  • The IEEE Computer Society supported lecture of Prof Christian Müller-Schloer from Leibniz Universität Hannover was held on Tuesday 22 September at 4pm at AUT's city campus. Prof Müller-Schloer's presentation was entitled 'Organic Computing - Emergence Under Control?' and drew an audience of around 50 people. The organiser enquired as to how many in the audience were IEEE members and disappointingly, as with the previously sponsored Peter Gibbons Memorial Lecture, only a handful of hands went up.

  • No IEEE Computer Society activity to report since the highly successful Peter Gibbons Memorial lecture. The Computer branch has been notified by CS Region 10 that the funds for the Distinguished Visitor Programme have been exhausted due to their budget cuts. We will have to wait until 2010 to bid for a DL as we had planned for 2009. They have instituted a 'DVP Lite' programme (http://www.r1.ieee.org/roch/cab/MVP-chapter-announce.html), which is merely an email notification of when a DV is passing through a particular country. To date I have not received any of these notifications. The CS branch will look to redistribute the funds set aside for its DL this year and an initial opportunity may be to help sponsor the Auckland leg of a visit by Prof Schloer who would present around NZ on Organic Computing.

  • IEEE Computer Society supported lecture in association with the Peter Gibbons Memorial lectures will be held on 27 May at 6pm (drinks and nibbles from 5:30pm). This will be on "Developing Darwin's Computer" by Assoc Prof Alexei Drummond (Bioinformatics, University of Auckland). This has been advertised to CS members and a good number of RSVPs have been received. Previous lectures in this series have drawn 100-120 participants, so we're looking forward to a well attended and enlightening presentation.

  • Looking to support one of the Peter Gibbons Memorial lectures as an IEEE presentation. As suggested by Morteza Biglari-Abhari we have approached the organising committee of this lecture series with the idea of linking one of the lectures to the IEEE presentations. The Gibbons organising committee have reacted favourably to this suggestion and we are now looking at which of the lectures would be most suited within the IEEE presentation programme. The lectures in the series are:
    May 13: The Combinatorics at the Heart of the Problem - Prof Charles Colbourn (Arizona State University)
    May 20: Making Software Testing Easier - Dr Myra B. Cohen (University of Nebraska)
    May 27: Developing Darwin's Computer - Assoc Prof Alexei Drummond (Bioinformatics, University of Auckland)
    June 3: Technologies for Deep Learning - Dr John Hamer, Andrew Luxton-Reilly, Dr Beryl Plimmer (Computer Science, University of Auckland)

  • There has not been any activity in CS chapter since the last meeting as we have already had our two technical meetings this year.

  • We had a joint seminar with Robotics chapter (presented by Dr. Sang-Rok Oh from KIST, Korea) on 14th of August.
  • We had two activities so far this year. There may be another one if possible (after consulting with you and Peter regarding the fund available for CS chapter).
