Tech Talk 2021

About the Tech Talks

What are the Tech Talks for?

To bring eResearch Technical Specialists together in a forum for sharing technical experience and expertise.

Who is the target audience?

Technical Specialists working in ARDC supported projects; related activities, institutions and facilities; or anyone with interest or expertise in the technologies which underpin these activities.

How often are the Tech Talks?
A Tech Talk will take place (online currently) about every two months.

How do I join?
See the Signup form below.

How do I share topic suggestions for a talk?
previous suggestions. (2016-19)

A new topic suggestions/voting page is now available - note your ideas here.


I attended the Tech Talks in 2019, what's new with these Tech Talks?

A Programme Committee will select topics for the talks based on the target community's input and priorities. The Programme Committee is drawn from the community, ensuring the community owns the talks, whilst the ARDC just facilitates them.

This new series focuses on narrower technical specialist topics, more in line with the technical community's interests - eg (eResearch Infrastructure) tools, technologies, architectures and solutions, and less on general data/eResearch topics such as Data Visualisation, or overall eResearch project outcomes and deliverables.

All talks are currently online, but ultimately ARDC and Partner organisations will take turns hosting in-person Tech Talks.
