Next Condatis Network meeting – 30th January 2018
We are holding a Condatis network meeting on 30th January 2018, 10:00-16:30. The programme as it stands is below and we have a great selection of talks from Condatis users across a range of topics. We have lots to update you on, including new funding, new software development and new Condatis team members, plus we will be seeking your opinions on how Condatis is developing and what would be helpful for you in the coming year.
There is still time to register and you can either attend in person (at University of Liverpool, travel expenses available if necessary) or online, as we plan to make the main talks sessions available as either a live webinar or recordings to view after the event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to attend, either in person or online.
