WiSE Project Day12th November 2008
WiSE held it's first 'Project Day', an intensive one-day problem-based exercise for PhD students in ECS that are researching wireless sensing related topics. Ten students took part in an intensive day which ran from 8am to 7pm! Two teams were formed, one of which was tasked with developing a piece of clinical equipment (in response to a request from a Surgeon at the local University Hospital), while the other was required to develop a sensor network to monitor our building.

The exercise promoted a wealth of discussion between researchers, and also provided everybody with a great opportunity to familiarise themselves with sensor network hardware and develop practical and problem-solving skills. The following day saw presentations from both teams, who demonstrated that they had developed solutions to their respective problems. The event was a great success, entirely thanks to the efforts of those who took part, with many requests for a similar event to be held in the future... Watch this space!
WiSE (Wireless Sensing in ECS) is an interest group bringing together researchers in ECS. WiSE operates as part of the sensor networks research theme of the PSC. WiSE addresses the 'sensor networks' research theme by bringing together researchers with a common interest in wireless sensing and sensor networks.

PRiME Demonstrates Research at DATE 201512th March 2015
PRiME researchers are demonstrating our research this week at the DATE 2014 Exhibition in Grenoble, France. The exhibition stand was led by Gerry Scott, PRiME Impact Manager, and showcased a selection of the research activities being undertaken on the Programme at Southampton.
This included a number of technology demonstrators:
Tuesday: Anup Das (Workload uncertainty characterization for embedded system energy minimization)
Wednesday: Rishad Shafik (Energy minimization of OpenMP paralle... [more]
ESD Group Christmas Party9th December 2010
The ESD Christmas Party was held this evening at an Indian Restaurant in the centre of Southampton. Everyone seemed to have a very enjoyable evening, and the restauarant even had a magician touring the tables all night (see the photo)! This created some controversial discussions on how the tricks may have worked, and also a lot of confusion over what was happening (I think some people were beginning to believe in magic)!
After the meal, a group of us continued the celebrations afterwards in t... [more]
