LIV.DAT Virtual Seminar Series – Spring 2021

Published on

In 2020, LIV.DAT started their Virtual Seminars on Data Intensive Science with guest speakers from the UK, Europe and the USA. With the new calendar year underway we are delighted to announce the next seminars in our LIV.DAT Virtual Seminar Series. These seminars cover R&D outside of our centre’s core research areas and give an insight into cutting edge research in this area.

Participation is free, but you need to register to attend the webinars in the series.
