28 May 2015 - Both ITOC and TACC Workshop programs are now complete and have been posted on the ICSTI Upcoming Events dedicated webpage. The workshops will provide a space for peers to exchange ideas, to build new partnerships, and to hear papers from leading experts from top organisations. We remind you that both are open to ICSTI and non-ICSTI delegates and we encourage you to not only participate in what we believe will be two successful and productive sessions, but also to promote them through your professional networks. It promises to be an informative and enlightening day !
