BCS Northampton Event: Networking Event (Pub)

Date: Thursday, 8th November 2012 Title: ’Networking Event (Pub)’
Time: Bus from Northampton, Avenue Campus 6:30pm. Event Start 7:30 pm Food and drinks throughout the evening.
Synopsis: Not the sort of networking that involves lots of wires and TCP/IP settings, though if that’s what you want to talk about, that’s up to you. A social event intended to give members a chance to get to meet each other, to be held in the function room of Silverstone’s famous White Horse Public House, a venue that is full of Motor Sports memorabilia. The event will have a distinctly Motor Sports theme with an IT angle. There will be a brief introductory talk by someone from the industry, followed by team quiz questions and a few fun games hosted by someone who has met pretty much every driver in F1, plus a buffet and bar to get people mingling.
Presenter: Andrew Page – Deputy Chair, BCS Northampton (2010-2012)
Venue: White Horse Pub, Silverstone. (

Social Analysis of Publications

The Computing staff's network of co-authors, at the University of Northampton, based on the University's  research repository NECTAR - on 12th November 2016. The data goes back to 2010.

The data was analysed using the software VOSviewer - free software for visualising networks. Differences in colours represents, the clusters of publications with those authors picked out by the software. The relative size of the circles is the relative number of publications listed; so for the two biggest circles/hubs it relates to 55 and 34 publications in this time period. Some relatively new authors, to the University but not to research, explains some of the 'islands' and the number of publications within it - it only reflects publications whilst at the University of Northampton.

To dig a little deeper, going to  look at the two biggest 'hubs' through their NECTAR records, so potentially going …

Computer lecturer’s research helps improve the next generation of technology

Taken from: A computing lecturer at the University of Northampton, who is researching into how the efficiency of our everyday devices, such as mobile phones, can be improved, has been awarded the best paper at two recent conferences. Dr Michael Opoku Agyeman has written several journal papers focusing on how the next generation of technology can meet the ever increasing demands from consumers. He was invited to present his work at the 19th Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design in Cyprus and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ 14th International Conference in Paris. Part of his research concentrates on whether several processing elements can be incorporated on a single chip, known as System-On-Chip, to improve the efficiency and speed of the computing systems that we use every day, from mobile phones to video-game consoles and even medical equipment…
