Regular SCiO Meetings

scio's picture
  • Open Meetings (open to all), at most of which a series of presentations of general interest to SCiO's members and others is given. Some of these meetings are also used to discuss specific problems in a workshop situation. There is a fee of £10 for all attendees for these meetings.
     
  • Development Days (members only) at which a smaller group of SCiO's members gather in order to apply themselves to a series of specific problem brought by the attendees. A study topic (usually from Systems theory) may also be addressed. There is no charge made for these meetings.

Booking is required for all meetings. For open meetings, please email benjamin.taylor@scio.org.uk, and for development meetings, tony.korycki@scio.org.uk
