      ADVISORY PANEL ON HARASSMENT


      Annual Report 1994–5

      In 1994–5 the Advisory Panel on Harassment has continued its
      work of reviewing the University's policy on harassment and of
      providing advice and guidance to the victims of harassment and to the
      University harassment advisers, and advice and guidance to people
      accused of harassment. In the course of the year the panel provided a
      programme of short discussion sessions for University Harassment
      Advisers. College advisers were also invited to attend. In total
      fifty-three university advisers and eight college advisers attended
      two-hour sessions. The panel hopes to resume these sessions when the
      new Equal Opportunities Officer is in post.

      As in previous years, the panel carried out a survey of
      harassment advisers, the results of which are appended. All
      university advisers were asked, and college advisers registered with
      the panel were invited, to return reports indicating the ways in
      which the existence and identity of advisers were made generally
      known within their institution; and, if they had been approached for
      help in their capacity as advisers, to give anonymised reports
      outlining the basic characteristics of the complaint or inquiries
      they had dealt with during the year. Advisers were also invited to
      indicate any particular problems which they had encountered in
      attempting to deal with the complaints.

      Returns were received from seventy departments, faculties, and
      other university institutions (out of eighty-six circulated) and from
      twenty-two colleges and societies. Members of the panel made similar
      returns.

      The returns only relate to matters brought to the attention of
      advisers, and therefore cannot be taken to provide a complete view of
      experience of harassment within the University. In particular, the
      panel understands that a large number of complaints were made to the
      Welfare Officers at OUSU. Although the panel does not have details of
      these complaints, the information available does nevertheless supply
      some insight as to how the University's, and to a lesser extent
      colleges', advisory machinery is being used, and with what effect.
      The survey shows a figure similar to that of 1993–4, with a
      slight increase in the numbers directed to the panel, and a decrease
      in those seeking advice direct from departmental advisers.

      In Trinity Term the panel received an interim discussion paper
      from the Committee to Review Disciplinary Procedures to which it has
      responded in detail. The panel was particularly interested to read
      the Zellick Report on student disciplinary procedures and has
      expressed some concern as to the approach adopted by the task force,
      particularly in relation to students who do not wish to pursue
      criminal proceedings, but are none the less anxious that the
      university or college disciplinary mechanism should provide them with
      some redress. In Michaelmas Term, the panel arranged for Ms Sue
      Ashtiany, a local solicitor, to give a presentation to the panel on
      the legal issues underpinning the consideration of harassment. It was
      particularly noted in the course of the discussion that it is
      unsatisfactory that the University's code and regulations define
      harassment differently. The panel hopes that the forthcoming review
      of the working of the code of practice on harassment will address
      this issue.

      3 The totals of the corresponding lines in the
      second and third tables are different from each other, and from the
      corresponding figures in the third table, because in some cases the
      request was made by more than one person or related to alleged
      harassment by more than one person.

      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).

      DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING SCIENCE


      Computer-Aided Design Workstation

      The University has purchased a Silicon Graphics Indigo II workstation
      with the Extreme graphics option. This workstation is used to provide
      access for members of the University to the SDRC-IDEAS CAD package
      which is licensed by the Department of Engineering Science.

      IDEAS (Integrated design engineering and analysis system) is a
      package for design, analysis, and manufacture of mechanical
      components. At the core of the system is a sophisticated solid
      modeller which enables creation and visualisation of three-
      dimensional representations of objects.

      The solid modeller is used as the basic input for a number of
      other modules (including finite element modelling, mechanism design,
      machining, and drafting). The approach adopted is that the user
      should build a solid model of the component, then carry out analysis
      tasks using that geometry (e.g. a stress analysis). The integration
      means that the basic geometry only needs to be input once.
      Modifications can be readily made if the analysis reveals that they
      are appropriate.

      Once the design has been finalised, working drawings can be
      produced with very little effort from the solid model. The geometry
      can also be used to produce instructions for CNC machines so that
      manufacture of complex components can be easily accomplished.

      Besides being of immense use in the design of components, IDEAS
      has become an industry standard solid modeller for several other
      major advanced IT software packages unrelated to CAD. It is
      anticipated that there would be considerable interest in the use of
      IDEAS for some of these other applications, as well as the purely CAD
      application.

      Use of the package is supported primarily by members of the
      Department of Engineering Science's EDPG (Engineering Design and
      Projects Group) with assistance from members of the academic staff
      where appropriate.

      Each department wishing to use the package will be asked to
      nominate one person to act as a primary contact for that
      department.

      Anyone considering the application of the IDEAS package to a
      project may discuss the matter with the EDPG (e-mail:
      ideas.support@eng.ox.ac.uk). Enquiries about user registration and
      booking of the workstation should be addressed to:
      ideas.booking@eng.ox.ac.uk.

      The ORS Awards Scheme for Overseas Research Students, established by
      the Department for Education and administered by the Committee of
      Vice-Chancellors and Principals, provides awards for the partial
      remission of tuition fees to overseas postgraduate students
      registered for research degrees at UK academic institutions. The only
      criteria for the awards are outstanding merit and research potential;
      other factors, such as means, nationality, and proposed field will
      not be taken into account by the national ORS Committee. The value of
      each award is the difference between the 1996–7 univesity
      tuition fee for a UK/EU postgraduate student and the rate chargeable
      to an overseas postgraduate student for his/her particular course of
      study.

      Further information and application material for the 1996 ORS Scheme
      at the University may be obtained from the International Office,
