Ella Taylor-Smith represents the School of Computing at 20-20 all-faculty research presentation evening
01/03/2012 Inspace, Edinburgh
On Thursday 1st March PhD students and research staff, from all Edinburgh Napier faculties, gathered at Inspace
One student from each school (3 from each faculty) presented their work in a 20-20 style, i.e. in each presentation there were 20 slides, with each one set to advance after 20 seconds of display. This proved to be an entertaining and fun way for the students to find out about one other’s research. While only scraping the surface of the volume research being pursued by the University’s doctoral students, the presentations gave an indication of its diversity:co-creation in financial services, caring, property forecasting models, sustainability footprints, breast cancer care and after care, openness in musical notation, networked technology and events, technology and democratic participation. Ella Taylor-Smith represented IIDI
The swift and varied presentations were interspersed with drinks and small, brightly coloured nibbles, and the evening was rounded off with a keynote by Professor Russell Beale
of University of Birmingham. Professor Beale shared his perspective on the PhD student, in a presentation full of lively and often contradictory advice, followed by a final round of questions.
