Members of DCAPI have presented and showed their research work in the Annual Showcase Event for the School of Computer Science, University of Lincoln. (14th and 15th May). Saddam also won the “Best Demo” prize for his video matching & retrieval interactive demo.
Postgraduates by Research (PGRs) had all day on Wed 14th May and featured in the morning of Thursday 15th May as well, with visitors and companies representatives.
The event is organised by Dr Amr Ahmed (Leader of the DCAPI group, and the Program Leader for PGRs), for a number of years.
The event was also officially opened (and concluded) by the Head of School, Dr David Cobham, who attended the full program and handed the certificates to winners as well as the Helpers, including the Admin team.
All had fun during the Poster session and inbetween the sessions as well.

Amr Ahmed attended the ECM (Executive Committee Meeting) of his SUS-IT project (http://sus-it.lboro.ac.uk/) at Loughborough, and participated in the 2 days workshop for the project. This is one of the very important meetings, especially towards the late stage of the project, with all workpackages represented.

Over 40 researchers, from vision and language areas, attended and it was a good opportunity for networking and exchange of contacts and ideas. Posters and sides will be available on the network’s website in the near future

Amr participated in the Write-UP workshop of the SUS-IT project consortium (which Amr is a partner in), on 17th and 18th May in Loughborough. Interesting to meet most of the partners, from all over the UK. Many discussions across the work-packages, especially with completion of the project (started in Jan 2009) expected ~mid next year.
