3 below, signed in
each case by at least two members of Congregation, must be given to the
Registrar by noon on Monday, 29 January (see the Guide to Procedures in
Congregation cited in the note at the end of `University Agenda').


1 Voting on Statute promulgated on 16
January

Statute: Winter Williams Prizes and Studentships

(For form of Statute see p. 439.)



2 Promulgation of Statutes

Statute (1): Establishment of Professorship of Indian History and
Culture

(For form of Statute (1) see Gazette
11 January.)

Statute (2): Professorships

Explanatory note

The University's `statutory' professorships are currently listed both in Tit.
XV, Sect. II (Statutes, 2000, p. 111) and in Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 5,
SCHEDULE A–C (pp. 378–82). Council has already made a
decree delegating to its Planning and Resource Allocation Committee the
power to make decrees establishing new `statutory' posts and changing
existing decrees governing such posts, subject to the requirement that the
committee should `bring forward to Council for decision any case which
it considers to raise particular difficulties' (see Decree (1) of 9 November
2000, Gazette, p. 306). Through oversight, however, account
was not taken in drafting the decree of the current provision for each
professorship to be listed by statute. Only Council may promote statutes,
and the following statute, and the decree to be made by Council if the
statute is approved, now remove the need for the Planning and Resource
Allocation Committee to ask Council to promote a statute adding a new
professorship to the list in the existing statute or changing the title of a
chair already in that list.

Council has nevertheless asked its Planning and Resource Allocation
Committee always to report to it for information the establishment of a
`statutory' post funded by a major benefaction, so that all members of
Council will be aware of this benefaction in advance of the publication of
the relevant decree and so that Council can consider whether it wishes
formally to express its gratitude to the benefactor (e.g. by passing a
resolution of thanks).

(2) WHEREAS it is expedient for provision for `statutory'
professorships to be made in future solely by decree, the university enacts
as follows.

In Tit. XV, delete Sect. II (Statutes, 2000, p. 111) and renumber existing
Sectt. III–VII (pp. 116–22) as Sectt. II–VI.

Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is approved

1 In Ch. VIII, Sect. I, § 5 (Statutes, 2000, p. 367), below the title
insert:

`1. There shall be within the University the professorships listed in
Schedules A–C annexed to this decree.'

2 Ibid., before `The General Provisions of this
decree' insert `2'.



3 Voting on Resolution approving the
conferment of an Honorary Degree

That the conferment of the Degree of Master of Arts, honoris
causa
, upon JOHN HARVEY ASHDOWN, formerly Conservation
Officer of the City of Oxford, be approved.

¶ Mr Ashdown retired in September 2000 after a distinguished
career as City Conservation Officer for twenty-eight years. He was also a
founder-member, and later President, of the Society for Post-Medieval
Archaeology, and he has made his knowledge freely available by lecturing
and teaching both in the University and in local societies all over the
region. His expertise, tact, and determination have made a substantial
contribution to the conservation of Oxford's heritage and enhanced public
awareness of its historic environment.

If the resolution is approved, the honorary degree will be conferred at
the afternoon degree ceremony on 3 March 2001.

CIRCULATION OF FLYSHEETS

Ten or more members of Congregation may arrange to have a flysheet circulated with the
Gazette (a) on matters before Congregation, or Convocation
in regard
to the election of the Professor of Poetry, or (b) relating to matters of
general
interest to the University, subject to the following general conditions:

(i) no flysheet will be circulated which in the opinion of the Vice-Chancellor and
Proctors might be defamatory or otherwise illegal;

(ii) the right is reserved on behalf of the University and its employees, without
prior
consultation with the signatories, to publish an apology in respect of any statement in a
flysheet which is complained of as defamatory or otherwise illegal (whether or not the
statement can be shown to be true);

(iii) the signatories shall jointly and severally indemnify the University and its
employees against any costs or damages payable in respect of their flysheet and, unless a
Queen's Counsel (to be mutually agreed on by the signatories and the University) shall advise
within four months of the making of any claim in respect of a flysheet that any proceedings
could be contested with the probability of success, such damages shall include any sum paid
by the University in settlement of any claim arising out of the flysheet;

(iv) the flysheet shall consist of one leaf only (though text may appear on both
sides
of the leaf); the text shall include the name and college or department of each of the
signatories;

(v) a copy of the text of the flysheet shall be delivered to the
Registrar before 10 a.m. on the Monday of the week in which circulation is desired; it shall
be accompanied by an indemnity in accordance with condition (iii) above drawn up on a form
obtainable from the Registrar and signed by each of the signatories of the flysheet; the
Registrar shall be informed at the same time which of the signatories is to be notified
whether
the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors have authorised circulation;

(vi) the Registrar shall arrange for the production by the University Press of
copies
of a flysheet the circulation of which has been duly authorised.

Though every effort will be made to circulate on the day desired flysheets so
received,
it must be understood that this cannot be guaranteed.

(a) Matters before Congregation or Convocation

If the flysheet deals with a matter that is a formal agendum for Congregation, or for
Convocation in regard to the election of the Professor of Poetry, or the subject of a report
published in the Gazette, the production costs will be met from university
funds.

(b) Matters of general interest to the University

If the flysheet deals with a matter that is not a formal agendum for Congregation or the
subject of a report published in the Gazette, the Vice-Chancellor will decide
whether it is of sufficient general interest to warrant circulation with the
Gazette;
the production costs for such a flysheet will be the responsibility of the signatories.

Oxford University Student Union

The Executive and the Graduate Committee of the Oxford University Student Union may
have
flysheets circulated with the Gazette under the arrangements and subject to
the
conditions set out above, provided that:

(1) the number of names to be included on the flysheet under condition (iv) shall
be
not less than a majority of the total number of members of the Executive or the Graduate
Committee of OUSU, as the case may be, and each of the persons named shall sign the
indemnity required under condition (v);

(2) the maximum number of flysheets to be circulated as of right, whether on
matters
before Congregation (to be paid for by the University) or on matters of general interest to
the
University (to be paid for by OUSU and to be subject to the Vice-Chancellor's decision as
prescribed under (b) above) shall be three per term for each of these bodies,
save
that the Vice-Chancellor shall have discretion to permit further flysheets.

Subject to proviso (1) above, the Executive and the Graduate Committee of OUSU
may
also support flysheets signed by not less than ten members of Congregation.

DEPARTMENT OF
EXPERIMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY

Oxford Summer School on Connectionist Modelling

This summer school will be held from Sunday, 15 July, to Friday, 27 July,
in the Department of Experimental Psychology.

The course is aimed primarily at researchers who wish to exploit neural
network models in their teaching and/or research, and it will provide a general
introduction to connectionist modelling, biologically plausible neural networks
and brain function through lectures and exercises on Macintoshes and PCs.
The course is interdisciplinary in content though many of the illustrative
examples are taken from cognitive and developmental psychology, and
cognitive neuroscience. The instructors with primary responsibility for
teaching the course are Kim Plunkett and Edmund Rolls.

No prior knowledge of computational modelling will be required though
simple word-processing skills will be assumed.

The cost of participation is £950, which covers accommodation,
registration, and all literature required. A number of partial
bursaries will be available for graduate students, but intending participants
should note that in previous years the number of applications for these has far
exceeded the number of bursaries available.

Further details on the 2001 Summer School can be found at: http://www-
cogsci.psych.ox.ac.uk/summer-school/.

If you are interested in participating in the Summer School, please send a brief
description of your background with an explanation of why you would like to
attend (one page maximum), no later than 28 February 2001, to Mrs Sue
King, Department of Experimental Psychology, South Parks Road, Oxford

RESEARCH SERVICES OFFICE

The Oxford University Research Services Office (RSO) is based in
the University Offices, Wellington Square (with a satellite
office in the Medical School Offices, Level 3, John Radcliffe
Hospital). The RSO is part of the Finance Division of the
University's central administration.

The RSO processes and approves all applications to outside
bodies for research grants and approves research-related
agreements on behalf of the University. It also acts in an
advisory capacity for those seeking outside funding or requiring
information about specific initiatives (e.g. LINK, ROPA, Teaching
Company Schemes, EU research programmes, etc.).

The RSO produces a weekly bulletin on funding opportunities,
electronic Research Funding News
(eRFN), which is available to members of the
University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/erin/. Research-related information
other than that regarding funding opportunities is communicated
via the RSO's electronic Bulletin Board, which is updated on an
ad hoc basis. This is also available to members of
the University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/bboard.htm.

Research contracts with industry are negotiated through the
RSO, which deals with research-related agreements covering the
sponsorship of research, clinical trials, services to industry,
confidentiality issues, material transfer, and consultancy.
Contact details for members of the RSO are as follows:

Ms Catherine Quinn, Director (telephone: (2)70158, e-mail:
catherine.quinn@admin. ox.ac.uk);

Dr Richard Liwicki, Head of Research Contracts Administration
(telephone: (2)70011, e-mail: richard.liwicki@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Submitting research grant applications to external sponsors

Members of the University are reminded that all applications for
external research funding support must be endorsed on behalf of
the University through the RSO before they are despatched to the
sponsor, whether or not this is required by the funding body.

The reasons for the requirement are (i) to ensure that the
funds being requested are adequate for the purpose and that the
costing rules of the sponsor have been applied correctly, and
(ii) to ensure that the University could undertake the
obligations arising from an award and that these do not
contravene University policy.

The detailed arrangements are as follows: applicants for
research grants should submit the original plus one copy of their
application, together with a completed copy of the University's
outside grants form, to the Research Services Office, Wellington
Square (telephone (2)70146), leaving three clear working days for
it to be processed.

In connection with the acceptance of awards and signature of
contracts it should be noted that Statutes, Tit. X, Sect. III,
provides that `no official of the University or any other person
employed by the University or working in or in connection with
any department of or under the control of the University shall
in connection with any invention, discovery, or patent, or ...
process, or manufacture have authority to make any
representations on behalf of the University or to be concerned
in any transaction whatsoever in connection therewith on behalf
of the University except with the express consent of Council'.

The Research Services Office has been given authority to
approve research funding applications to external sponsors and
the terms of contracts in straightforward cases under this
provision; in more complicated cases, specific authority is
necessary.

Enquiries related to any aspect of externally sponsored
research should be directed to the Research Services Office,
whose staff would be pleased to help.

COLIN MATTHEW FUND

The Colin Matthew Fund has been established for the promotion and
encouragement of historical study or research within the
University. The Committee for the Fund now invites applications
for grants from Junior Members, undergraduate or graduate. The
grants are primarily intended to support travel for the purposes
of research (which may lead to a dissertation or an extended
essay) but other uses will be considered. It is intended to make
two awares of up to £500 each but the committee may
determine different levels of award, or no award, in the light
of applications received.

Application forms may be obtained from the Senior Bursar, St
Hugh's College, Oxford OX2 6LE, and must be submitted by the end
of Hilary Full Term, i.e. 10 March. Applicants will be notified
of the outcome before the beginning of Trinity Term.

Return to List of Contents of this
section



SIR JOHN HICKS FUND

The Committee for the Sir John Hicks Fund invites applications
from members of the University for grants towards the costs of
research in economic history. Applications will be considered
from undergraduates, graduate students, and members of academic
staff, and may related to research into the economic history of
any period or country.

Applicants should (a) provide sufficient information
about the general nature of their research to establish that it
falls within the field of economic history; and (b)
specify the precise nature and cost of the expenditure for which
a grant is requested. They should also give the name of one
referee who might be consulted by the committee.

It is intended by the committee that grants should normally be
made for sums of up to £250, though this may on occasion be
exceeded. Retrospective grants will be made only in exceptional
circumstances.

The committee will consider applications twice in each year. The
closing date for the first round is Monday of the third week of
Hilary Term, and for the second round Monday of the third week
of Trinity Term. Applications should be sent to Mrs E.A.
Macallister, Secretary of the Committee for the Sir John Hicks
Fund, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.
