About the Conference

After the excitement of last year, celebrating 50 years of the IBM mainframe, we thought it would be good to focus our attention back to what is still one of the biggest talking points in today's IT departments, the Cloud. So this year our strapline is "z Systems: The Cloud has a silver lining".

For 2015 we return once again to the Whittlebury Hall Hotel for two days of intensive information across a broad range of topics.

As in the last few years we will also be featuring some hands-on workshops, in both multi-session and short "drop in" formats. The agenda is still in preparation however be assured that we have once again secured the presence of Mark Anzani for his ever more popular "Birds of a Feather" breakfast session on the Wednesday morning.

Join us on November 3rd & 4th

We look forward to meeting you at the 2015 GSE Working Groups' Conference which will take place at the Whittlebury Hall Hotel on November 3rd and 4th 2015. These pages will be updated as the conference detail is planned, so please return from time to time to see the latest news.
