• Speaker: Brian Corrie, The IRMACS Centre, Simon Fraser University
  • Title: Collaboration in the Computational Sciences: Why, Where, What, and How
  • Location: Room V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 10th Feb 2011
  • Abstract:

    Research, as an activity, is fundamentally collaborative in nature. Driven by the massive amounts of data that are produced by computational simulations and high resolution scientific sensors, data-driven collaboration is of particular importance in the computational sciences. In this talk, I will discuss our experiences in designing, deploying, and operating an Canada wide advanced collaboration infrastructure in the support of the computational sciences. In particular, I will focus on the importance of data in such collaborations and discuss how current collaboration tools are sorely lacking in their support of data-centric collaboration.
