KMi Students at the 2nd AKT Doctoral SymposiumTom Heath, Thursday 26 January 2006 | Annotate
PhD students from KMi took part this week in the 2nd AKT Doctoral Symposium, held at the University of Aberdeen. The event was entirely organised by students from the EPSRC-funded AKT project, providing an opportunity to present doctoral work to a public audience and gain experience of the peer review process. KMi student Vlad Tanasescu's paper on Semantic Geographical Information Systems narrowly missed the best paper award, receiving instead a commendation recognising the progress made in his research. A 3rd Doctoral Symposium is being planned for later in 2006 to continue the series.
