Today marked the 10th anniversary of the Coventry-Southampton research exchange visits, which we started back in 2005 (when I was a PhD student!). Since their inital beginnings, these visits have broadened to also incorporate research going on at Cambridge University. The purpose of the visits is to share research on pervasive systems in an informal environment, and give research students an opportunity to get experience presenting their work and to receive friendly feedback and advice from an external audience.

At this year's event, held at Coventry University, Sei Ping and Teng gave 30 minute presentations on their research, which is probably one of the last presentations they're going to give before their PhD vivas - so an excellent opportunity for some feedback!
