The awards are given to those whose challenges and achievements deserve recognition and whose thinking has set them apart from the crowd. KITC’s nomination is for the ‘Student project of the year award’ through former student consultant Simon McCarthy.
Simon’s project involved specifying equipment for Rochester Cathedral’s upgrade to their IT System; he also provided staff network support and ensured that the upgrade went smoothly – a role that earned him a personal testimonial from the Right Reverend Adrian Newman, Dean of Rochester Cathedral, thanking him for his attention and dedication to staff needs.
David Soud, Co-ordinator of KITC, said, ‘We are delighted that Simon McCarthy and KITC have been nominated for one of the most sought after awards accreditations in the industry. During his time with KITC, Simon was an outstanding consultant. He always made his clients the first priority, he was hard working, conscientious, an excellent technician and definitely an asset for the KITC.
‘This nomination is also an important acknowledgement of KITC’s role, a key aim of which is to prepare our students to work as IT consultants in industry. This gives them the edge in a very competitive market.’
Launched in October 2005 and based in the Computing Laboratory at the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus, KITC provides high quality, low cost IT support, services and consultancy to SMEs and micro-enterprises in the Canterbury, East Kent and Medway area. The KITC is unique in that its consultants are undergraduate computing students, whose work is mentored and supervised by experienced co-ordinators.
The Computing Awards for Excellence 2006 will take place on 25 October at Battersea Park Events Arena, London.

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
