NZ eResearch Symposium 2012

Wednesday 4th - Friday 6th July
Victoria University of Wellington

The 3rd New Zealand eResearch Symposium will be held at Victoria University of Wellington, on Wednesday 4th - Friday 6th July, 2012. It is New Zealand's event to celebrate and strengthen the use of technology within research of all disciplines.


We're pleased to confirm the following keynote speakers at NZ eResearch Symposium 2012:

Supercomputing 2011 - Part Four Education, Training and Outreach

One of the main reasons for my trip to SC11 was to look at the education program and talk with other national collaborations about how they approach education and training.

 I took part in the Education Program, and also attended Workforce Development Sessions and BOF sessions. I was also able to have discussions with various people about how they are approaching education, training and outreach.

Supercomputing 2011 - Part Three - Nvidia Keynote

The keynote of the conference was given by Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of Nvidia.  Jen-Hsun described how Nvidia was born through the desires of him and others wanting to play 3D games.  Nvidia has had explosive growth in the consumer graphics market since it launched, more recently it has been making inroads into the HPC area with General Purpose GPU computing.  This expansion into HPC stems from their decision to support IEEE floating point numbers when introducing pr

Supercomputing 2011 - Part Two - Inspiration & the Exhibit Hall

SC11 is nothing if not busy!  Far more sessions that you can ever attend, and all of them seem quite interesting (at least from the titles!)

I want to report back on the Education Program so far, and also the Gala opening of the Exhibition Hall.

Education Program first, today has been the highlight of the program for me so far, three sessions in particular stand out for me and I'll share a little about each with you.

Supercomputing 2011 - Part One

This is the first of a number of blog posts that I'll be making over the next week from Supercomputing 2011.  This is my first time at Supercomputing (the 24th in the series) which this year is being held in Seattle.

I'm here to take part in the Education Program, more about that later, first some stats about the conference.

Framework for eResearch Adoption takes next steps

It's with a mind to supporting the careful work being done by our Ministry of Science & Innovation's eResearch programme, and their pointman Julian Carver, that I highlight the excellent next steps Julian is taking in the Framework for eResearch Adoption project.

Framework for eResearch Adoption - what have we learned, what do we do next?


KAREN Seminar: What next for the eResearch Framework?

Join Julian Carver and Julie Watson on Tuesday 3 May to discuss initial findings from their February/March workshops on the Framework for eResearch Adoption.

Framework for eResearch Adoption - what have we learned, what do we do next?

Over February and March this year, Julian Carver held workshops with research institutions across the country to gather input into the Framework for eResearch adoption - a plan to help improve research through increased uptake and use of eResearch tools and methods.

Data-intensive science - trends in data reuse and management

The reuse and management of research data is becoming increasingly important. Data-intensive science represents a transition from traditional hypothesis and experimentation, to identifying patterns, and undertaking modelling and simulation using increasingly massive volumes of data collected by thousands of researchers the world over. This means more breakthroughs across research discipline boundaries, and more bang for the research buck.
