The annual IEEE eScience conference will be held in Munich, Germany from 31st August to 4th September 2015. The objective of the eScience Conference is to promote and encourage all aspects of eScience and its associated technologies, applications, and tools.
We consider the term eScience in its broadest meaning – effectively any technical, organisational or cultural aspect of the digital revolution of research is a relevant topic. In short, eScience promotes innovation in collaborative, computationally- or data-intensive research across all disciplines, throughout the research lifecycle.
This digital revolution has already fundamentally transformed several fields, and created specialised eScience disciplines dealing with computing-related challenges and opportunities, as demonstrated by the developments in:
- Arts, humanities (including Digital Humanities) and e-Social science
- Bioinformatics and e-Health
- Physical Sciences and Engineering
- Climate, Environmental & Earth Sciences
At the same time, eScience itself has become a topic of specialised research, engineering and outreach activities, such as:
- Data science, data management and digital repositories
- Cyberinfrastructure to support e-Science, including novel hardware, software and services
- e-Science in the cloud
- Education and e-Science practice
We hope that the eScience conferences will not only enable more efficient research activities within disciplines, but also support wide range of transdisciplinary collaboration and sharing of best practices between established researchers, citizen scientists and other interested parties, and with the society as a whole!
The call for papers and workshops already online, and we will be updating this site frequently in the coming weeks to provide information about the programme, practical arrangements and different ways to participate. Please follow us also on Twitter and on Facebook!
