just some of the fields represented in our database.

mining, probability, robotics, education, concurrency
If you want to share
your interests with others, the tick the box labelled
Please put me in touch with people who share
my research interests. In that event, we
send only your name, email and overlapping
interests to people who you might want to work with.

not tick the box. Your data is kept confidential.
Note as of 2011,
this will be a free service as long as it does not
soak up great amounts of support time. Should it
prove to require significant investment of support,
we may mail you asking for a small donation (say
enough to buy us a pizza a month) to keep this going.
