Welcome to the latest update of the VSSN website. It’s very much evolution rather than revolution. VSSN was slightly spread out across the web, with a main website and a separate membership directory, and separate content for new members.
We’ve brought all of these together in one place in the updated site. As a network, VSSN is its members, so we’ve put members at the heart of the site. Each member has their own profile, and is listed in the members directory. When you’re logged in you’ll get discounts on events and you can also search the directory for members with similar interests.
We’re also bringing the research that VSSN members do to the fore. All the papers from our day conferences and annual conference will be available on the site, and we’ll also be asking VSSN members to write blogs about the work they’re doing. The first blog post is from Rob Macmillan.
The new site is very much just a beginning. There’s lots of functionality that we haven’t yet activated – groups, discussions, the ability to list your own research papers. We’ll be working with members over the next few months to see what would be most useful for them.
We also need your help. The website has been created almost entirely voluntarily, and there are still some rough edges. So if you see something that’s broken or could be improved, do let us know, either by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, leaving a comment below, or filling in a bug report.
