The Challenge of Convergence

Convergence Community Session 10th July 2003

A session within the IMA Vision, Video, and Graphics International Conference 2003. This is an opportunity to explore:

  • Opportunities for convergence to happen both within the UK, the EU and internationally.
  • How to bring people together
  • How we might take convergence forward
The EPSRC has a range of mechanisms to support the development of research at this convergence. We would encourage consideration of
  • A Convergence Network
  • Summer Schools to train postgraduate students (& others) at the convergence
  • Overseas travel grants and visiting fellowships
