It is often difficult to attract graduates to apply
for a PhD, so I'm working on a poster to promote the
Distributed Systems and Mobile Agents research group.
Past of the problem is that it is not advertised and
promoted well enough. We've all seen the excellent
recruitment campaigns for graduate recruitment, but
academia often does try to complete against this.
Thus I've drafted a few ideas here, to see which one
works best. You must remember that the large corporations
have professional graphic designs, and large advertising
budgets, so my attempt will be no where near as good

of our previous graphics:
which I like a great deal. It has a catchy image,

What do you
I quite like it. I think it even looks quite
good in a small version. In general, it's nice
and simple, but effective. Next we need to design
it as a WWW page:
PhD Opportunity in
re you interesting in doing a PhD in the School
of Computing at Napier University? Then, why
not consider the Distributed Systems and Mobile
Agents research group? The current research
Intelligent intrusion detection.
New algorithms for enhanced security.
Technology. New networking models using
static and mobile agents.
Computing. New models for mobile computing.
Creation of models for reusable and distributed
Which isn't a good as the proper graphic layout,
but it's acceptable. So let's try a few other designs.
Perhaps they can be used as a basic theme:
and with another agent:
Finally we can view the posters as a Flash movie:
