eScience 2007 Conference

[I highly recommend the series of eScience conferences. If you have a chance look at the presentations and topics from previous eScience conferences. While many cyber-infrastructure and grid conference focus on the enabling technologies for eScience such as grids, web services, workflow and the like, this conference focus on their use to solve real scientific problems. The range of applications and uses for eScience is quite amazing -- BSA]

3rd IEEE International Conference on e-Science and Grid Computing
e-Science 2007
Dec. 10-13, 2007, Bangalore, India

Sponsored/Organised By:
IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Scalable Computing
The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), India
Center For Computation & Technology (CCT), LSU, USA
The University of Melbourne, Australia
Indiana University, USA

The next generation of scientific research and experiments will be carried out by communities of researchers from organizations that span national boundaries. These activities will involve geographically distributed and heterogeneous resources such as computational systems, scientific instruments, databases, sensors, software components, networks, and people. Such large-scale and enhanced scientific endeavors, popularly termed as e-Science, are carried out via collaborations on a global scale.

Grid computing has emerged as one of the key computing paradigms that enable the creation and management of an Internet-based utility computing infrastructure, called cyberinfrastructure, for the realization of e-Science and e-Business at the global level. To harness the potential of e-Science and Grid computing paradigms, several national and international projects around the world have been initiated to carry out research and innovation activities that will transform the goal of e-Science and Grid computing into a reality.

The e-Science 2007 conference, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society’s Technical Committee for Scalable Computing (TCSC), is designed to bring together leading international and interdisciplinary research communities, developers, and users of e-Science applications and enabling IT technologies. The conference serves as a forum to present the results of the latest research and product/tool developments, and highlight related activities from around the world.


Topics of interest concerning e-Science and Grid computing include, but not limited to, the following:

* Enabling Technologies: Internet and Web Services
* Collaborative Science Models and Techniques
* Service-Oriented Grid Architectures
* Problem Solving Environments
* Application Development Environments
* Programming Paradigms and Models
* Resource Management and Scheduling
* Grid Economy and Business Models
* Autonomic, Real-Time and Self-Organising Grids
* Virtual Instruments and Data Access Management
* Sensor Networks and Environmental Observatories in e-Science
* Security Challenges
* e-Science & Grid applications in Physics, Biology, Astronomy,
Chemistry, Finance, Engineering, and the Humanities
* Web 2.0 Technology and Services for e-Science

e-Science 2007 will also feature workshops, tutorials, exhibits, and an industrial track. To organize or participate in these please visit the conference website.
