Communication networks beyond the capacity crunch

There will be a Royal Society discussion meeting – this is information from Jenna Lane at the Royal Society:

Discussion Meeting: Communication networks beyond the capacity crunch

11 – 12 May 2015 The Royal Society, London

Satellite meeting: Communication networks beyond the capacity crunch – further discussion 13 – 14 May 2015 The Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, home of the Kavli Royal Society Centre, Buckinghamshire

The satellite meeting at is intended to be a more focused discussion of the issues raised during the London discussion meeting, and possible solutions. The organisers intend that many of the talks at the satellite meeting will be given by early-career researchers and we have recently opened a call for proposals for short talks and posters to be presented at this meeting. I would be very grateful if you could share this information with any relevant colleagues – both in the UK and overseas, to encourage applications. The call closes on 6 February.

More information on how to apply is available on the meeting webpage, and the Royal Society is able to offer travel and accommodation support to participants selected to make a full presentation.

UNISON EPSRC Photonics Network final meeting

The final meeting of the UNISON Photonics Outreach Network, funded by EPSRC, was held yesterday in London.  Themes for a possible follow-on network were discussed.  NIRVANA and other projects funded by the TI3 call were briefly outlined, and those involved in these projects who were present, looked forward to a coordination meeting.
