Cancelled Events!

Unfortunately due to travel restrictions and the cancellation of SCAsia 2020, the SCAsia user group meeting has been cancelled.

The Spring 2020 USA event also has no venue and so currently has been postponed!

We’d really like the user group events to remain free, but we need organisations to offer meeting spaces and sponsors to support the user group events! If you’re able to support a future group event, please get in touch!

2020 events calendar posted!
