11th IEEE International Conference on eScience

Munich, Germany, August 31 – September 04, 2015

IEEE eScience 2015 is an opportunity for academia, industry and non-profits to present the latest research findings related to eScience and its applications. Posters are an important part of this knowledge exchange, and will be presented in a poster session on the second day (Tuesday 1st September, in the university main building) of the conference.

About eScience
The ways scientific research is conducted and its results are taken up are undergoing radical changes as a result of the digital revolution. Researchers in all disciplines are increasingly adopting digital tools, techniques and practices in communities and projects that span multiple disciplines, laboratories, organizations, and national boundaries. The eScience 2015 conference is designed to bring together leading international and interdisciplinary research communities, developers, and users of eScience applications and enabling IT technologies. The conference aims to serve as a forum to present recent research advances in eScience and highlight associated activities worldwide, providing an outlook of challenges and opportunities we will face in the future.

About eScience 2015 conference
