ResNet 2008 News and Updates

UNB welcomes the ResNet community to Canada!

The University of New Brunswick is excited to host ResNet 2008, the 15th annual ResNet Symposium, in Fredericton New Brunswick from June 21st - 25th 2008.


June 25th 2008 - ResNet 2008 is in the Books!

ResNet 2008 is officially over and on behalf of the entire host committee we would like to thank everyone who attended and participated. It takes every single person to make this organization the success it is. We heard some exciting news about the future of our organization and we hope you enjoyed your stay in Fredericton, learned a few new ideas to help you professionally and made new friends personally.

Once we have the closing video 'working' we will post it here. Early next week we will also have a strategy for posting the session videos and we will let you all know.

In the meantime, anyone who took photos, please post them to the gallery so everyone can remember how much fun was had. 

We sincerely thank you for joining us in Canada - I know it was a long trip for many of you, but we had so much fun hosting each and every one of you and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

We look forward to seeing you in St. Clouds!

On behalf of the ResNet 2008 Host Committee,
Chris Miller & Michelle McNeil
