New research from the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow featured heavily in SICSA DEMOfest 2016, the tenth Computer Science and Informatics research showcase organised by SICSA. SICSA (the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance) is a collaboration between 14 Scottish Universities, including the University of Glasgow.
The event began with keynote talks, including one by Craig MacDonald on “Query Efficiency Prediction and Green Search Engines”. It then continued with hands-on demonstrations of 50 systems developed by researchers from across Scotland. Eleven of the demos were by researchers from the University of Glasgow:
Maria Evangelopoulou: The “What, when, why, how and what now?” of an attack in an ICS/SCADA network.
Richard McCreadie: EAIMS: Emergency Analysis Identification and Management System
Xiao Yang: Social Sight: Tracking Murder and Bribery Reports during Elections
Foteini Katsarou: Subgraph Querying with Parallel Use of Querty Rewritings and Alternative Algorithms
Gözel Shakeri: Novel In-Car Interfaces
Dong Bach Vo: SAM: Automated Attachment Analysis Using the School Attachment Monitor
Theodoros Kalogeropoulos: Using Behaviour Change Techniques to Inform App Design
Oana Andrei: Twitter Voter Intention Classification System
Ruth Hoffmann: Comparing Verification and Simulation for Autonomous UAV Behaviour
Mary Ellen Foster: MuMMER: MultiModal Mall Entertainment Robot
Natalia Chechina: Towards Scalable ROS Multi-Robot Systems
