NeSC has Access Grid Nodes in the e-Science Institute and the e-Science Hub. Both facilities are available to book for genuine e-Science related meetings and conferences.

The Access Grid (AG) is the ensemble of resources that can be used to support human interaction across the grid. It consists of multimedia display, presentation and interactive environments, interfaces to grid middleware, and interfaces to visualisation environments.

The AG complements the computational grid; indeed, the AG node concept is specifically targeted at providing "group" access to the Grid. This access may be for remote visualisation or interactive applications, or for utilising the high-bandwidth environment for virtual meetings and events.
