Announcement - NGS Innovation Forum '09, London, UK

If you’d like to learn more about the United Kingdom’s National Grid Service, you’ll have the chance this October at the NGS Innovation Forum ’09.

NGS provides both grid and cloud computing resources and support to academics involved in research based in the UK. At Innovation Forum ’09, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about NGS – including how to get started using it.

The event website states:

    The first day is aimed primarily at researchers and will give an introduction to the NGS along with presentations by current NGS users demonstrating how the NGS has helped their research and the benefits they have gained. There will also be plenty of opportunity for networking and gathering feedback from delegates through a variety of breakout sessions covering topics such as research communities, data handling, user support, software licensing and site integration with the NGS. Further suggestions are welcome!

    The second day is aimed primarily at IT services and support providers with sessions on institutional joining of the NGS and the benefits it brings, the technology available from the NGS, information on our Campus Champions programme and outreach methods as well as presentations on the future of NGS and cloud technology. Again there are discussion slots to allow for feedback from the delegates.

The forum takes place 21-22 October at the Magic Circle Headquarters in London; attendees are welcome to attend either or both days.
