What's happening to Payments?

Oxford e-Research Centre

13 Sep 2018
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Tim Lambertstock

The way we pay for things is changing. The use of Contactless now exceeds cash, cheques are now cleared with images and crypto currencies are being talked about as the future. This talk will review recent and future developments in payments from both a business and technology perspective.

Tim is Programme Manager for Payments and Cards at Handelsbanken. He was involved in the development of the main UK payment systems and has consulted in the payments and cards area.

The BCS Oxfordshire branch is actively looking to expand our current committee membership. If you have ever considered helping shape the development of this branch now is the time to step forward. We are particularly interested in those with a keen interest in expanding the recognition of diversity within the branch and ensuring we have representation across the broad spectrum of our membership roster.

Note also that playing an active role in a professional body such as BCS is a useful addition to your CV.

If you are interested just drop us at note using the Contact Form.

This project is an IET/IMechE-funded robotics holiday club for 11-15 year olds living in areas of high socio-economic deprivation in Oxford.  Throughout the week, participants will learn to program a BBC microbit then design and build their own robot to follow a winding path. At the end of the week, they’ll then get to take their robot home. They will also attend visits to engineering companies and organisations, to show the range of opportunities available within engineering, and the different routes to a career.

We are looking for a diverse group of volunteers to help with the workshops throughout the week.  Training, lunch and agreed travel expenses will be provided.

The current structure for the week is detailed below; please note that this may change, so do let us know any dates that you would be available.

  • Monday 13th August: Programming workshop & industry visit
  • Tuesday 14th August: CAD workshop & industry visit
  • Wednesday 15th August: Soldering workshop & industry visit
  • Thursday 16th August: Programming workshop & industry visit
