Old College 0800-0850

Breakfast: Elder Room, Old College, South Bridge, EH8 9YL

Agenda: Strategic Overview of ICT Research at Edinburgh

UoE Attendance:

Following breakfast, the panel will split for parallel visits to School of Engineering and Electronics (Kings Buildings), and School of Informatics (Appleton Tower). The panel will reunite at 1200 for the wrap-up session at Appleton Tower.

Sanderson Building 0900-1200

Posters: Institute for Digital Communications (IDCOM)
Coffee Break
Focus Group: New Academic Staff
Posters: Institute for Micro and Nano Systems (IMNS)

Appleton Tower 0900-1400

Poster Session and Focus Groups will run in parallel, followed by a buffet lunch.

Poster Session Floors 2 & 3

For logistical reasons, Appleton Tower poster and demo presentations will be run in two sessions: 0900-1030 on 3rd floor & 1030-1200 on 2nd floor. Coffee will be available throughout.

Posters will be grouped - with the same groupings used in the datasheets returned to EPSRC.

The schedule below is merely indicative; panel members and others will be free to wander and browse at will. Presenters should not presume that the panel will want to stay a full half-hour with one group; nor should they assume that visitors will not arrive unscheduled. The panel's job is to gather as much information, pertinent to the review, as they can in the time available — not to pursue their personal interest in your research. So don't be offended if they move swiftly on. Conversely, even if they are engrossed in your work, please encourage them to move on, punctually, to the start of their next scheduled stop. You can always invite them to return during the lunch break, or for a future visit. The schedule should ensure that each group is seen by at least two panel members.
