As universities enter an unparalleled period of change with the rise of MOOCs, more services moving into the Cloud, and with new consumer devices appearing everywhere, what will the ICT infrastructure of the future look like?

This first two-day UCISA Infrastructure Group (IG) Conference challenges us to think what the infrastructure of 2020 might look like in education and then showcases those pioneers to see how infrastructure is evolving today to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

This Conference, aimed at IT Directors, infrastructure managers and technologists brings together the movers and shakers in the sector along with key infrastructure suppliers, to deliver a series of keynote presentations, lively debate, university showcases and a supplier exhibition.

The venue is the magnificent Crewe Hall, with its new dedicated Events Centre and Health Fitness and Spa, located just 10 minutes from the M6 junction 16, just 3 miles from Crewe Station and within easy reach of the thriving cities of Manchester and Liverpool.

The beautiful city of Chester is just a 40 minute drive away should you want to make it a weekend away.

Included in the residential delegate rate is one night’s accommodation, the conference dinner, breakfast on Friday and lunch and refreshments both days.
