This year’s TERENA Networking Conference concluded on Thursday 22 May with an invitation for attendees to visit TNC2015 in Porto, Portugal on 15-18 June 2015. João Nuno Ferreira from FCT-FCCN, the Portuguese research and education network, presented a short film highlighting the city’s attractions, and participants of TNC2014 received a small bottle of tawny port as a reminder of the invitation to next year's event.

The keynote presenter, Martyn Dade-Robertson of Newcastle University (UK), gave a presentation about data visualisation and information architecture, which included an audio-visual presentation created with Domenico Vicinanza of DANTE. This presentation is downloadble from the TNC2014 website.
