This is an event I used to really enjoy. Many smart people from various fields of science getting together. Highly recommended. Here’s the announcement and call for papers for the 2009 one.
The 2009 eScience Workshop will be held at the Gates Center for Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, October 15-17, 2009. The call for papers closes on July 31, 2009.
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
The eScience Workshop, to be held October 15-17, 2009, will provide a unique opportunity to share experiences, learn new techniques, and influence the domain of scientific computing. Scientists and researchers will explore the evolution, challenges and potential of computing in scientific research, including how the latest tools, Web services and database technologies are being applied to scientific computing.
Facilitating Scientific Discovery through Data-Intensive Computing
Hosting and Location
Co-hosted by Microsoft Research and Carnegie Mellon University, this workshop will take place in the Gates Center for Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.
