Research Symposium 2016

Programme of the School of Computer Science Research Symposium 2016

The School of Computer Science Research Symposium 2016 will be held from November 1 - November 3, 2016. Below is an outline of the programme, which will be finalised soon. Student presentations are 20 minutes long, plus 2-3 minutes for questions.

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016 - Kilburn 1.1

11:00-12:30 Keynote and Prizes (1.1) , Session Chair: Robert Stevens
  • Keynote talk: Gordon Blair, Lancaster University: The Changing Face of Computer Science
  • This talk will discuss significant changes in the nature of computer science research and implications this might have for the PhD process. Themes investigated will include the increasing importance of cross-disciplinary research, the benefits of 'in the wild' research and the strong emphasis on impact in research. The talk will conclude by looking at my own current work as an example of these trends, looking at the role of digital technology in supporting earth and environmental sciences as they grapple with the challenges of climate change.
