UCISA2015 Conference: 18-20 March, Edinburgh

UCISA2015 Conference: 18-20 March, Edinburgh

Edinburgh will be the place to be for IT leaders in IT from HE for UCISA15. We have booked a range of stimulating and high quality speakers addressing many of the issues we are all facing, as well as giving an insight into in areas that may not be familiar, but will hopefully provide you with food for thought.

There will be plenty of time to network with your peers and valued partners, and the Programme will also include the popular Business and University Showcases which, this year, will be addressing the challenges we as a sector identified as being our top priorities. There will also be a formal Poster session with the opportunity to chat to colleagues about achievements and good practice in a variety of areas. Alongside this, we host the largest supplier exhibition for our sector giving you the opportunity to network with existing suppliers, as well as potential new ones.
