Webinar information

Professor Bob John, Automated Scheduling, Optimisation and Planning Group (ASAP), University of Nottingham, United Kingdom 

This webinar will be given by Bob John who has led two highly successful computational intelligence research groups ( and for more than 12 years. He will give his personal views, based on his experiences, of what's needed to become an academic. Although based in the United Kingdom the points he makes will broadly translate to other countries. He will discuss your best strategies for producing publications, the role of networking, looking for funding and generally how to get on the academic career ladder. 

Speaker's Biography:
Bob has a BSc Mathematics, a MSc in Statistics and a PhD in Fuzzy Logic. He worked in industry for 10 years as a mathematician and knowledge engineer developing knowledge based systems for British Gas and the financial services industry. Bob spent 24 years at De Montfort University in various roles including Head of Department, Head of School and Deputy Dean. He led the Centre for Computational Intelligence research group from 2001 until 2012. He has over 150 research publications of which about 50 are in international journals. Bob joined the University of Nottingham this year where he heads up the Automated Scheduling, Optimisation and Planning (ASAP) research group in the School of Computer Science. The ASAP research group carries out multi-disciplinary research into mathematical models and algorithms for a variety of real-world optimisation problems. ASAP has 8 academic staff, 9 researchers and over 30 PhD students.

Only limited seats are available. Please register as soon as possible. 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
