CESI Meet – Dingle

The CESI Executive Committee is delighted to announce its next CESI Meet on 17th September 2010.  As usual the Meet is a  semi-formal evening of sharing information, ideas and projects, this CESI Meet’s programme will provide attendees with exposure to different ICT & learning topics in the span of two hours in the Skellig Hotel, Dingle.
