Big Data and Cloud Computing:
The second OSDC workshop (http://www.opensciencedatacloud.org funded in part by the NSF PIRE programme) in Edinburgh will gather young researchers and experts to address today's challenges and to develop understanding in how best to exploit our growing wealth of data. How can we formulate questions and then use evidence from data to answer them without inadvertently introducing bias? How can we integrate data across boundaries from heterogeneous sources? How can we build machinery: hardware, software and internet protocols to enable this on a global scale? The participants, from North and South America, from Japan and from Europe will engage in talks, discussions, hands-on tutorials and debate. The outcome should be: new ideas, new understanding and lasting international alliances pursuing collaborative research.
