And relax

This time of year is always a bit quiet and it's an ideal opportunity to catch up on things and to get organised for the forthcoming conference season.

At the moment I've mainly been focusing on the organisation of the NGS Innovation Forum which will be held in November at STFC RAL.

One of the main new features of the IF will be a poster session on the Tuesday night which will enable NGS users to demonstrate how they have used NGS resources in their work. We're currently calling for abstracts and we'd like to strongly encourage all NGS users to submit a 200 word abstract for the event. There will also be a prize for the best poster as voted for by the delegates on the day.

Deadine for abstracts is the 10th of September!

I have also been busy confirming speakers so announcements will start appearing in the fortnightly email bulletin and on the website so keep an eye out on those! First announcement tomorrow (Friday) just to keep you all in suspense...
