    OXFORD UNIVERSITY COMPUTING SERVICES: ELECTRICAL SHUT-DOWNS

    The University Surveyor's department is currently carrying out the five-yearly inspection of all the electrical circuits in the OUCS building. This inspection is required by law.

    The remaining phases of the work will require the shutting-down of the main electrical switchboard, and each of the computer-room power distribution boards. This will affect all central services.

    It is planned to carry out this work on the weekend of 30 November, with power being switched off early on the Saturday morning, and restored on the Sunday evening. To avoid the intolerable level of disruption which would be caused by a shut-down of this length to the University's network provision, an alternative supply has been arranged to cover the most vital equipment. This will include the Janet connection, the FDDI routers, and the mailers (which also act as name servers). It is not intended to preserve power to any other equipment, for which a loss of service would have limited or localised effect, for example the Web servers and the news server.

    There will be brief interruptions to the essential services listed above on the Friday evening, as they are transferred to the alternative supply, and later when they are transferred back, but this should take only a few minutes in each case.

    It will not be possible to provide alternative power sources for the larger services such as Sable, Ermine, Vax, HFS, and OLIS, and so these will be down for the whole period. While Sable, Ermine, and Vax are down users will not have access to mail-boxes held on those machines, either directly or through Simeon, Eudora, etc.

    These proposals are felt to represent the best arrangements that can be made within the various constraints and legal requirements applying both to the OUCS and the Surveyor's department. It is not possible to predict to any degree of accuracy when power will be restored on the Sunday, although as any further information comes to light it will be made available.

    Enquiries about these arrangements should be directed to Alan Gay of the OUCS (e-mail: alan.gay@oucs.ox.ac.uk).

    McDONNELL--PEW CENTRE FOR COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE

    An award from the McDonnell--Pew Program in Cognitive Neuroscience, based in the United States of America, has funded the establishment of a Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience at the University. It started in 1990 and is currently funded until the end of 1997. The centre links work on many aspects of brain research relevant to human cognition in several departments at Oxford and other institutions.

    The McDonnell--Pew Centre encourages work in all areas of cognitive neuroscience across all relevant disciplines and embraces research on experimental, theoretical, and clinical studies of perceptual analysis, memory, language, and motor control, including philosophical approaches to cognition.

    The centre offers several forms of support:

    • Research fellowships and graduate studentships, which are separately advertised from time time;
    • Visiting fellowships, to contribute to the costs of short-term visits from distinguished researchers from overseas;
    • Seminar programme;
    • Workshops, for the planning of collaborative research;
    • Network grants, to cover the costs of exchange visits for collaboration with laboratories elsewhere in the world, especially in Europe and North America;
    • Research support fund, providing small grants for pilot projects, etc.;
    • Travel fund, especially for costs of visits to other laboratories or to training courses to learn new techniques.

    Anyone wishing to join the mailing list of the centre should contact Lesley Court, Administrative Secretary, McDonnell--Pew Secretariat, University Laboratory of Physiology, Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT (telephone: Oxford (2)72497).
