With the published REF results in everyone’s minds, ‘impact’ will be an excellent focus for the 2015 conference.  However, ‘impact’ will have more than purely a research flavour.  Good teaching naturally has ‘impact’, as does effective industrial and governmental  liaison, public engagement and much more.  These areas will all contribute to relevant and interesting presentations, workshops and debates with appropriate keynote speakers and facilitators adding strength and depth to the programme.

Topics and speakers provisionally planned include:

  • New Heads’ Workshop
  • CS Graduate Employability
  • HEFCE, EPSRC and HEA sessions
  • Understanding and succeeding with Horizon 2020 applications
  • CS in the UK, Europe and across the world
  • The Athena Swan initiative
  • … and several more

The CPHC conference will lead into the BCS Academy Symposium over lunch on Tuesday 28th.  Further details will appear on the Conference webpage as the schedule, including sessions and speakers, takes shape.  CPHC delegates will have the opportunity to register for just the CPHC conference on the Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning or the CPHC conference and the BCS Academy Symposium on the Tuesday afternoon.  A booking form will be available soon …
