It’s currently conference season in academia and over the past couple of weeks the staff and research students from my research group have participated in a number of events, both in Edinburgh and beyond. Indeed PhD student Alicja Pawluczuk is still on the road this week, flying the flag for the Centre for Social Informatics at the 2017 British HCI Conference, organised by the HCI research groups at the University of Sunderland and Edinburgh Napier University in conjunction with the Interaction Specialist Group of BCS.

The first event that brought us together last month was the 2017 Edinburgh Napier University Research conference. We very much enjoyed participating at this event last year (and winning a few prizes along the way), so were pleased when our submissions for 2017 were all accepted for presentation. We were also grateful that the programme included plenty of time for networking, with others from our School and across the University.

At the end of the showcase the names of the winners of the University research prizes were announced. Although members of my group did not pick up any this year – it was our turn in 2016 😉 – we were delighted that four went to our colleagues in the School of Computing:

  • Cedric Perret for the best poster
  • Neil Urquhart for the best contribution to the Information Society research theme
  • Emma Hart for the best contribution to the Sustainable Communities research theme
  • Bill Buchanan for the best contribution to knowledge exchange
