Out of adversity… came research connections

Dr Tim Storer, Director of Knowledge Exchange & Impact at the SICSA research pool and Dr Ali McIntosh, Director of SULSA, on a pandemic innovation with growing benefits for research.

Initially, the creation of the Coffee Break at RIS was driven by immediate need. At the outset of the pandemic, a lot of the core activity of the Pools to promote collaborations across institutions and disciplines became difficult or impossible: in-person workshops, sandpits and bilateral exchanges just wouldn’t be feasible for the foreseeable future. The Pools are led by a combination of academics and research management professionals, who recognised that the informal aspects of these activities are a vital way of sparking new ideas and collaborations. We wanted to recreate the opportunity to have a short, informal, no commitment conversation with someone unexpected whilst standing in the queue for a hot drink at a workshop or university meeting.

In addition, the restrictions of the pandemic meant that many of our researchers had suddenly become very isolated. Early careers researchers in particular were more likely to be living by themselves. There was considerable concern as to what impact this might have on mental health and general welfare. We wanted to help create opportunities for social interaction for our colleagues, as much as professional discussions.

For The Coffee Break, researchers from across the RIS network of Research Pools could sign up for up to three coffee break meetings at a time. We asked them to indicate their preference for which other research pool they would like to be matched with and matched people as enquiries came in. We then helped participants to schedule a call that wasn’t expected to last more than 15 minutes. We did a lightweight follow-up afterwards to see what the outcome was.

We deliberately avoided matching based on anything other than disciplines of interest, so for example, a PhD student in Veterinary Science could be matched to a professor in Computing. The point is that both parties commit 15 minutes of their time to learn about another researcher at any stage of their career, as well as their interests and focus.

Most of the time these conversations lead to absolutely nothing concrete, and that’s as it should be. Not every conversation in the Coffee Break is going to lead to a Horizon Europe application, but there is often a wide range of benefits. Participants might learn about career opportunities (perhaps that first post-doctoral role they’ve been seeking) or somebody is interested in acting as a joint supervisor on a new interdisciplinary PhD project.

Another benefit of a Coffee Break is access to somebody else’s network: the person you are speaking to may not be the right fit for something you are seeking to do, but they may well know someone who is and be willing to match you up themselves. The Coffee Break is therefore a short-term mechanism for strengthening and deepening grass roots networks across institutions and disciplines, providing an infrastructure for the emergence of new collaborations in the longer-term future.

The Coffee Break began as an immediate response to the pandemic. However, we now recognise that the mechanism can have a longer-term role and impact. Hearing from academics who can help in finding new collaborators overseas is really valuable, especially for those early in their career. Armed with this knowledge, SULSA (the Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance) launched the SULSA International Coffee Breaks in 2022. These Coffee Breaks connect researchers between Scotland and Germany and aim to seed new collaborations between the two countries with clear pathways to collaborative mobility and research funding.

We see a scheme that began life as a short-term fix can now have a substantial impact on the grassroots of research for Scotland’s institutions and our ambitions as a global research hub. We also recognised that many of these relationships can form by chance.

SICSA Education – Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge

SICSA is extremely proud to sponsor the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge, taking place on the 18th & 19th October 2022 at cyberQuarter, Abertay University, Dundee.

The Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge is an annual cyber policy and strategy competition where students from across the globe compete in developing policy recommendations tackling a fictional cyber catastrophe.

Now entering its eleventh year globally, the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge is a one-of-a-kind cyber competition designed to provide students from across academic disciplines with a deeper understanding of the policy and strategy challenges associated with management of tradeoffs during a cyber crisis. Part interactive learning experience and part competitive scenario exercise, it challenges students to respond to a realistic, evolving scenario of international cyber crisis, analyze the threat it poses to national, international, and private-sector interests, and provide recommendations on the best course of action to mitigate the crisis. Since its establishment in Washington, DC in 2012, the competition has expanded its reach globally, with regional competitions across the United States, as well as in London, Geneva, Canberra, and Lille.

Through the competition, students have the unique opportunity to interact with expert mentors and high-level cyber professionals while developing valuable skills in policy analysis and presentation. To date, the competition has engaged over one thousand students from universities in the United States, Europe, Indo-Pacific, and the Middle East. It also has received widespread social media attention, with the DC competition in both 2017 and 2018 receiving over 3.5 million impressions on Twitter. Through its unique crisis scenario format, mentorship, recruiting, and networking opportunities, the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge has expanded its global reach, will continue to build on its reputation as a pipeline for the next generation of cyber policymakers, and will continue to grow as a global community of multidisciplinary cybersecurity professionals.

In partnership with Dewar Cyber Consulting Ltd (DCC Ltd), the Scottish Government and Abertay University, this new edition of the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge will take place at the newly launched cyberQuarter in Dundee, Scotland. Students will work together to craft actionable policy recommendations in response to a scenario that examines cyber threats to resilience. This competition is only open to students enrolled in colleges and universities based in Scotland.

Register to join us as a judge at the inaugural Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge in Scotland.

SICSA DVF Seminar Series – Professor Vincenzo Vespri, The University of Florence

Professor Vincenzo Vespri, from The University of Florence is visiting  Stirling University as SICSA Distinguished Visiting Fellow.

He has kindly offered to give the series of seminars below. He will be in Stirling from Sept.19th to Sept. 30th, happy to meet interested

colleagues- short bio sketch below.


IOTA, the blockchain of the near future?


Iota is not a blockchain but it can represent a potential evolution of blockchain technology. It was certainly born too early and faced technological problems too advanced for the technology of the moment (ternary system, post quantum cryptography, overcoming the linear structure of the blockchain with a tangle). But all these technological challenges must be overcome and the experience of IOTA could prove to be very important for the evolution of this technology.

The potential impact of CBDCs on the banking system


The cryptocurrency revolution will have the natural fallout in the creation of CBDCs (Central Bank Digital Currencies) which will have a significant impact not only in the way money is conceived but also in the structure of the financial markets. In this talk, we will talk about the impact that CBDCs will have on central banks poised between maintaining the status quo and taking advantage of the undeniable advantages offered by a digital currency.

The University of Edinburgh

September 27th  – 16:00-17:00

Room:  IF-G.07


Financial markets, how is the best way to simulate them? 


The probability distribution underlying the performance of the financial markets is not a Guassian one. This implies that mathematical methods for describing market trends either do not always describe financial phenomena well or are too complicated to be implemented. One procedure is to study the probability distribution empirically, simulate it and obtain projections of future behaviors using the Montercarlo method. In this talk, we will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of this very practical approach.

The University of Stirling

Room: Cottrell C4B96


Vincenzo Vespri is Full Professor in Mathematics at the University of Florence, previously professor at the University of L’Aquila, Pavia, Milano and Tor Vergata-Rome, as well as visiting professor in various universities in US, Europe, Australia, and South America. His work concerns the existence and the regularity of solution to nonlinear equations arising from Mathematical Physics and the application of Functional Analysis to evolution equations. In the last years the research interests were directed also to Mathematical Models and to applications to Finance, Industrial Mathematics and Blockchains (Cryptography). His research has been published in more than 130 scientific papers.

SICSA Conference 2022

Sustainability, Resilience and Recovery

On the 28th & 29th June 2022 we held our 13th Annual SICSA Conference at Glasgow Caledonian University. This was our first in person event since 2019, with an exciting programme of keynote talks, panel sessions, poster and PhD competitions. The Scottish Informatics & Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) Conference has been an annual event since SICSA began in 2008. It marks a time where PhD students and early-career researchers attending universities all around Scotland get together for a couple of days.

The focus this year was on Sustainability, Resilience and Recovery as we emerge from COVID with our opening Keynote Speaker Stephen O’Neil, Head of Digital Economy and Data Driven Business at the Scottish Government, highlighting the leading role of the new Tech Scalars in driving economic recovery.

The Keynote was followed by the SICSA Education Learning and Teaching Network Launch, that brought together colleagues involved in teaching Computing Science across Scottish Institutions. We also heard from participants in our new Learning & Teaching Scholars Programme, which aims to develop and support early-to-mid career CS academics with a focus on education’.

We continued with the skills sessions for PhD students, co-developed with the Conference PhD Organisation Committee, starting off with a plenary session from the SICSA Peer Support Network on keeping mentally healthy while doing a PhD. The SICSA Peer Support Network (SPSN) is a group of PhD students who completed a mental health awareness course with the aim to provide additional support from within the PhD community. In this session the SPSN volunteers presented an overview of the network, focusing on what it does, how to access it and how we can all contribute to look after our mental health.

The Plenary session was followed by a number of parallel panel sessions and workshops focusing on PhD skills, CS Education and Early Career Researchers, including:

Post-pandemic computing science education
With focus on new approaches to delivering Computing Science Education that have emerged during the pandemic. The session was chaired by Dr Matthew Barr, SICSA Director of Education, joined by Dr Khristin Fabian (Edinburgh Napier University), Dr Hebatallah Shoukry (Herriot Watt University), Dr Mark Zarb (Robert Gordon University), Dr Gule Saman (Heriot Watt University) and Dr Martin Goodfellow (Strathclyde University).

PhD workshop: Intellectual Property Rights
With focus on the issues related to Intellectual Property (IP) Rights and the procedural aspects for how IP from research work may be identified, protected and commercialised. The session was chaired by Dr Andrei Petrovski, SGA Director, with Graham Carter (Robert Gordon University) presenting. 

PhD workshop: Getting the job you want after finishing your PhD
With focus on the 3 different aspects of further employability: Resume Construction, Interview Techniques, and Networking skills. This workshop was led by Robin Huggins, Director of MBN Academy.

PhD workshop: Build your own – Bricolage for Blended Spaces
With focus on the benefits of methodological bricolage, where the researcher tailors tasks, tools, and approaches to understand the subject at hand. This workshop was led by Dr Emilia Sobolewska (Edinburgh Napier University) and Mr Calum Egan (Edinburgh Napier University). 

Early Career Research Panel Session
With focus on different options for PhD graduates who are intending to continue into early career research roles. A wide variety of career steps exist, including going straight into an academic role, an independent research fellowship, a research associate working on a specific project, knowledge transfer, the emerging research software engineering. The session was chaired by Dr Mujeeb Ahmed (University of Strathclyde), joined by Dr Anjana Wijekoon (Robert Gordon University), Dr Elaine Farrow (University of Edinburgh) and Dr Sofiat Olaosebikan (University of Glasgow). 

Careers Fair and Conference Dinner at Merchants House 
The first day of the Conference concluded with a Careers Fair at the Glasgow Merchants House. We were very excited to welcome a number of companies including our sponsors Arista and The DataLab, the start – ups netAI and Crover, and also Huwei, Amazon Development Scotland and Leonardo. The session provided opportunities for PhD students to meet and network with companies in a relaxing and informal way.

As the night came to a closure we moved to the main hall in Merchants House for our Conference Dinner. We were very honoured for the warm welcome to the Conference dinner by Bailie Linda Pike.  Bailie Pike is one of the local councillors for the Calton area of Glasgow and represented the Lord Provost at the Conference Civic Reception.  We would like to thank Bailie Pike and the Lord Provost’s & International Office for their generous support of the PhD Conference.

The Journey from Research to Tech Start-Up
The second day of the Conference started with a panel session on the Journey from Research to Tech Start – up with focus on experiences of a diverse set of innovative and successful start-up founders, exploring their journeys from academia into entrepreneurialism. The session was chaired by our very own Dr Tim Storer, SICSA Deputy Director & Director of KE.  He was joined by Dr Stewart Whiting, Chief Innovation Officer and Co-Founder of Current Health and Dr Kyle White, CEO at VeryConnect membership, CRM and Community Software.  The session was extremely popular and created lots of questions and conversations from our students; they had to opportunity to chat with both Stewart and Kyle afterwards. Thanks to our Speakers for taking the time to join us at the conference.Poster Competition
The Poster Competition at the SCISA PhD Conference is always very popular.  It provides an opportunity for our students of all years to showcase and explain their research to ECR, academic and Industry colleagues throughout the two day event.  This year 28 posters were submitted as part of the poster competition. The judging panel consisted of our academic colleagues and representatives from The DataLab; they were extremely impressed by the quality of presentations, skills, the rigor and innovative research which is evidently taking place from PhD students across Scotland.  The winners, presented with their award certificates and prize vouchers of £250 each by Heather Thompson and Cheryl Stewart from The DataLab, were: 

  • Narinder Kaur,  University of Glasgow – SICSA Best Poster Award 2022 – 1st Year
  • Nurudeen Salau, University of the West of Scotland – SICSA Best Poster Award 2022 – 2nd Year
  • Ashish Upadhyay, Robert Gordon University – SICSA Best Poster Award 2022 – 3rd Year 
  • Liangfei Zhang, University of St Andrews – SICSA Best Poster Award 2022 – People’s Choice
Reverse Viva Session 
This is the first time we have ran this workshop so we were very excited to see how it went.  The idea of the workshop was to give our PhD students a chance to be exposed to the kind of questions and answers they will face in their own vivas when the time comes.  To do this, we invited established academic colleagues to have their own PhD thesis examined by PhD students.  Three parallel workshops covering Artificial Intelligence, Networking & Systems and Theory Modelling and Computation were organised as part of the session. We have received very positive feedback from the session so this will be a definite in next year’s conference schedule.
 A huge thank you to
for putting forward their thesis for “examination” and to the following students who agreed to act as chairs and examiners: 
  • Malavika Suresh, Robert Gordon University
  • Jude Haris, University of Glasgow
  • Otokwala Uneneibotejit, Robert Gordon University
  • Stefano Sarti, University of Stirling 
  • Narinder Kaur, University of Glasgow
  • Alexander Carmichael, University of Stirling 

Per Hammer, Vice-President at JPMorgan Chase and Professor in Practice at the University of Glasgow

For our second Keynote Talk, we were very honoured to have Per Hammer, Vice-President at JPMorgan Chase and Professor in Practice at the University of Glasgow. Per discussed how sustainability affects the Computing Science field. With the aid of the Karlskrona Manifesto, he went over the many aspects in which practitioners should pay attention to sustainability in their work, and how they should use their own morals to keep themselves from becoming complicit in decisions they don’t believe are sustainable. The talk was closed with a discussion involving the students where they were able to enquire about how these recommendations can be applied in practice.

Research Excellence Framework 2021

The Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) welcomes the publication of the 2021 Research Excellence Framework results.  The THE world university rankings table for the UK has also been recalculated on the basis of the 2021 REF and is published today.  For SICSA institutions:

  • 45% of research was world-leading (4*) and 43% internationally excellent (3*).
  • Over 90% of impact is judged outstanding or very considerable.
  • Overall SICSA departments were responsible for over 15% of high-quality research in the UK.
  • Over 70% of Scottish-based researchers entered in REF 2021 are working in Departments that have improved their THE ranking in a competitive and active discipline.

Stuart Anderson (SICSA Director) said:

“The REF 2021 results confirm the strength of Informatics and Computer Science in Scotland with a significant majority of researchers working in departments that have improved their overall ranking.  That SICSA departments contribute 15% of the high-quality research in the UK clearly demonstrates again that Scotland punches far above its weight in the discipline. Scotland has great strengths in this key area for our economy and society. 

This is a tremendous achievement on the part of the staff across all our Scottish departments, my congratulations to all involved in the continuing success of Informatics and Computer Science research in Scotland”.
