The Centre for Social Informatics had a very successful day at Edinburgh Napier University’s 2016 Research Conference last Wednesday. We presented our work in three of the sessions:
- Frances Ryan delivered a three minute thesis presentation on her doctoral work on personal online reputation management using the single slide below
- Iris Buunk, Peter Cruickshank, Lyndsey Jenkins, and John Mowbray presented posters of their recent research
- We all staffed a stand at the evening’s Festival of Ideas research showcase
The biggest thrill of the day came towards the end of day at the Principal’s Research Excellence Awards ceremony. The School of Computing won the most prizes, with our research centre the most successful group in the University. Iris Buunk won the Best poster prize, Frances Ryan was recognised for her Outstanding contribution to University life as a research student, and I was the joint winner of the prize for the Best contribution to the Information Society research theme. We celebrated our wins with smoky cocktails in chemistry lab beakers at the ‘bar’ during the evening showcase session.
