Mini-Workshop on UK-Sino e-Science Collaborations

As part of the latest round of International e-Science “sister” projects, a number of international collaborations have been formed. Of particular note are the collaborations between the UK e-Science community and the increasingly important e-Science initiative taking place in China.

Collaborations between institutions offer many advantages, such as pooling of resources and equipment, and the exchange of ideas and perspectives on research. By forming collaborations between the UK and China, there is the opportunity to produce and adopt global solutions to problems that may be infeasible with only one party involved. By pooling resources and skills between the UK and China we have the potential to advance the field of e-Science faster then before.

The mini-workshop seeks to summarise the current collaborations between U.K. and Chinese e-Science communities and to debate how to both stimulate and enhance future collaborations.

The workshop aims to:

  • Collect case studies of existing UK-Sino collaborations and discuss best practice in terms of video conferencing software, middleware technologies, document sharing, etc.
  • Provide an opportunity for scientists interested in UK-Sino e-Science collaborations to gain insights into establishing and managing such collaborations.

The format of the workshop will consist of:

  • Three invited speakers from major UK-Sino collaborations including both Chinese and UK representatives.
  • A panel discussion featuring active collaborators on what the biggest advantages and biggest obstacles are to UK-Sino collaborations.

The target audience consists of scientists, project leaders and end users involved in or interested in UK-Sino collaborations and who wish to exchange ideas and best practice. These collaborations cover the whole range of scientists involved in e-Science.
