We’ve received more than thirty registrations from all over the world and are expecting to see great talks and to have fruitful hands-on sessions and discussions!
The workshop will take place in BTC.B33 in the Bedson Teaching Centre at 9.00AM on Monday, June 18. Please collect your conference badge in Newcastle University’s Herschel Building and try to arrive around 5 minutes before the workshop begins.
For the practical sessions, each attendee will be assigned to a group of 5 people where they will come up with and implement a Kinect application. One or two Kinect for Windows devices will be provided to each group but we need you to bring your own laptop. So, if you have a Windows laptop, please install “Visual Studio 2010 (C#)” and the latest “Kinect for Windows SDK” and “Kinect for Windows Developer Toolkit” and bring it along to the workshop.
You can download Visual Studio 2010 Professional from www.dreamspark.com if you are affiliated with a university. Otherwise, please install Visual C# 2010 Express. The Kinect SDK and Developer Toolkit can be found at www.kinectforwindows.org
Don’t hesitate to ask if you have a question!
We wish you a safe trip and see you in Newcastle very soon!
