e-Science Data Integration & Knowledge Transformation Symposium 2008

A symposium for Scottish researchers to discuss all aspects of research computing – from simulations to Grids and from visualisations to analysis – in a number of scientific disciplines.

Registration is free. Lunch and snacks are provided.

Topics: chemistry, bioinformatics, grid applications, neuroscience, social sciences, speech technology and computer science.

This event is unique in Scotland. It will bring together Scottish researchers who make heavy use of computer simulations, models or analysis to do research, allowing them to swap ideas and see how other scientists use the resources to maximum benefit.

The day will be arranged into four sessions covering a wide range of computational research including cell biology, computational chemistry, brain imaging, grid technologies and bioinformatics.

Attendance: Open to ALL researchers across UK. No charge.

Talk Length: Sessions are 1.5 hours and have 3 talks each.

Poster sessions: during coffee and lunch.

Speakers include:

  • Prof. Jason Swedlow, School of Life Sciences, University of Dundee
  • Dr Tanja van Mourik, School of Chemistry, University of St. Andrews
  • Dr Graeme Stewart, ScotGrid,University of Glasgow
  • Dr Paul Lambert, Department of Applied Social Science, University of Stirling
