Announcement - Call for abstracts, NGS Innovation Forum, Oxfordshire, UK, deadline 10 September

Abstracts are now being accepted for the National Grid Service (NGS) Innovation forum, with a deadline of September 10.

A prize for best poster will be offered with voting performed by delegates at a dedicated poster viewing session on Tuesday evening.

For more details please see the call for abstracts website.

The NGS Innovation Forum itself will be held at STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, UK, on the 23rd – 24th November 2010. The two-day event will showcase the impact that the NGS has had on research in the UK, allow delegates to find out more about using the NGS in applied research, enable IT staff to find out how their institution can benefit from the NGS, and how you can contribute to and influence the future development of the NGS.

Day 1 is primarily aimed at researchers and will feature presentations from existing NGS users that will demonstrate how the NGS has become a powerful research tool in their area. There will be opportunities for delegates to contribute to the event with a breakout sessions during which feedback will be gathered. User tools from the NGS will be demonstrated with real-life use cases directly applicable to researchers. NGS staff will be on hand throughout the event to speak to delegates about how the NGS could aid their research etc and, for existing users, offering up to the minute advice on optimizing your jobs on the NGS.

Day 2 is primarily aimed at those responsible for delivering IT services in their institutions. It will focus on the benefits to an institution of NGS membership and how institutions can get involved with the NGS. There will be presentations on the novel technologies already available on the NGS as well as NGS services such as accounting as well as European developments.

A provisional agenda is available on the event website. Delegates are welcome to attend either one day or both days of the event.
