The ninth UK e-Science All Hands Meeting (AHM 2010), with the theme of e-Science: novel research, new science and enduring impact, was held at the City Hall, Cardiff, from 13-16 September 2010.
The meeting provided a forum in which information on e-Science projects from all disciplines can be communicated and where the capabilities being developed within projects can be demonstrated.
The conference included presentations by groups from throughout the UK who are active in e-Science projects, as well as poster sessions, workshop sessions, project demonstrations and birds-of-a-feather sessions.
A student prize of £250 was awarded to Stephen Wilson for his paper and talk, entitled, "The Impact of eScience on Real Science: the second harmonic generation experiment".
The programme featured invited plenary speakers, Professor Dan Atkins (University of Michigan, http://www.si.umich.edu/people/faculty-detail.htm?sid=2), Professor Alex Szalay (Johns Hopkins University, http://physics-astronomy.jhu.edu/people/faculty/szalay.html) and Professor Carole Goble (University of Manchester, http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~carole/).
The All Hands Meeting provided several options for presenting work:
- Presentation in a parallel session
- Presentation in a workshop
- Poster Presentation
- Birds-of-a-Feather session
Abstracts (and some slides) have been made available for download on the AHM 2010 Programme pages.
Select abstracts have been chosen for possible inclusion as full papers in a special issue of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A journal. The two volume AHM 2009 Phil Trans A special issue, titled "e-Science: past, present and future", is now available online and in print at: http://rsta.royalsocietypublishing.org/site/issues/esci.xhtml
