The gap between the summer holidays and the start of the academic term in October has always made September a busy conference season for researchers. This year STFC e-Science has been on show at the main UK, European and international conferences for the discipline.

The UK e-Science All Hands Meeting (AHM '08) (link opens in a new window) was held in Edinburgh on the 8th - 11th September where STFC e-Science and the UK National Grid Service (link opens in a new window) presented their services in booths, and several papers were presented by STFC e-Science staff to the UK e-Science community. The Oxford e-Research Conference 2008 (link opens in a new window) on 11-13 September addressed a more social research agenda where several e-Science attendees interacted in a series of panels and discussions. The 24th Open Grid Forum (link opens in a new window) took place in Singapore on the 15th to 19th September, to further the global standardisation of Grid technologies. The EGEE 08 Conference in Istanbul on the 22-26 September attracted a mainly European audience who were presented with booths operated by STFC e-Science staff for the UK & Ireland Grid Federation, and the European Grid Initiative (link opens in a new window) as well as hearing several talks and panels by STFC e-Science staff.

In 2009 the UK e-Science All Hands Meeting (AHM) and Oxford e-Research Conference will be held together with the IEEE e-Science Conference (link opens in a new window) in Oxford in December, and it is expected that with such a close location to the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (link opens in a new window), STFC e-Science will have an even more significant presence than this year.
