AeRO Forum presentations available

Presentations from the AeRO Forum held on 14 March in Canberra are now available on the AeRO website -

Of particular interest will be the presentations by Robyn Owens Chair of the Reference Group recommending on the design of the new National Research Data Cloud (NRDC) and Rob Cook who is providing support to this work.  The intention of the redesign in to combine Australian National Data Service (ANDS), Research Data Services (RDS) and National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR) into one entity and enable convergence toward a coherent eResearch system which links the NRDC, HPC facilities, AARNet and the AAF.  A transition plan to the NRDC was due to be submitted to the Department of Education and Training the end of March. Rob Cook’s slides are helpful in getting an idea of what the NRDC might look like.  Readers will find the Department’s communique on 15 March helpful in understanding the current situation -
