Powering Up Research: Data Fuelled Innovation
Data Intensive Science is a rapidly emerging, cross disciplinary research challenge already traversing the fields of Materials Science, Bio-medical research, Computational Engineering and Digital Humanities (to name a few).
With huge volumes and complex data at the heart of many research projects, advancing the methods used to analyze, manage, and interpret this data is key. The significance of the discipline has recently been recognised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in awarding £20 million to 6 new national supercomputing centres, including the Cambridge Centre for Data Driven Discovery. This event aims to bring together researchers from varying disciplines across SES and provide them with a forum to share ideas, discover cross-disciplinary patterns in data intensive research, and solve larger research problems.
This event on 13th November 2017 (1:00 - 17:30) is being hosted by King's College London and the Science and Engineering South Consortium (SES) and is open to researchers, support staff, academics and industry members from across King’s College London, the SES Consortium, and the UK (limited places).
The Science and Engineering South Consortium (SES) is formed by the Universities of Oxford, Southampton, Imperial College London, Queen Mary University of London, King’s College London, and University College London. The consortium works with other centres of research excellence in the UK and around the world.
Access to high-value research equipment and expertise are common challenges across academic disciplines. By pooling demand and resources in the science and engineering communities, access to a wider range of equipment and expertise can be obtained that could not be justified or supported by the universities if they acted alone, enabling researchers to achieve things that would otherwise be impossible.
