TechLink Talks and Seminars

Introduction

Information Services organises seminars and workshops at which attendance is limited to those registered as TechLink support contacts (except where otherwise stated here, or where prior permission has been obtained).

A brief email about new seminars will be sent via the ucam-itsupport@lists.cam.ac.uk mailing list and reminders will be sent shortly before each seminar. If you plan to attend, please follow the signing-up instructions included in the messages. TechLinks who for any reason fail to receive the notification via the list should email

Feel free to email suggestions for topics you think would be valuable to .

The current schedule is, where possible, to offer monthly seminars on the fourth Wednesday of the month. In addition, we have a stream of vendor-presented technical briefs on the second Wednesday of the month.

THE DEFAULT TIME, DAY & VENUE FOR SEMINARS is: 14:15 Wednesday in the Norwich Auditorium, Roger Needham Building, West Cambridge Site.

Techlink Industry Briefs include a lunch provided by the vendor from 13:30. Note that some caterers require a week's notice of numbers so please signing up for these as far in advance as you are able.
