Discover how digital technology impacts scientific practice
23 May 2016 Amsterdam - The Netherlands eScience Center will be organizing its 4th National eScience Symposium in the Amsterdam ArenA on October 13, 2016 between 9h30 and 18h00, under the theme "Science in a Digital World". "Science in a Digital World" is a day-long event where scientists and researchers from different fields meet to discover how digital technology impacts scientific practice. The symposium will feature five thematic sessions showcasing world-class data-driven and compute-intensive research in different fields: Sports & eHealth, Social, Astronomy, Smart Energy, and Data Science. The thematic sessions are organized in partnership with ASTRON, Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (CBS), COMMIT2data, Leiden Centre of Data Science (LCDS) and SURFsara.
Digital technology cross-cuts all scientific domains. Our understanding of the Universe, dealing with the challenges of climate change and discovering new energy sources, analyzing population dynamics, or tracking athletes' performances are just a couple of areas where digital technology is being used to enhance scientific research.
The cross-cutting aspect means that technologies used in one field can be applicable across other fields. This annual symposium is an opportunity to meet with researchers from academia and industry, students, data scientists, scientific administrators, CIOs and CTOs dealing with the challenges and potential of digital technologies; from the humanities to physics and beyond.
