#386 - Emerging Cyber Infrastructure Trends and Capabilities (10E04)
The session concentrates on chemical engineering and the emerging ‘scientific enterprise’ where science, computation and information technology are integrated. It is about the build out of IT infrastructure,i.e. the cyber infrastructure, and the innovative application of that infrastructure as a necessary means of doing research and development in frontier technologies. The scientific environment is recognized as large, complex, heterogeneous and distributed. Aggregation, compilation, exchange, and study of data are significant. Cyber infrastructure provides the vehicle for external and internal exchange and contribution and plays a vital role in the business of conducting research. It also facilitates the evaluation and solution of complex problems previously considered to be intractable. Papers about local, regional, national and international activities or case studies in companies, universities, institutes, foundations, and government are all welcome. A series of in-depth presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion to further explore this topic with everyone in attendance.
