At time of writing the plan is to follow this up with a face to face event in June, and then another virtual event towards the end of the year.  As and when this is confirmed we will let you know.

The Academic Applications Forum provides a forum for discussion of topics related to applications support in the academic environment. Membership is largely, but not exclusively, drawn from Computer Centre staff in the UK University sector. Chest support the Forum and attend all of the meetings, so this Forum provides a valuable means of making them aware of current issues and requirements.
