* Back on campus this week and gearing up for this major conference coming to Glyndwr University from September 9. My group of student bloggers [pictured above at MediaCityUK] will be covering the event – look out for updates with the hashtag #GlyndwrUni.

Registration is under way for the fifth International Conference on Internet Technologies & Applications (ITA13) to be hosted at Glyndwr University in September.

The biennial conference, which features a range of keynote speakers, workshops and fringe events, returns to Glyndwr University from September 10-13.

It brings together researchers from academia and industry developers from digital media, computing and engineering.

The conference has been held in Wrexham since 2005 and will this year attract over 70 delegates from over 30 countries.

The wider programme, including an exhibition of research posters, workshops and demonstrations of new technology in the foyer, will open up the event to the public for more general interest.

In-between-ness: using art to capture a sense of self, an exhibition of paintings, film stills and moving image by contemporary artists Karen Heald and Susan Liggett at the university’s Oriel Sycharth Gallery, also forms part of the programme.

Student journalists from the Broadcasting and Journalism programme will be live blogging the conference and events around it. Follow updates on twitter via the hash tag #GlyndwrUni.

Dr. Richard Picking, Reader in Human-Computer Interaction and Conference Chair, said:

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

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