  講座題目:Some reflections from participation in the UK e-Science programme 

  主講人: Martin Dove

  地點:計算中心二樓會議室 

  報告簡介: 

  In the first decade of our current millenium the UK embarked on an ambitious programme it called e-Science. It was broadly inspired by developments in grid computing and distributed data management coming from some government laboratories and universities in the USA. The ideas envisaged connecting computer resources around the world to perform super-large scale simulations, and taking some new approaches to data management. Such systems envisaged that logins would be replaced by certificate-based credentials to give the user access to massive resources wherever they are, and never having to worry where they were computing and where their data are stored. These things would just be "out there somewhere". 

  A decade or so later we find the world of computing to be radically different. But whilst some experiments may now seem to have been superseded by events, there were many lessons that I would claim to have been profound and even more relevant today, although I would argue we have barely started to implement them. For example, I sense there remains little concern for data management by organisations that provide high-performance computing facilities. 

  I will give my talk from the perspective of two large e-Science projects I was leading, eMinerals and MaterialsGrid. The latter was actually a forerunner of the better known Materials Genome project, and I will reflect on why it didn't have the influence it could have had. Both projects were about using grid computing to run materials simulations, but the most important lessons that I will focus on concern issues of data management, automatic metadata collection, and the underpinning issue of data representation. I will also stress the importance with regard to participating in collaborative science.
