NeIC All Hands 2015

From neicext
Jump to: navigation, search


A NeIC All Hands Meeting (AHM) is planned for 27.-30. January, 2015 at Skeikampen, Norway. The intended participants of the AHM are personnel engaged in NeIC operations or projects. If convenient, meetings of project steering groups, reference groups and stakeholder fora can be co-located. The NeIC AHM will have an inward-looking focus, in contrast to the planned NeIC 2015 Conference which is an outreaching event.

The detailed content of sessions will include a mix of plenary sessions and smaller parallel meetings.

The program will include a major component of social networking, attempting to mitigate the effects of the completely distributed nature of NeIC and facilitate excellent working relations. The concept is inspired by the Norwegian Research Council funded Winter Schools in eScience, which have been run successfully since 2000.

Practical Information

The NeIC All Hands 2015 was evaluated as a very successful event by the participants. The evaluation report is available here:
