ICT Early Career Researcher Workshop, Glasgow 2014

February 2014

EPSRC’s Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Theme held this workshop as part of its on-going commitment to support the development of early career researchers.

The two-day workshop provided a forum for early career researchers from across the ICT research landscape to engage with academic mentors, guest speakers and EPSRC staff. Workshop sessions provided advice on funding opportunities and career development, networking activities and discussions on the impact of ICT research, responsible innovation and the development of strategies to benefit UK ICT research.
Prior to the workshop, participants were invited to provide a short title and longer description answering the question:

"Which research topic in ICT is currently of greatest interest to you?"

Participants were then invited to sort the resulting topics into coherent groups. These groups are shown below, with the colours used to refer to them at the meeting. To see the longer descriptions for any coloured area, or the researchers who were interested in the topics within, simply click on it.

Group MembersDescription
Energy Considerations in ICTsEnergy consumption of ICT has accounted for at least 2% of the whole world energy consumption. However, a breakthrough for reducing the energy consumption while not sacrificing the performance of the communication systems is yet to be found.
HPC For the MassesComputing is moving from single core into multiple core systems. We are now entering a world where (virtually) all systems are parallel. However, making the best use of this is not easy with only a few niche areas having been able to exploit parallelism.
