Empirical Modelling in Thailand
The 3rd International Conference on Knowledge and Smart Technologies was held at Burapha University, Thailand on 8th - 10th July. One of the keynote lectures was given by Steve Russ (Knowing and Computing) and the conference was preceded by a day-long workshop on Introduction to Empirical Modelling. The workshop was led by two former PhD students from Warwick Jaratsri Rungrattanaubol and Antony Harfield now both lecturing at Naresuan University, Thailand. The Dean of the Faculty of Informatics at Burapha is Dr Suwanna Rasmequan who also gained her PhD from the Empirical Modelling research group at Warwick.

Following the conference Steve gave lectures and presentations at Chulalongkorn University, Thammasat University, Sirindhorn Institute of Technology, Naresuan University and the British Chamber of Commerce in Bangkok. A further workshop on Empirical Modelling is planned in Thailand for November 2011.
