I will be moving to Scotland in July of 2010 to start my new appointment as Professor in the Chair of Human Computer Interaction at the School of Computer Science in St. Andrews University Scotland.
"St Andrews (founded in 1411) is the oldest university in Scotland. It has won international renown for both research and education and consistently features among the highest ranking British universities in league tables compiled, for example, by the Times Higher Education Supplement".
"The School of Computer Science organises its research by working within small but highly motivated teams. These teams are often fluid, acquiring and losing researchers as the focus of interest shifts. To stimulate such a dynamic high-quality environment, the School’s research is organised into a three overlapping themes that cover four areas of theoretical and practical Computer Science:
The School is a host institution in the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA), which is providing partial funding for my post (www.sicsa.ac.uk).
- Networked and distributed systems including computer networking, distributed systems engineering and systems architecture
- Complex systems engineering including software engineering, system dependability, middleware and social informatics
- Artificial intelligence and symbolic computation including computational algebra, computational logic, natural language processing, constraint programming, intelligent computation, automated reasoning and image processing."
"The overall objectives of SICSA are to build a world-class Scottish computer science research community and to promote cultural change so that researchers in Scotland work collaboratively rather than in competition. The SISCA research themes of Next-generation Internet, Multi-modal Interaction, Modelling & Abstraction and Complex Systems Engineering."
