Just a reminder that we have announced the repository stream programme at this year’s Gregynog Colloquium. Please book now to attend as delegate bookings are closing at the end of this week (Friday 21st)!
The full Colloquium programme is available on the Gregynog site at http://www.gregynog.ac.uk/HEWIT/index.asp?Page=2
As in previous years the WRN will be sponsoring places at the Colloquium for 2 participants per partner institution to attend the repository stream. Please book as usual via the Gregynog website but inform the project team that you would like a subsidised place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.
