  3. Report from Computing Executive Group

    It was suggested that the innovation day teams should be formed beforehand and that ideas for possible new services should be solicited ahead of the the innovation days. The teams would not necessarily innovate at the same time reducing the impact of these days on normal services.

    It was observed that the current meeting structure does not really offer any opportunities for computing staff to get together and have informal technical discussions. Lunch time was suggested as a possible time slot but this was not received with universal acclaim. The Wednesday slot notionally allocated to technical slots was received more favourably. Alastair will consider this further.

  4. Reports from units.

  5. Topics for discussion

    None

  6. Items for the Computing Systems blog
  7. AOCB

    Alastair will chase up the status and consequences of the KB shutdown planned for later in August

  8. Next meeting

    The next meeting will be on Wednesday 22nd August, 10am in 4.31. The convener will be Craig.
