The Roger Woledge Hackathon Making Sense of Movement with the Virtual Prof

The Roger Woledge Hackathon is an occasion to solve complex problems in a multidisciplinary environment where each member can bring his/her own specialist skills and perspective.

The Roger Woledge Hackathon is an occasion to solve complex problems in a multidisciplinary environment where each member can bring his/her own specialist skills and perspective. The focus is on EMG, kinematics and kinetics. We are sure the collaborative Hackathon experience will be a powerful mechanism to study problematic analysis and yield any minor and maybe some major steps forward in understanding.

During the day you will share your analysis skills and problems, consider different solutions, develop your skills and develop greater insight into motion related issues. We also aim to encourage new connections among UK Universities’ and industry bright scientists and entrepreneur. We will connect researchers, experts, students, analysts, scientists, inventors, business leaders and the coalface crew in an innovative format designed to share expertise and solve problems – on the day, before the day and beyond.

After a short introduction, speed dating between question posers and analysts will help us set the agenda. Then groups will work to respond to the complex issues you will face for about 1.5-2 hours in a series of small groups. Pizza and drinks will be freely available. After the third team building, the groups will present their work to the audience which will vote for the best presentation in an informal contest.

After the closing discourse, stay longer and discuss with the researchers you still have not met with a beer at our local library (the Half Moon Pub).

Many experts will be coming including the following who have confirmed:
1. Dr Glenn Lichtwark – Biomechanics and Muscle Physiology – University of Queensland
2. Dr Monica Daley – Locomotor Biomechanics – Royal Veterinary College
3. Dr Sean Williams – Injury risk statistical modelling – University of Bath
4. Dr Jim Usherwood – terrestrial and aerial locomotion – Royal Veterinary College
5. Dr Adam Shortland – Clinical biomechanics – King’s College London
6. Prof Philip Rowe – Clinical biomechanics – University of Strathclyde
7. Dr Emma Hodson-Tole – Neuromusculoskeletal Integration – Manchester Metropolitan University
8. Dr Dylan Morrissey – Clinical application – Queen Mary University of London

The event requires you to bring your laptop, your data problems and your favourite analysis programmes.
