MACS Computer Science academics Professor Greg Michaelson and Dr Mike Just hosted the most recent SCONE (SCOttish Networking Event) last month. The SICSA sponsored event is an informal gathering of networking and systems researchers from around Scotland which is held regularly each year.

Attended by around 40 researchers from 10 institutions, the event featured a tour of the Heriot-Watt Computer Science department, talks from PhD students, faculty, postdocs and industrial researchers along with discussions of possible funding opportunities.

Attendance at the events is free with the goal being to foster interaction between researchers from the various institutions.

The SCONE meetings are related to the SICSA Next Generation Internet theme.
