|Date:||15 December 11:30am - 16 December 3:30pm 2003|
|Venue:||e-Science Institute, 15, South College Street, Edinburgh, Scotland|
|Organiser:||Mike Allen (Centre for Scientific Computing, University of Warwick)|
[Return to Programme List]
The aim of the workshop would be to allow the CCPs to become better informed and integrated into the UK e-Science programme. The CCPs represent a considerable community of UK computational scientists, with an interest in developing and maintaining libraries of computing codes - see http://www.ccp.ac.uk for more details. They have shown a strong interest in participating in the e-Science programme, but so far have been largely unsuccessful in their applications to run Research Council e-Science pilot projects; and their work does not fit naturally into the e-Science core programme, being largely applications driven. In the coming few years, as e-Science technologies become mature enough to roll out to the broader community, we believe that the CCPs can play an important role.
Please take the time to complete and return the e-Science Grid Infrastructure Test-bed Facility user requirements survey. The questionnaire is available to download at http://www.nesc.ac.uk/ /news/articles_and_calls/051203.html

This event will be attended by the CCP Steering Panel, CCPs, Post Docs, Daresbury Laboratory support staff, and a couple of EPSRC representatives. Registration is by invitation only. If you have not received an invitation and feel you should have please contact the organiser. If you have received an invitation please register using the link below.
Please register before the 8th December 2003. NB: Accommodation costs will be covered for one evening - the hotel budget for this will be under £70.
The event will be hosted by the e-Science Institute in Edinburgh which is a centre for education and research for e-Science, and provides new state-of-the art facilities including an Access Grid system.
Travel: The e-Science Institute is less than 15 minutes walk from Waverley rail station, and from St Andrews square bus stations. It is approximately 20 minutes by taxi from Edinburgh airport (40 minutes by bus). Please see our web site for a map of the area.
