I could not have been more proud of my four PhDs presenting at IEEE ISTAS10. I could not have hoped for a more hardworking group of research students. Anas, Roba and Jennifer received their PhDs a few years ago now, and Alex is at the final stages of writing up (he was a few days into his PhD when he presented at ISTAS)! Among the remaining highlights were my two Social Impact of Technology students, Haralambos and Belinda who presented on emerging location based social networking apps. Belinda accompanied me to a lecture delivered by Professor Kevin Warwick at the University of Sydney a few months before ISTAS-- and these third year students could well have gone into research had they not been snapped up by industry. Looking back, I reflect on the professionalism of all my students.
