Glyndŵr University hosts international computing conference


Computing experts from across the world were in Wrexham in September, as Glyndŵr University hosted the biennial International Conference on Internet Technologies & Applications (ITA15).

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the event, which has been held at the university since its inception, attracted over 100 delegates from more than 30 countries.

The gathering, which took place from 8 – 11 September, drew together researchers and developers from academia and industry across all fields of Internet computing, engineering and art and design, and featured a range of keynote speakers, workshops, tutorials and fringe events, including an art exhibition exploring the connection between art and technology.

Professor Richard Picking, Reader in Human-Computer Interaction at Glyndŵr University, and Chair of the Conference, said:

“This time we're celebrating our 10-year anniversary and are particularly delighted to be sponsored by the world-leading Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

“Our scope is wider than ever, as we welcome delegates from over 30 countries, including researchers, artists and developers from all fields of internet computing, creative digital media, moving image and engineering.”

He added: “This high-profile event is good for the university, the local economy and it puts north east Wales on the international map as a centre of academic research.

“It’s also an opportunity for experts in a wide range of disciplines to share their ideas and research.”
