Kent IT Clinic shortlisted for major IT industry award

26.09.2006
The Kent IT Clinic (KITC) has been shortlisted for the VNU Business Publications Ltd Computing Awards for Excellence 2006.

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.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
