Looking back at All Hands / IEEE e-Science 2009
Last December Oxford played host to the 2009 UK e-Science All Hands Meeting and the 5th IEEE International Conference on e-Science. This was the first time that the two events took place consecutively in a single venue, the logistics of which were organised by a team here at the Oxford e-Research Centre.
The varied programme included a selection of speakers from throughout the e-research community delivering a wide-ranging collection of keynotes, workshops and themed sessions and was a great success. Each event also featured a poster session and a stimulating panel discussion, while the All Hands Meeting included the presentation of the first ever Tony Hey Student Paper Prize.
Outside of the main agenda a range of social activities were well attended, including a drinks reception at the University's Natural History Museum, set among spectacular specimens including a 40ft Tyrannosaurus Rex and the the most complete remains of a single dodo to be found anywhere in the world.
