UK e-Science AHM 2009
Past, Present and Future
Monday 7th – Wednesday 9th December 2009, Oxford, UK
The All Hands Meeting has become the annual event where computational scientists and technologists can come together to share, discuss and advance the exciting research that has grown out of the e-Science Programme.
This year’s meeting sees several changes – in particular the date. Traditionally a September event, we have moved the AHM to December (Monday 7th – Wednesday 9th 2009) to coexist with the IEEE e-Science meeting, giving us the opportunity to bring the UK community together with the international leaders in e-Science. Both are being held at the Kassam Stadium.
A further exciting element of AHM 2009 is that it will be the central venue for the RCUK Review on e-Science. This provides the opportunity for us to showcase the activities of the e-Science programme and the community it has created– so please attend and help us do just that!
It is important that the AHM reflects the interests and research of the whole community and we welcome any contribution across this broad cross-section of activities. In order to provide some structure to the meeting we would like to introduce a number of themes and ask that you submit your papers to one of them:
- Theme 1: Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities
- Theme 2: Medical and Biological Sciences
- Theme 3: Physical and Engineering Sciences
- Theme 4: Environmental and Earth Sciences
- Theme 5: Sharing and Collaboration
- Theme 6: Distributed and High Performance Computing Technologies
- Theme 7: Data and Information Management
- Theme 8: User Engagement
- Theme 9: Foundations of e-Science
This year, we would especially like to encourage industry collaborators to fully participate in the conference, including contributing to papers.
We will also be introducing the Tony Hey Prize for the best student paper, named in honour of the outstanding contribution Tony has made to UK e-Science. This competition is open to any UK student and the winner will receive a prize of £250. Our challenge this year is to showcase the past and provide a spring board into the future and we are sure that with your contributions we can achieve this.
As well as the vibrant research agenda the meeting will offer the opportunity to meet socially with colleagues in the Oxford’s beautiful University venues.
We look forward to seeing you in Oxford in December!
Anne and Paul
