Keynote Speaker at Sensors & their Applications XVII19th July 2012
I have been invited to speak at the Institute of Physics' biennial conference on Sensors and their Applications. The seventeenth in the series of conferences on Sensors & their Applications (S&A XVII) will be hosted outside of the UK and Ireland for the first time in Dubrovnik, Croatia in September 2013.
The conference will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia
This will be the 17th occurance of the conference, having began in Manchester in 1983 and included the first of the highly successful Eurosensors conference at Cambridge in 1987 and at Southampton in 1998. It was also one of the first conferences that I attended as a PhD student back in 2005!
Most notabley, it will be the first time that the conference has ventured outside of the UK and Ireland, this time being held in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The conference will take place between the 16-18 September 2013.
My talk is titled "New tricks with old sensors: pervasive technologies for novel applications", watch this space for more information!

A Photo of DejaView, from DejaView3rd April 2012
Alex's presentation on DejaView at the SenseCam Symposium 2012 in Oxford saw a milestone for us - the first time that the DejaView device (alongside the entire system, including the mobile phone and web server) has captured a DejaView presentation!
The photo on the left shows this seemingly trivial event - the first slide from Alex's presentation (Alex is just about visible on the left hand side of the photo)!
