IRIS-Seminar: e-Experiences and Opportunities for International Collaboration
|Ort:||Rudower Chaussee 26, 12489 Berlin|
|Raum:||Erwin Schrödinger-Zentrum, Kleiner Hörsaal 0‘110|
|Referent:||Professor Richard O. Sinnott, University of Melbourne, Department of Computing and Information Systems|
Globally there have been a huge amount of resources invested in supporting research-oriented IT endeavours typified by e-Science, e-Research and e-Infrasructure/cyberinfrastructures. This talk will outline some of these efforts and highlight examples of successful and unsuccessful efforts that the presenter has been involved in covering multiple application domains (including the humanities, social sciences, geosciences, nano-sciences, health sciences and post-genomic biomedical sciences). The talk will identify some of the computing challenges in supporting current and future domain-specific collaborative research especially with regard to the ever-increasing data deluge and security.
