On 14 November 1994 the Central Computing and Informatics Departments at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory were merged to form a new Computing and Information Systems Department (CISD).
Creating the new Department has brought together a wide range of IT and computational skills in R&D and service-related disciplines into a single, comprehensive organisation that will increase the breadth and scope of work with customers and partners as the role and status of the Laboratory begin to change during the next year.
The Mission Statement for CISD is "To provide high quality computational facilities, specialist services and high value IT solutions for customers inside and outside DRAL".
G&V will continue to be published according to the regular schedule, 6 times per year, targeting its normal readership. The Editorial team remains unchanged.
