About the Event
The goal of this cross-disciplinary event is to bring together scientists from diverse research disciplines and give them the opportunity to share their research and their experiences of how computing is shaping their work—and thus to provide new insights into how data-driven computing is facilitating scientific discovery. The discussion will center on how we can take advantage of “big data” and create computing technologies that enable scalable solutions that address a broad range of scientific challenges.
The event includes the presentation of the second Jim Gray eScience award. The award is presented to a researcher who has made an especially significant contribution to the field of data-intensive computing.
Tony HeyPrimary support for the workshop comes from the External Research Group at Microsoft Research, headed by Corporate Vice President Tony Hey.
