Call for participants

Let’s Tally! Call Real-Time Polls with your Friends and Help Us with a Study!

We would like to invite you to participate in a pilot study on social influence in real-time, social opinion polls. So we’ve developed a web app and we’re looking for a crowd of people to give it a spin in their cliques.

You can use “Let’s Tally!” with your friends to rate or vote just about anything – in real time. You can use it to decide where to have lunch, which dungeon to raid, or to find the most popular blockbusters in your clique. It’s a bit like doodle, but much more flexible. It’s handy, free to use, and gives you full control over your data. And of course we’re hoping that as many people as possible will sometimes quickly answer the questions after closing the poll. So if you’re willing to help us out with a scientific study, and if you’d like our help in figuring out where to meet your crew, please sign up with your friends at https://www.cambridgeplus.net/ratingtb484/.

We kindly ask you to accept our website’s temporary certificate, since purchasing a professional certificate is not covered by our research grant.

Contact: If you have any questions regarding Let’s Tally or our study, please do feel free to get in touch with Dr. Tobias Berka at tobias.berka@cl.cam.ac.uk.

Study Participation: Participants under the age of 18 require parental/care consent to use the service and participate in the study. The study will run from 30th of January to 17th of April, 2013. Participation is voluntary and participants may withdraw at any time by disabling their profile and/or deleting all associated data.

Ethical Approval: The ethics committee of the Computer Laboratory of the University of Cambridge has approved this study.

Confidentiality and Use of Data: All data provided by the participants will be stored securely on a web server and database operated by and within the premises of the Computer Laboratory of the University of Cambridge. The data will only be used to provide the web application, and in anonymized form for statistical analysis. Beyond the usual operation of the web application, the data set will not be released to anyone outside of the research team. Please consult our website for a more detailed description.

Information about Hall tickets

Some information about Hall tickets

  1. On any day there are 190 tickets available, 180 for Hall, 10 for guest table, except Tuesday and Friday when there are 110 tickets available for Hall, 70 for BA table and 10 for guest table.
  2. Guest Table. The booking cut off for Guest Table will be to 2 days before at 2pm (eg Wednesday 2.00pm for Friday Guest Table). Tickets not used on Guest Table will be made available on the system as soon as possible to Hall (on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday) and BA table (on Tuesday and Friday).
  3. Hall/BA table tickets. Unbooked tickets will be released on demand after 2pm, 2 days before.  The student must come in to the catering office and purchase their tickets immediately as the system can only be amended for a short time and then changed back to avoid affecting future dates.

BA table tickets are basically tickets that are reserved for grads on Tuesdays and Fridays – but if there are still some available 2 days before, undergrads can book them by going to the catering office.

Also, you can now cancel tickets bought on Upay up to 2.00 the day before Hall.

Please click on this link to take the brief survey and be entered into the draw:

Reinvention: Transform and retell the stories you thought you knew.

This workshop will focus on exploring how well-known material can be a source of inspiration and new ideas. From new adaptations of myths and fairytales, to creative approaches to translated texts and visual stimuli, we will discover how nothing is fixed, and everything is up for reinterpretation. We will look at how artists and writers can work together to create new forms of art, playing with structure and genre, and blurring the boundaries between past and present.

Artists should bring a sketchbook, paper and pens as materials will not be supplied.

PLACES ARE LIMITED so email mays@varsity.co.uk to book – please confirm whether you are a writer or an artist in the subject

Saturday 2nd February, 1pm-3pm, Trinity College Old Combination Room, in conjunction with Trinity College Literary Society

local teenagers.

In Tanzania, there is the opportunity to volunteer at Mvumi Secondary
