We will also be running a bring-your-own data session for those of you already working with XPS, during which we will have experts on hand to help you understand your data.

If you do not have data of your own, we will be providing all attendees with a workbook of data to practice with to cater for all levels of expertise. Please remember to bring your own laptop and a copy of CasaXPS.
