CyberScience and CyberInfrastructure: A New Approach to Discovery in Science and Engineering
Speaker: Barry I. Schneider, ACM Division – NIST
Cyberscience (CS) and cyberinfrastructure (CI) are a sine qua non for progress in much of the mathematical and physical sciences and increasingly in the biological and social sciences as well. Progress is typically driven by the need to answer very specific scientific problems that occur at both very small and very large length and time scales as well as problems that need to analyze and extract information from large and often complex data sets. The talk will set the stage by pointing out the advances in technology that have enabled this progress, turn to some important examples where CS and CI have led to important scientific discoveries and close with what we might expect in the future.
