The impact of the e-Research paradigm on industrial and applied mathematics

Australian and New Zealand Industrial Applied Mathematics Seminar

by Prof C Paul Bonnington


Institution: Monash University
Date: Fri 12th December 2008
Time: 3:30 PM
Location: Old Geology Theatre 2, The University of Melbourne

Abstract: e-Research is the use of computing, information and communication technologies to
facilitate and enhance research and to do research collaboration better. e-Research
enables researchers to draw on perspectives and resources from a range of
participants, in order to develop new insights and new solutions to complex
problems. It involves the use of technology to draw people together, where
technology is the facilitator to researcher collaboration. The primary themes and
drivers of e-Research are: 'Data management and processing', 'Advanced
Collaboration Technologies', and 'High Performance Computing'. In this talk we
highlight the opportunities that e-Research offers industrial and applied
mathematics, and discuss the infrastructure that is being deployed across Victoria
(VAPC, VeRSI) and Australia (NCRIS Platforms for Collaboration) to facilitate the
adoption of e-Research technologies.
