15 Oct 2009:Microsoft eScience Workshop - 15-17 October 2009

Facilitating Scientific Discovery through Data-Intensive Computing

Microsoft eScience Workshop, October 15-17 2009, The Gates Center for Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Visit theconference website for more details.

The goal of this 6th annual cross-disciplinary workshop is to bring together scientists from diverse research disciplines for the opportunity to share their research and experiences of how computing is transforming their work. The focus will be on discussion of the computing technologies which enable scalable solutions that address scientific grand challenges. Discussions will explore the eScience technologies required to support the Fourth Paradigm of data-intensive science, now becoming pervasive for many scientific disciplines.

The event will also be the occasion of the presentation of the second Jim Gray eScience award (won by OMII-UK's Professor Carole Goble in 2008). This is presented to a researcher who has made an especially significant contribution the field of data-intensive computing.

Primary support for the workshop is provided by the External Research group at Microsoft Research, headed by Corporate Vice President Tony Hey.

Call for Papers

We invite contributions from all areas of eScience and e-Research including:

  • Computational support for scientific research in life sciences, biomedical computing, environment, energy, and other scientific grand challenges
  • Knowledge discovery and merging datasets
  • Large-scale scientific data analysis, mining, and visualization
  • High-performance computing applied to solving problems in a variety of scientific disciplines
  • Dissemination of scientific literature/results and the discovery, curation, and sharing of data
  • Scientific sensors, data-gathering tools and technologies
  • Collaboration/workflow tools and technologies
  • Data-intensive science
  • Emerging multidisciplinary fields such as Digital Heritage and eEconomy
  • Research implications of computational thinking
  • How strategies for semantics and ontology formulation enable scientific discovery
