edikt2010 Symposium - Using computing in your research

This meeting is intended to to bring together Scottish researchers who make heavy use of computational techniques, such as simulation, modelling or analysis to do research. This will allow the exchange of ideas and see how other scientists use resources to maximum benefit. There is no similar activity in Scotland.

invited

Science is witnessing a data revolution. Data are now created by faster and cheaper physical technologies, software tools and digital collaborations. Examples of these include satellite networks, simulation models and social network data. To transform these data successfully into information then into knowledge and finally into wisdom, we need new forms of computational thinking. These may be enabled by building "instruments" that make data comprehensible for the "naked mind" in a similar fashion to the way in which telescopes reveal the universe to the naked eye.
