Fifth All Hands Meeting, 18th - 21st September 2006 Nottingham

Welcome to AHM2006

This year has seen an important transition for the UK e-Science programme. Many of the first set of pilot projects have completed and we now have clear outputs from the programme. E-Science in the UK had its fifth birthday and moved in to a sustained mode of management with the programme directorate being replaced by an EPSRC programme manager and Malcolm Atkinson as e-Science envoy.

The AHRC began their own e-Science programme and the e-Social science activities have matured, while all of the other Research Councils and JISC continue to develop e-Science and e-Infrastructure.

The theme for this year - Achievements, Challenges and New Opportunities - reflects this transition and we hope it will reflect the broad range of presentations and discussion we anticipate at the meeting. From the results of the completed activities, to the challenges for new areas, from the blue-skies research issues to the industry take up of prototype technologies.

The programme will include international leaders, workshops, panel sessions, posters and BoFs together with interactive demonstrations at the e-Science centres’ and other booths.

We hope you will join us in Nottingham at the East Midlands Conference Centre from 19 - 21st September, and will encounter many stimuli that link with your e-Science enthusiasms and advance your research.

Malcolm Atkinson and Anne Trefethen
