The 2018 School of Computing Student Conference was a great success – students from across the School showed their final year projects, their PhD presentations and their coursework to an audience of university and business guests. This was one of the first events in the new Future Technologies Centre, and thanks to Mike Reid (Information Services) we were able to make full use of the new facilities.

Best software demonstration: Douglas Farr: Applying Block Programming to SQL
Honourable mention: Kees Jansen: A visual representation of our universe (Virtual Reality project)
Best poster: Jason Bissessur: Artificial intelligence in business, effects on employment
