DAFNI Conference 2019



Welcome to the registration page for the first DAFNI Showcase!  This will be your opportunity to be the first to witness the launch of DAFNI version 1.0.  Following 2 years of intense development effort, we are delighted to unveil to the wider community the exciting advancements within the facility and how it will relate to and revolutionise infrastructure business and research nationwide.

There will be an opportunity not only to ask questions of the development team, but also to have an exclusive insight into our pilot projects from the researchers themselves. In addition to this, there is the chance to participate in an optional Hackathon on day 2 to truly become involved with the mapping of the facility.  Delegates can choose to attend either or both days, and both are free of charge.  To register for either event, click the register button at the top or bottom of the page.  We look forward to welcoming you there.
