University of Oxford Department of Computer Science Industry day



On the 1st of June 2011 Geoff Hughes attended the University of Oxford Industry Showcase 2011. The day included three keynote speeches on research projects, plus micro-slots where researchers had two-minutes to pitch their research to the audience in quick succession. It coincided with the renaming of Oxford University Computing Laboratory ( Comlab ) to The department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford.

For more information on the department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford visit.

As part of the industry day, teams of 2nd year computer science students presented their 2nd year group projects using a wide range of technologies from Robots to Windows Phone7 to Microsoft Surface!  Congratulations to “Team 1” who won a cash prize for their “TowerTunes” application developed for Microsoft Surface.

The challenge:

“Write an application for the Surface that will encourage people to make music together in a group - either by mixing samples, tapping on a simulated keyboard or drumskin, or whatever interface can be devised”

“Team1" Bogdan-Alexandru Panait (Music and sound) Chris Hydon (Source control, game model) Daniel Nichol (Graphics programming) Ian Jones (Enemy AI and choreography, game model) Kris Joanidis (Graphics modelling)

Congratulations to all the teams as well as the teaching and administration teams at the University of Oxford for such an inspiring and enjoyable day  Peter Jeavons, Suzanna Marsh, Leanne Carveth, Sharon Lloyd
