On 20 November 2007, over 100 guests attended the 6th Annual Aberdeen Convention Bureau Ambassador Awards Dinner at the city's Town House. Aberdeen Convention Bureau (which is assisting with accommodation arrangements for ETD 2008) works in partnership with representatives from key industry sectors and academic institutions in the area to secure conferences and provide support for such events. This year The Robert Gordon University was represented amongst the winning Ambassadors by Dr Susan Copeland who received a certificate from the Lord Provost in recognition of securing the 11th International Symposium on Electronic Theses and Dissertations.
The photograph above shows the conference co-Chairs, Christopher Pressler (Director of Research and Learning Resources at The University of Nottingham) and Susan Copeland (Senior Information Adviser (Research) at RGU), with the certificate. Christopher travelled from Nottingham, in central England, to Aberdeen, in the north-east of Scotland, to spend time discussing arrangements for the conference with members of the RGU planning team.
