November 6, 2012 Leave a comment

The IRIOS-2 workshop was held in Jesmond on 18th October and the project team was able to provide a live demonstration of the service.

The workshop afforded us the perfect opportunity to assess IRIOS-2 im a commercial light, and we were able to explore options of offering the service to other ROs in the near future.

Feedback from those in attendance was positive and discussions were informative and interesting.

Earlier in IRIOS-2 we submitted a testing plan, this was used to conduct testing on the IRIOS-2 service with results of the testing forthcoming very soon.

The attached document includes the final testing plan as well as the IRIOS-2 user guide, while this is not to be submitted as a deliverable this document does provide the ability for system users to see the user guide and try out the service.

IRIOS-2 Workshop

September 17, 2012 Leave a comment

The end of the IRIOS-2 project is quickly approaching and while demos have been conducted for the core project partners, the wider community has yet to see the results of what has been a tremendous development effort.

The IRIOS-2 project will be holding a workshop in October, this is currently shceduled to take place on 18th October as an all day event at “Pets Corner” in Newcastle, some people may remember this as the location of the 2011 ARMA event.

We would be very keen to see not only the IRIOS project partners but also an extended list of attendees at this event with invites being circulated very soon.

Finally, if the IRIOS-2 project isnt incentive enough to attend……

Come to see the new born Alpaca at the Pets Corner petting zoo!
