I am delighted to be acting as Chairman of this year's Conference
Programme. Both my appointment and the location chosen in 2008 herald a
new approach, which is also reflected in the title of this year's
meeting. We intend to promote much more seriously the domain application
aspects of e-Science in 2008. To shape the meeting into one which truly
achieves the aims implied by its title, we need to attain a genuine
synergy between computer scientists and computational scientists and
researchers in all domains, achievable by facilitating access to, and
exploitation of, all kinds of distinct resources across disparate
Our success will be determined by the extent to which we are able to
construct a lively and exciting programme for all anticipated
participants, by our ability to build on this meeting to facilitate new
ways of doing science, and to create bold new initiatives at national
and international levels in the years to come to sustain our
international leadership in e-Science and computational science. I am
sure that, together, we will be more than able to meet this challenge!
