CDE RE Zack Lyons showcases his research at co-LAB

Saturday 22nd April 2017

CDE Research Engineer Zack Lyons will be showcasing part of his research with ‘Z-World: Brain Injury Rehabilitation’. Walk through streets, give instructions and react to the situations you’re presented with. This technology is being used in their habilitation of brain injuries, analysing how people behave and predicting problems that they may experience in real life to develop new therapeutic opportunities.
In collaboration with the University of Bath’s Leon Watts and Zack Lyons.

This showcase is part of the ‘Dance and Virtual Worlds’ Co-Lab event taking place at The Edge, University of Bath.


Next Generation Computational Modelling Summer School

Registration for the Summer Academy of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Next Generation Computational Modelling is now open.

The NGCM Summer Academy will be held at the University of Southampton from Monday, 26 June to Friday, 26 June 2017.

The NGCM Summer Academy is a one-week event bringing together PhD students from across the UK who work on computer simulation of science and engineering problems and want to extend their training through the workshops available at the Summer Academy. The training is delivered by world-leading experts and key developers of the relevant software tools.

Pre-requisites vary from course to course but generally include at least some programming experience.

Before the main programme outlined above, three courses are on offer, aimed at those just starting with computational work. These courses provide a basic or intermediate introduction to Python, version control and testing and can be attended separately as a one-day event. In parallel, there will be a course on Scientific Programming run by a fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute, Alice Harpole.

The NGCM summer school offers 50 subsidised spaces available to UK PhD students working with computational modelling. There is a nominal attendance fee of £10 per day.

For further information and to register please visit the Summer Academy’s webpage.
