Annual Conference
 The CDT held its 18th annual conference on 7th June 2019 at the Postgraduate Centre, Heriot-Watt University with around 90 delegates from academia and industry, and students and alumni attending. Our keynote speakers were Kristin Flagel, Lead Scientist SYNAPSE, University of Glasgow - talking about her research 'Imaging the Brain' and Tom Empson from Microsoft Research discussing 'Optics for the Cloud'.
Our first-year students presented the work that they have been doing in the Group Systems Engineering Project. The second-year students gave a one-minute presentation pitch of their research accompanied with a poster presentation. Our third- and fourth-year students gave an oral presentation of their work.
Natalie Bruce, Eilidh Johnston and Gary Quinn, won the prize for the best Systems Engineering group poster at the conference with their poster on ‘High Speed Data Processing for Fluid Capillary Diameter Measurements’.
Rowan Pocock and Nicholas Smith were joint winners of the poster prize for second year research engineers.
Peter Wakeford’s talk on 'Optic disc and fovea localisation in ultra-widefield scanning laser ophthalmoscope images captured in multiple modalities' was awarded the best presentation prize for a third-year student.
The fourth-year presentation prizes were awarded jointly to Jack Thomas for his presentation on 'Continuous- wave pump-enhanced optical parametric oscillator applied to mid-infrared photo-thermal spectroscopy' and Matt Daykin for a presentation on 'Machine learning of an anatomical atlas for computed tomography medical imaging'.
