Quick catch up from the NGS

Although it may have been quiet on the NGS blog, it's been a rather busy time here at the NGS. Last week was spent exhibiting at the Higher Education Academy Conference. We were located by many of the JISC services exhibition stands and a "treasure trail" with a prize of a laptop ensured there was a steady stream of visitors to the NGS stand. Many people we talked to were not familiar with the NGS so it was good to reach out to a whole new audience.

A quick reminder that you can still register for the Advanced Distributed Services Summer School which will be held on the 7-11th of September. The course is aimed at developing the skills of those providing computational support for researchers from a wide range of disciplines. More information about the course can be found on the website.

The NGS is looking for user / research conferences to attend in the UK. If you are attending or organising a UK conference then please let us know! We are interested in sponsorship opportunities where we can give a presentation and / or have an exhibition stand. Please either leave a comment or email the NGS liaison officer (gillian.sinclair (at)
