PROCTORS' REGULATIONS CONCERNING CONDUCT AT
EXAMINATIONS

The Proctors hereby inform members of the University that, with immediate
effect, they have introduced amendments to their Regulations concerning
conduct at Examinations. The purpose of the amendments is to prevent taught-
course candidates from withdrawing from Examinations by deliberately failing
to attend for viva voce examination after completing their written papers. The
Regulations involved are those numbered (iii) and (v) on pages 1068–9 of
Examination Decrees and Regulations, 1999 edition. The new Regulations are
reproduced below, with the amended provisions indicated in italics:

(iii) A candidate may not withdraw from an examination after the written
part of the examination is complete. The point of completion shall be deemed
to be the conclusion of the last paper for which the candidate has entered,
or the time by which a dissertation or other written material is due to be
submitted, whichever is the later. However, a candidate who fails to
appear for a viva voce examination subsequent to the completion of the
written examination will be deemed to have failed the entire examination unless
he or she can, through his or her college, satisfy the Vice-Chancellor and
Proctors that his or her absence was due to illness or other urgent and
reasonable cause
.

(v) A candidate who fails to appear for any part of an examination
other than a viva voce as specified in cl. (iii) above, will be
deemed to have withdrawn from the entire examination unless he or she can,
through his or her college, satisfy the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors that his
or her absence was due to illness or other urgent and reasonable cause.

COMPUTING SERVICES

Use of Cache for World Wide Web

Oxford University generates more incoming Web traffic than any other
university in the country. Taking note of the fact that the University is now
being charged pro rata for this traffic, the IT Committee has expressed grave
concern at the relatively slow take-up of the Web Cache system installed at
OUCS, usage of which has hitherto been voluntary. Use of this cache ensures
that multiple copies of the same page are not fetched independently. The
cache also uses the national Web cache. Currently, no charge is made to the
University for traffic that passes through the national cache, so all calls made
to the local Cache are accordingly free of charge.

The committee has therefore concluded that use of the OUCS cache should be
made compulsory at the earliest possible date, and has agreed that this should
be 1 December 1999. Any attempt after that date to access Web pages without
using the cache may be rejected. A suitable Web page will be returned instead
of the one sought, informing the user what has happened, and providing
instructions on how to use the cache.

This change will not affect access to local Web pages in any way, and will
greatly reduce the cost to the University of accessing pages outside
Oxford.

OUCS will continue to develop techniques that make caching transparent to
users, but for the time being the only reliable method of doing so is to
require users to change the configuration parameters of their Web browser
(the software such as Netscape or Explorer used to access the Web). This is
a simple change, and details of how to effect it are already available from the
Web page http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/proxies/ and from IT Support Officers.

Further details of this arrangement and the background to the decision can
be seen at http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/proxies/compulsory.html.

CIRCULATION OF THE Gazette TO
RETIRED SENIOR MEMBERS OF THE UNIVERSITY

seventy-five who is resident in Oxford may continue to receive the
Gazette, if he or she so wishes, on application in writing to the
Information Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.
Such applications must be renewed at the beginning of each academic year.

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB

Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the University, was established in
1988. The company has been formed to exploit know-how arising out of
research funded by the UK Government through the Research Councils and
funded by other bodies where the rights are not tied. The function of the
company is to ensure that the results of research bring rewards to Oxford,
and to the inventors, who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums and/or royalties for the
use
of know-how arising out of research. Isis also exploits the intellectual
property of the University by setting up individual companies using venture
capital or development capital funds.

Isis' services are also available to individuals who wish to exploit the
results of research supported by non-Research Council sources, when there
are no prior conditions on the handling of the intellectual property rights.
Isis Innovation has at its disposal a small pre-seedcorn fund for paying the
costs of protecting intellectual property rights and for taking work to a stage
where its potential can be assessed.

Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new ideas can be developed
for market requirements. The company has established the Oxford Innovation
Society for major industrial companies, so that they can have a window on
Oxford technology and an opportunity to license and invest where appropriate.

A brochure explaining Isis' activities is available. Please contact the
above address, or the telephone and fax numbers given below.

Members of the University should contact the Managing Director if they
wish to take advantage of the services that Isis provides. (Telephone:
(2)72411; fax: (2)72412.)

HANSEATIC SCHOLARSHIPS 2000

These scholarships have been established by the Alfred Toepfer
Stiftung FVS, the foundation which wishes to reciprocate the Rhodes
Scholarships to Oxford from Germany. The aim of the Foundation is to
promote closer Anglo-German links within a European context. At
present two scholarships are offered each year.

Candidates must be British subjects, and graduate or
undergraduate (final year) members of Oxford University. They should
not have passed their twenty-eighth birthday by 1 October 2000, the
date by which the scholars elected in 2000 will be expected to take
up their scholarships. These are tenable preferably for two years for
study at the University of Hamburg, although the second year may be
spent at another academic institution in Germany. Candidates who wish
to study for one year, preferably at the University of Hamburg, may
also be considered. The successful candidates must undertake research
at doctoral or postdoctoral level or give evidence of a workable
project not connected to a research degree. There is the opportunity
to obtain a German degree.

The value of the scholarships is currently DM 2,000 per month
(for two years) and is subject to regular review. Travel expenses to
and from Hamburg will be paid for by the Foundation. Sufficient
knowledge of the German language is desirable, but when a candidate
does not have a good knowledge of German, he or she is expected to
attend a language course in Germany prior to university entry.

Applications must be sent to the Secretary, Hanseatic
Scholarships, International Office, University Offices, Wellington
Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, by Friday, 18 February. There is no
application form; applications should include: (i) the applicant's
full name and age; (ii) a photograph of the applicant; (iii) a
curriculum vitae, including a statement of the
candidate's extra-curricular activities and interests; (iv) a
programme of the work which the candidate proposes to undertake; (v)
the names of two referees (it is the candidate's responsibility to
ensure that references reach the Secretary by the closing date); (vi)
a certificate from the head of the candidate's college that the
application is made with the approval of the college and that the
applicant is a British citizen.

Those applying for the Michael Foster Scholarship and/or the
Theodor Heuss Fellowship as well as the Hanseatic Scholarship should
submit one application only. Applicants should state which awards
they wish to be considered for.

Interviews will take place in Oxford during February or March
and the decision of the selectors will be announced shortly
thereafter.

QUEEN ELIZABETH SCHOLARSHIP 2000–1

Applications are invited from students studying for a graduate degree
at the University of Oxford for the 2000–1 Queen Elizabeth
Scholarship, tenable at the University of Pennsylvania. Students who

academic year. The scholarship may be held in any subject area
available at the University of Pennsylvania. Information about
programmes offered by the University of Pennsylvania may be consulted
at the International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square,
Oxford.

The scholarship will cover the graduate registration fee,
student health service, and health insurance fees at the University
of Pennsylvania and will provide a grant towards living costs. The
University of Pennsylvania will assist the scholarship-holder to find
accommodation (both on- and off-campus accommodation is usually
available).

There is no application form, but the following information
should be provided: a brief statement of the applicant's academic
career;
a brief description of the work the applicant proposes to undertake
and details of any contact he or she has already had with the
University of Pennsylvania; a letter from the head or senior tutor of
the applicant's college authorising the application; the name of the
applicant's supervisor.

Application should be returned to the International Office. The
closing date for applications is 16 December.

examiners to the provisions of Ch. VI, Sect. ii.c, § 1,

examinations to appoint one of their number to act as Chairman,
to notify the appointment to the Vice-Chancellor, and to publish
it in the University Gazette.

He desires that these appointments shall be notified to the
Clerk of the Schools who will inform the Vice-Chancellor and see

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


Accommodation for Lectures

Hilary Term 2000

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
at the Schools in Hilary Term 2000 could inform the Clerk of the
Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to know
whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one hundred
persons is required; only the three large writing-schools will
accommodate more than that number.

Leave for the use of rooms for lectures will expire at the
end of the seventh week of Hilary Term.

Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection
equipment and 35-mm projectors are available. When these
facilities are required the Clerk of the Schools should be
notified in advance.
