2007 Microsoft eScience Workshop at RENCI

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.

Co-chairs:

Dan Reed, Director, Renaissance Computing Institute

Tony Hey, Corporate Vice President for Technical Computing, Microsoft Corporation

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

All registered attendees are invited to submit an abstract for consideration as a talk at the Workshop. Abstracts will be evaluated by the program committee and those not selected for presentation will be offered poster presentation as an alternative.

Abstracts are accepted online at
