BCS Meetings are free to attend.
Our AGM is intentionally short: we will have our usual planning meeting February (2017) ; the report from the Treasurer will be available from here shortly – please read them in advance of the meeting so we can quickly get through the AGM and get on with the very interesting talk! Please forward all nominations for Chair, Secretary and Treasurer to the Branch Secretary: email@example.com
Where the worlds of computing and classical ballet collide Readysaltedcode are bringing computer science theory and concepts to life through the art of classical ballet and the world of digital through the use of a variety of technologies to enhance the performance which are then turned into classroom resources for educators around the world to use. From theory to data to dance.
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 …

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…
