The intended participants of the AHM are personnel contracted in NeIC operations or projects. If you are engaged in a NeIC project and not sure whether you should participate, please contact your team leader. The program will include a major component of social networking, attempting to mitigate the effects of the completely distributed nature of NeIC and facilitate excellent working relations.
Interested members of project steering groups or reference group and stakeholder fora who want to participate in the discussions, socialize with NeIC and see what work in NeIC is like on the inside are warmly welcome to join the AHM. However, co-locating official meetings in such groups to this event is strongly discouraged, in order not to distract staff away from the prioritized content. On the other hand, network connectivity has proven excellent at this location, so for any sessions that do not directly concern such delegates, time can still very likely be usefully spent doing other productive work.
The focus of the all hands meeting should be on spending social time together with your teammates and therefore we do in general not recommend to bring your family during the meeting. If you want to explore the location with your family you’re welcome to do so, but preferably before or after the AHM. NeIC, however, will not arrange any travel or accommodation for that.
