The National e-Science Centre is requesting proposals for workshops and meetings that aim to support and extend the e‑Science development community. Examples of currently planned NeSC events include workshops on “Agent-based Grid Computing” and “Models for a sustainable National Grid Service”, workshops on campus grids and on community requirements, and also project-specific meetings.

NeSC will make all the local arrangements using our established team and procedures. In addition to the meeting rooms, we provide on-line registration for delegates, wireless networking and help arranging accommodation. We will publicise the event via our web site and newsletter. Our web site will provide means for disseminating the results of workshops – 3.5GB of our reports are downloaded daily by users across the world. We can also publish workshop reports in the UK e‑Science technical report series.

For a limited number of events, NeSC can contribute to the catering costs. To qualify for this support, an event must demonstrate that it benefits a broad community (more than a single project) and promote generic technology or methods. The NeSC management will decide which events to support in this way.

Other events will be hosted on a cost-recovery basis. NeSC will provide the usual support from our events team. However, we will have to charge for catering, either to the event organizers or by charging a fee for delegates.

If you are thinking of running a workshop, initial enquiries should be made by emailing lee@nesc.ac.uk to check on availability. Each proposal should state the aim of the event, the intended audience, and who will organise the event programme. Proposals will then be reviewed by the NeSC management team.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Dave Berry ( daveb@nesc.ac.uk ).
