7th IEEE International Conference on e-Science

By WebmasterNews
Researchers in all disciplines are increasingly adopting digital tools, techniques and practices, often in communities and projects that span disciplines, laboratories, organizations, and national boundaries. The e-Science 2011 conference is designed to bring together leading international and interdisciplinary research communities, developers, and users of e-Science applications and enabling IT technologies. The conference serves as a forum to present the results of the latest research and product/tool developments and to highlight related activities from around the world. Also, we are now entering the second decade of e-Science and the 2011 conference gives an opportunity to take stake on what has been achieved so far and look forward to the challenges and opportunities the next decade will bring.A special emphasis of the 2011 conference is on advances in the application of technology in a particular discipline. Accordingly, significant advances in science and technology will be considered as important as the development of new technologies themselves. Further, we welcome contributions in educational activities under any of these disciplines.

As a result, the conference will be structured around a number of e-Science themes:

1. Arts, Humanities and e-Social Science
2. Bioinformatics and Health
3. Physical Sciences and Engineering
4. Climate & Earth Sciences
5. Data Management and digital repositories
6. Research Tools, Workflow and systems, novel infrastructure
7. Education and e-Science practice

The proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA and will be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.
