New Zealand eResearch Symposium
eResearch encompasses all of the information technology infrastructure and software that supports a research community. This includes the computing platforms, the software platforms that connect equipment, data, and other computing resources with people, along with collections management, platforms to run experiments, and advanced collaboration tools. eResearch communities thrive on deep engagement with researchers, supporting the formation and operation of effective digitally supported research communities. New Zealand's eResearch community is growing in confidence and experience across a broad range of research application & service areas, in the humanities and social sciences, physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering.
The symposium aims to bring together practitioners from a range of research communities, including those involved in using, developing, and supporting software applications and services which take advantage of distributed collaboration platforms for team science, including grid middleware, high performance computing, data infrastructure, advanced video-conferencing, advanced research networks. It is also an opportunity to meet some of the leaders of eResearch initiatives within NZ and internationally, and to hear about best-practice and to share understanding and experiences.
The NZ eResearch Symposium 2012 is supported by
|Ministry of Science & Innovation||and||New Zealand eScience Infrastructure|
