Who Should Attend

Our NZ eResearch Symposium is a forum for NZ's research sector and nascent eResearch community, being those involved in using, developing, and supporting applications and services that take advantage of distributed collaboration platforms for team science, including grid middleware, high performance computing, data infrastructure, advanced video-conferencing, and advanced research networks.  This is also an opportunity to meet leaders of eResearch initiatives within NZ and internationally, and to hear about best-practice and to share experiences.
