PPIG Meetings, 2011: preliminary announcement to help people plan
As usual there will be two meetings in 2011, both in England this year.
(1) The main PPIG workshop will be held on 6-8 Sep 2011 in the
University of York, chaired by Alistair Edwards and Thomas Green.
York University's verdant campus hosts a fine collection of waterfowl
and extremely successful departments of computer science and
psychology. The city's proud history stars the pyrotechnic enthusiast
Guy Fawkes, born in several places in the city; Richard III, notable
breeder of roses but unlucky on the horses; and Richard (Dick) Turpin,
inspector of highways. Curiously, all of them came to a sticky end.
There'll be a doctoral consortium as usual. We can't tell you anything
yet about invited speakers, technical committee, or anything of
substance. We'll set up a blog or a twitter feed or something.
York is easily reached by train and road. For further details see the
university website, http://www.york.ac.uk/about/
(2) There will also be a short work-in-progress PPIG meeting, to be
held at Sheffield Hallam University (http://www.shu.ac.uk/ ), 18-19
April, chaired by Chris Roast.
These WIP-PPIGs are intended to allow constructive criticism of part-
finished work or even hardly-begun work. They are run very cheaply to
encourage student participation. Refereeing is very light, because
we're trying to be helpful. Come along, you'll enjoy it - talk about
your unfinished work. If you've only got finished work, throw a bit
away and come along anyway.
CALLS FOR PAPERS for both these meetings will be made as soon as we
get ourselves organised. Until then requests for information are best
sent to (1) Thomas Green, st...@greenery.me.uk, and (2) Chris Roast, c.r.ro...@shu.ac.uk
. They will try to be helpful.
