Conference success


The Association of Technical Staff in Psychology annual conference hosted at Staffordshire University was another fantastic event this year.

The event program once again was full of diverse and interesting talks, presentations and opportunities to network with colleagues from across the country.

The conference closed with the exciting news that one of our techniciains, Martyn Atkins claimed the Keith Nicholson Memorial Prize presented annually at Conference for best talk during the meeting.  His subject ‘Gesture Recognition and 3D Skeletal Analysis with Microsoft Kinect v2’ drew praise for the quality of content, interactive nature and for bringing something interesting and new to the forum.

This is the second year in a row that the office have won the prize with Anthony’s ‘An Introduction to the Benefits of Arduino in Psychology Research’ scooping the prize last year at Edinburgh Napier, showing the quality in depth we have hear at Plymouth.  Fingers crossed for the hat-trick at next years conference.
