After ICMS moved to 15 South College Street in January 2010, an upgrade to the audio-visual facilities in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre was planned with financial aid from EPSRC. The installation of the new state-of-the-art equipment took place during May. In addition to the traditional blackboards and other display equipment, we are now happy to be able to offer
- projection of two simultaneous presentations
- a smart board
- video conferencing via the internet.
On 22 June the new facilities were put to the test. As part of the workshop The mathematical challenges and modelling of hydroelasticity, a talk was given by Professor Roger Hosking from a lecture room at his home institution of University of Waikato in New Zealand. Although the 11 hour time zone difference meant that Roger had to start his talk at 21.00 local time to fit with the 10.00 UK time slot, the test was successful and ICMS are delighted to have an ash-cloud-proof way of delivering talks!
