Lunch Hour Lectures on Tour - 2012 - Audio
During June 2012, UCL’s free, public, Lunch Hour Lectures will be uprooted from their usual residence at UCL and go on tour to The British Museum. This summer series of four Lunch Hour Lectures will feature introductions by British Museum curators, and discuss: new discoveries in Neanderthal excavations; why anyone would want to visit museum collections online; how the smell of historical objects can reveal new information; and how putting artworks under the microscope can help us re-evaluate our knowledge of important pieces.

Entering the Ecological Age: Resource Efficient Cities - video
In the last 18 months Peter Head has visited 23 countries discussing a transition from the industrial model of city development to an ecological one based on efficient use of renewable resources, including energy. He will present both retrofit and new development scenarios which are emerging, and his analysis, based on evidence of real examples of best practice, makes an economic case for rethinking forms of cities to enable human development to flourish. Peter Head is a Senior Director at Arup, one of the world's most successful engineering and planning consultancy companies, with over 10,000 staff in 37 countries. Peter is a civil and structural engineer who has become a recognized world leader in major bridges (he received an OBE for successfully delivering the Second Severn Crossing as Government Agent), advanced composite technology and now in sustainable development in cities. He has won many awards for his work including the Award of Merit of IABSE, the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Silver Medal and the Prince Philip Award for Polymers in the Service of Mankind. He was appointed in 2002 by the Mayor of London as an independent Commissioner on the London Sustainable Development Commission and leads the planning and development sub-group of the Commission. He joined Arup in 2004 to create the Planning and Integrated Urbanism team, which he directs from London. This lecture is a summary of the prestigious Brunel lecture for the UK Institution of Civil Engineers.
IOCCG Summer Lecture Series 2012
The International Ocean Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG) organized the first IOCCG Summer Lecture Series dedicated to high level training in the fundamentals of ocean optics, bio‐optics and ocean colour remote sensing. This was a 2‐week intensive course that took place from July 2nd – 14th at the Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche (LOV), Villefranche‐sur‐mer, France. A total of 13 renowned lecturers were invited to teach at the course and 17 students from 13 different countries took part in the course (see Appendix 1 ‐ List of Training Course Participants). More than 100 students had applied to participate in the course and the 17 remaining applicants were primarily chosen with respect to their motivation and on the basis of their academic background. The majority of them were PhD students and post‐Docs, and some were starting their careers as young researchers. The participants came from a broad range of backgrounds, but all were familiar with at least some domains of ocean colour science and had a solid understanding of ocean colour remote sensing.

Environment: Lake Baikal - for iPod/iPhone
Should natural resources be exploited to support economic development? In Siberia, Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world and contains one fifth of the world’s freshwater. It has developed over 25 million years to be a truly unique eco-system - yet this lake is now an environment at serious risk. This album focuses on the growing environmental threats to the region, which was named a World Heritage Site in 1996. Industry and new businesses flocked to the once-isolated region, inducing massive economic growth, but at what cost to the natural habitat? On top of this threat, the invasion of alien species and rising water temperatures due to global warming throw up questions, conflicts and challenges about sustainable development and how we are to manage the consequences of our actions responsibly. This material forms part of the course U216 Environment.

Potsdamer Wissenschaftsforum "Exzellenz-Netzwerk der Disziplinen" (2009) - Created with tele-TASK - more than video! Powered by Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI).
Das HPI sieht sich nicht nur als anerkannten Teil der deutschen Informatiklandschaft, sondern auch als vitalen wissenschaftlichen Akteur am Standort Potsdam. Deshalb haben wir unser 10-jähriges Jubiläum zum Anlass genommen, unsere Potsdamer Wissenschafts“nachbarn“ zu einem Potsdamer Wissenschaftsforum einzuladen. Gemeinsam haben wir sowohl die wissenschaftlichen Entwicklungen der letzten 10 Jahre Revue passieren lassen als auch einen Ausblick auf die in den kommenden 10 Jahren zu erwarteten wissenschaftlichen Herausforderungen im jeweiligen Arbeitsgebiet der einzelnen Einrichtungen am Wissenschaftsstandort Potsdam gewagt: Welche waren die wichtigsten Errungenschaften der letzten 10 Jahre in der Forschung der verschiendenen Fachgebiete und Institutionen? Welche Meilensteine sollen in den kommenden 10 Jahren erreichen werden und wo könnten die Einrichtungen im Jahre 2019 stehen?
Softwaretechnik II (WS 2010/11) - Created with tele-TASK - more than video! Powered by Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI).
The software industry is more and more pushed towards fast time-to-market and short development cycles. Putting it in other words, if a piece of software is not finished at a certain point in time, it can have negative effects on the companies performance. Given the fact that a team is limited to a certain number of people and can thus only build a product of a (relatively) fixed size, multiple teams have to collaborate and work on large software projects together. This, of course, leads to a certain overhead. In Software Engineering 2, you shall learn how to conduct software development in two large groups of about 50 people. We want to prepare you for a situation where you are in a leading position and responsible for a large piece of software. Thus, you shall learn methods, concepts, and technologies that help you to successfully deliver large software in a multiple team setting.
