Annual Research Poster Day Success

20 February 2018

School of Computer Science and Informatics Research Poster Event

The annual Research Student Poster exhibition took place at the School of Computer Science and Informatics recently, with the event offering an engaging platform for students to showcase and discuss their current research projects with fellow colleagues and tutors.

The standard of work was outstanding this year, with each poster giving a fascinating insight into the varied and thought-provoking research projects currently being undertaken by the students.

Professor David Marshall, Director of Postgraduate Research Studies said: “There were many outstanding posters and the breadth and quality of the research never ceases to amaze me.  The Poster day is one of the best days in the School calendar and a superb showcase for our PhD students’ research.

"The event had PhD students at all levels, some only a few months into their PhD studies, present their work and benefit from the experience of having to explain their work to staff members and other students. All good professional development and practice for their research.”

Two competitions were run on the day, with cash prizes up for grabs and awarded to the winners in each year group.

Congratulations to all of this year’s winners:
