NGS Innovation Forum '08 - places are going fast!

It's been a busy couple of weeks here at the NGS. Many of us attended the EGEE conference in Istanbul where, as well as the conference, we were also involved in EGI and other project meetings. Thankfully most of us had arranged to stay on couple of days so we could actually see something of Istanbul rather than the inside of the conference centre!

The presentations from the workshop I organised on Dissemination and Outreach can now be found online and I'd like to take the opportunity to thank my speakers Sy Holsinger from Trust-IT Services and Vicky Huang from AGSC. During EGEE '08 I also got what I call "podded" as I was filmed for a podcast during which I talked about the NGS. I haven't actually been brave enough to watch it yet but if anyone is interested it can be found here.

On return from the conference it was straight back into preparations for the NGS Innovation Forum which is quickly approaching. If you have no idea what I'm talking about then all the information can be found on our website. The agenda is almost finalised and we have a fantastic line up of speakers talking about the latest developments for users at the NGS, use case scenarios for NGS resources and where the NGS is heading in the future. Registrations are coming in thick and fast so if you are thinking about coming along, register soon!
