Friday Talks: a new season for 2012

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I am arranging some speakers from across IT Services to start up a new season of the “Friday Tech Talks”. See below for a list of what we have lined up. Anyone in IT Services is welcome to attend and even people from outside the department or even outside the University! If you are not a member of University staff please get in contact so I can confirm it’s OK for you to attend.

The location will be at IT Services R&D/ILRT, 8-10 Berkeley Square.

In the Bergerac Room on the first floor at the back of the building.

Each talk will start at 11am.
