Strategic partnership with the University of BabylonTaken from: The University of Northampton lays down the foundations of a strategic partnership with the University of Babylon  http://www.northampton.ac.uk/news/article/446/the-university-of-northampton-lays-down-the-foundations-of-a-strategic-partnership-with-the-university-of-babylon
The University of Northampton’s School of Science and Technology was pleased to welcome visitors from the University of Babylon in Iraq.
Led by Professor Dhirgham Alkhafaji, Director of Scientific Affairs & Cultural Relations, the visit, which took place on 19 February, is the culmination of several months of discussions between colleagues in the School of Science and Technology and their counterparts in Babylon.
During the visit, discussions took place, and agreements were reached on several initiatives, including a package for PhD supervision, 2+2 (two years at Babylon, two years at Northampton) in Computing, staff exchange, consultancy and knowledge transfer in the area of solid wastes management.
Professor Kamal Bechkoum, Executive Dean of the School of Science and Technology, commented: “This is a significant partnership that fits in with the School’s internationalisation plan and we are delighted about progress thus far.”

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 - http://nectar.northampton.ac.uk/view/divisions/SSTCT.html on 12th November 2016. The data goes back to 2010.




The data was analysed using the software VOSviewer - http://www.vosviewer.com/ 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: http://www.northampton.ac.uk/news/computer-lecturers-research-helps-improve-the-next-generation-of-technology/ 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…
