SPUSC and QUESTnet included in THETA15 Program

The organisers of THETA 2015 have announced that the South Pacific User Services Conference (SPUSC) and QUESTnet will be included within the THETA 2015 program. The addition of the two streams will ensure that participants wanting to attend all events, will not experience conflicting priorities by bringing together these fantastic streams into the one event.

The SPUSC stream aims to highlight challenges for user services within Higher Education and provide effective strategies and solutions to overcome them. The QUESTnet stream provides a valuable opportunity for ICT professionals working in higher education and research organisations to hear from a distinguished cohort of keynote speakers, and visit trade exhibits and attend sessions with a focus on the more technical aspects of support whilst gaining an appreciation of key strategic issues underpinning ICT’s role in supporting research and learning.
