The New Zealand eResearch Symposium 2012 is open for registrations.

The symposium is the centrepiece of New Zealand's eresearch community. You are strongly encouraged to participate in this growing community of research practice. The three day event includes talks and discussion on all disciplines within eresearch and is highly buzzword compliant. We will be discussing eresearch, escience,  data-intenstive science while enjoying each other's company.

Whether you have only just heard of eresearch, or whether you have been advocating for it for years, please do attend. The symposium is in its third year and brings together participats from many fields. We expect to see friends and colleagues from the humanities, the public sector, private industry and several of the sciences.

Workshop details

Three workshops have been selected to be held on the 4th of July. They are:

Building a Cyber Infrastructure for Environmental Acoustics Research

This workshop is focused on the technology to support large sensor networks. The workshop will be of interest to people involved with remote sensing and also those people who deal with large volumes of data. The workshop's programme includes space for discussion of metadata and data management practices.

New Zealand HPC Applications Workshop

High performance computing is now accessible to New Zealand researchers. This workshop will cover dealing with applications that need to work in an HPC environment. This includes everything to deal with developing, tuning and using applications designed to work in a highly parallel and/or highly concurrent fashion.

Open Research in the New Zealand Context

Open research, open access and open science are increasingly part of researchers' discourse. This workshop will look into how open research fits into the New Zealand research culture and practice.


Presentation selections are still to come. The programme will be announced soon. Be sure to visit leading up to the conference to get the details.
