8th IEEE International Conference on eScience 2012

Chicago, USA, 8-12 October 2012

Thank you!

Thanks to all eScience attendees and contributors, and we look forward to seeing you again in Beijing for eScience 2013

eScience 2012

The 8th IEEE International Conference on eScience (eScience 2012) will be held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, 8-12 October 2012, with workshops (including the Microsoft eScience Workshop) on 8-9 October and the main conference events on 10-12 October.

Scientific research is increasingly carried out by communities of researchers that span disciplines, laboratories, organizations and national boundaries. These activities involve geographically distributed and heterogeneous resources such as computational systems, scientific instruments, databases, sensors, software components, networks, and people. Such large-scale and enhanced scientific endeavors are carried out via collaborations on a global scale in which information and computing technology plays a vital role and are thus popularly termed as e-Science.
