Making the Web Work for Science:  The Impact of e-Science and the
Cyberinfrastructure
A One-Day Workshop Co-sponsored by CENDI. NFAIS and FLICC 
Hosted by FLICC at the Library of Congress

 

e-Science is used to describe computationally intensive science that is
carried out in highly distributed network environments, or science that
uses immense data sets that require grid computing; the term sometimes
includes technologies that enable distributed collaboration."
[Wikipedia]

	

FLICC of the Library of Congress is pleased to host this meeting in the
Library of Congress Mumford Room, 101 Independence Avenue, SE,
Washington, DC, 20540.  This timely and impactful workshop will take
place on Monday, December 8, 2008,  9:00 am - 4:30 pm.

E-Science and the Web will begin with an overview of the current
landscape and how the Web is being utilized for the advancement of
science and scholarly communication.  Following this thoughtful,
high-level perspective, real-life examples will be given of how major
communities such as librarians, publishers, and federal STI program
leaders are using the Web to advance scientific knowledge and scholarly
communication.

The Web has the potential to revolutionize the conduct of scientific
research. Interactive communication, global collaboration, real-time
data sharing and analysis of test results, and the shear speed with
which new ideas can be widely distributed, verified, and built upon all
hold much promise - not only for drug discovery, but also for the
development of the sustainable energy and food alternatives essential to
our world.

But is the Information Community acting quickly enough in leveraging the
Web's potential to accelerate scientific discovery?  What is the current
status?  How are libraries and content providers utilizing the Web to
provide state-of-the-art information products and services, and do these
services really meet researchers' needs?  What are the challenges to
fulfilling the Web's full potential and how are they being met? And what
does the future hold for scientific discovery if the full potential of
the Web is truly realized?  Join us on December 8th and learn the
answers to these questions and more!

Program

Dr. Christine Borgman, author of Scholarship in the Digital Age:
Information, Infrastructure, and the Internet, will provide a
provocative keynote on the role that the Web currently plays in
scientific research.  Content providers Howard Ratner (Nature
Publishing) and Dr. Walter Warnick (Department of Energy), along with
Dr. G. Sayeed Choudhury (Johns Hopkins University), will discuss their
organization's use of the Web in providing information products and
services for researchers. Practicing scientists, Dr. Alberto Conti and
Dr. Anthony Williams will provide their perspective on what still needs
to be done to meet scientists' needs. Dr. Michael Nelson (IBM), Fred
Haber (Copyright Clearance Center) and Dr. Michael Nielson (Perimeter
Institute, Canada), will discuss the technological, legal, and cultural
challenges to fulfilling the Web's potential for science. And the
closing keynote, given by Dr. Chris Greer, recently of the National
Science Foundation's Cyber-Infrastructure Office and, now, Networking
and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Director of
the National Coordination Office, will discuss how the
cyber-infrastructure will ultimately shape the advancement of science
and scholarly communication
