AHM 2002: Getting to know you


Dear e-Science collaborators,

The first e-Science All-Hands meeting will be held on Monday through Wednesday, September 2-4, 2002, at the Sheffield Hallam Conference Centre. We’d like to see you there. The theme of this meeting is ‘Getting to Know You’.

The goal of the meeting is to share information on e-Science projects in all disciplines in the UK and to build connections and bridges within our e-Science community.

Beginning at lunchtime on Monday 2 September and ending at lunchtime on the Wednesday, we aim to create a forum for discussion and sharing of ideas. A conference dinner will be held on Tuesday evening at the Holiday Inn Royal Victoria.

The core of the meeting will be presentations by groups from throughout the UK who are active in e-Science projects – Research Council pilot projects, e-Science centre industrial projects, IRC projects and others. A poster session and demonstrations will also feature.

The schedule will include a number of invited speakers including international leaders in the field.

Registration for the three day event is free. You will need to fund your own travel arrangements and accommodation – details of how to book your accommodation are available from this page.

I would like to encourage you to submit a paper for either oral or poster presentation. The call is now open and the closing date for submission is 12 July 2002 – see the submission guidelines.

See you in Sheffield!

Tony Hey

Director, e-Science Core Programme
