As the NGS outreach officer, I was particularly interested in the outreach / communication sessions. The session names say it all really –
- Communications between computer scientists and scientists that use computers
- How to talk to scientists?
- Best practices for software development in research community
- Tracking customer requirements
I can honestly say it was one of the most productive meetings I have ever attended with a great deal of productive discussion and long term collaborations planned. It’s not often you come out of a meeting with such a large number of people with concrete tasks and plans for the future!
