Digital technologies & science
Science in a digital world presents new opportunities and challenges. One of these challenges is keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in computer science. Furthermore, some scientific disciplines are well advanced in exploiting digital technologies, while others are just scratching the surface.
The aim of this conference is cross-fertilization across scientific disciplines, to advance science by fully exploiting the use of digital technologies. Disciplines include, but are not limited to: life sciences, health research, forensic science, humanities, social sciences, physics, astronomy, climate, environmental science, and earth science. Digital technologies include, but are not limited to: machine learning, natural language processing, real time data analysis, inter-operability and linked data, multi-scale and multi model simulations, high performance computing, workflow technologies, visualization, and image processing.
The conference brings together leading international researchers and research software engineers from all disciplines to present and discuss how digital technology impacts scientific practice.
The three-day conference program consists of two single track days open for all eScience contributions. New this year is a multitrack day with focused sessions on Exascale Computing for High Energy Physics, Weather and Climate science in the digital era, Data Handling and Analytics for Health, Advances in eScience for the Humanities and Social Sciences, and Computer Science: Tools & Infrastructure.
