Busy time at the NGS

It's been rather busy here at the NGS for the last month or so hence the lack of posts. Well I should say that I've been busy so I haven't been posting!

Conference preparations really are in full swing for next weeks AHM 2008 in Edinburgh. I've been running around organising demos for the NGS exhibition booth (No.13 in Appleton Tower) and we've got some new interesting demos for you to come and see from geodemographic modelling to how the NGS is helping to treat cancer.
We're also involved in several workshops including "Infrastructure Provision for ‘Grids’, Infrastructure for Users" which I'm organising along with Andrew Richards. This workshop has an interesting range of papers so it would be good to see you there!

I've also finalised preparations for the workshop that I'm organising at the EGEE conference in Istanbul at the end of September. Entitled "Beating the drum: your trials, tribulations and tips for successful grid dissemination", this workshop will look at ways and means of telling people about the grid be they academic users or business users.

In other news the new edition of the NGS newsletter, NGS News, is out now. If you won't be at AHM 2008 or EGEE you can download a copy from our website.

See you next week in Edinburgh!
