The IoC series of talks aim to bring together Computer Science and Software Engineering students and industry practitioners - for the benefit of both. Speakers will mainly be industry practitioners; typically focused on their personal experiences with the aim of increasing the audience's understanding of their industry and its context.

Speakers are encouraged to educate and inspire the audience with real life accounts of working within industry, as well as innovative and exciting use of software and/or hardware technologies.

Talks are also expected to be of interest to other industry practitioners and networking time will be available after the talks. Academics are also welcome to attend.
