Welcome to the January 2018 Newsletter.

First the bad news - nominations for the 2018 Network Computing Awards finalists have now closed. The good news however is that this year’s finalists will be announced shortly, at which time voting will open to determine the eventual winners. 2018 marks the 12th year of the NC Awards, and once again we will be asking you, the readers of Network Computing, to cast your votes online in the coming weeks.

That said, vendors still have until February 5th to submit their work for the Project of the Year Award. This category is judged by Network Computing’s editor Ray Smyth, and case studies should be sent to david.bonner@btc.co.uk. If you are considering submitting a project then please note that there is no predetermined length required for the case studies, as our judge can always contact you if more information is required.

The awards ceremony itself will be held on March 22nd at the Radisson Blu Edwardian in London’s Bloomsbury. You’ll find more information on the 2018 awards as well as details of sponsorship opportunities on our website.
