Professional Involvement - Conference Involvement


Not only do our staff members present papers and posters, but they also participate in panel discussion and workshops at conferences. Over many years they have also been involved in various roles to organise conferences and to serve on conference and programme committees (nationally and internationally).

Conference involvement includes full organisation such as for ISIC2020, member of a programme committee, track chair, e.g. for posters or panel discussions, session chairs and also reviewing for national and international conferences. Our staff have also assisted as mentors for national and international doctoral student workshops and colloquiums.
