Microsoft eScience Conference Oct07

The 2007 Microsoft eScience Workshop at RENCI looks really interesting for us and anyone else doing work in cheminformatics or science automation.

October 21-23, 2007
The Friday Center for Continuing Education
UNC-Chapel Hill
100 Friday Center Drive
Chapel Hill NC 27599-1020

It is no longer possible to do science without doing computing.

The use of computers creates many challenges as it expands the realm of the possible in scientific research and many of these challenges are common to researchers in different areas. The insights gained in one area may catalyze change and accelerate discovery in many others. This workshop is explicitly cross-disciplinary, with the goal of bringing together scientists from different areas to share their research and experiences of how computing is shaping their work, providing new insights and changing what can be done in science. The focus is on the research, and the technologies that make that research possible.

We would like to invite contributions from any area of eScience; examples include:

Modeling of natural systems
Knowledge discovery and merging datasets
Science data analysis, mining, and visualization
Healthcare and biomedical informatics
High performance computing in science
Innovations in publishing scientific literature, results, and data
The impact of eScience on teaching and learning
Applying novel information technologies to disaster management
Robotics in science
Scientific challenges with no obvious computing solutions


Thanks to BBGM!

JC, SOrry I won't be able to be at this meeting but I will be in France at that time at the ACD/Labs User Meeting. It would have been good to potentially expose some of the work being done with structure databasing etc.
