My name is Kevin Smith and I'm applying to retain my XSF membership. The template for this re-app is extracted from my application from last year, which in turn was extracted from the previous year, which was in turn extracted from Johannes Wagener's 2005 page so should hopefully cover all pertinent points; if it doesn't, please contact me over xmpp (kevdadrum@jabber.ex.ac.uk) and I'll ammend this page. My email's required for my app, but I'd rather people contacted me over jabber. If you must use email, my domain is kismith.co.uk, and my user part kevin.

I'm in my mid-twenties, currently living in Exeter, UK. Having now finished my PhD at the University of Exeter, which was a study into Simulated Annealing Techniques for Multi-Objective Optimisation, I'm now working with the University and the ai Corporation researching credit card fraud detection techniques. My BSc degree is in Computer Science (1st class honours), from the same institution. I've been an XSF member since 2005, and a council member since 2006.

I wish to continue doing what I've been doing so far; work with the Psi client, helping define extensions, contributing to discussion of others' extensions and core protocol and continuing with my work on the XSF Council.
