eResearch NZ 2017 | Recap
Hosted in Queenstown in February by NZ Genomics with cohosts REANNZ and NeSI, eResearch NZ 2017 was a resounding success. 170 attendees came together from the research community around New Zealand and the globe to discuss the theme of "Shaping the Digital Future; Opportunities for Australia & NZ Science Communities."
Minister for MBIE, Paul Goldsmith (pictured above), attended the glittering gala dinner and gave a keynote address, highlighting the importance of science and research to New Zealand.
The NeSI team gave thirteen presentations over the three-day event, ranging from "NeSI’s role in the evolution of NZ eResearch" to "Application Management on a National HPC Facility using an Open Source Framework."
Our Director, Nick Jones, led a panel discussion on "Leading the digital transformation of research, an institution at a time" as well as "Building Communities to Support Data Driven Research" with NeSI's Research Communities Manager Aleksandra Pawlik.
