Early Bird Deadline: 24 February

The International Symposium on Grids and Clouds (ISGC) 2014 will be held at Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan from 23 to 28 March 2014 (Sun. ~ Fri.), with co-located events and workshops.  

“Bringing the data scientist to global e-Infrastructures” is the theme for ISGC 2014. The last decade has seen the phenomenal growth in the production of data in all forms by all research communities to produce a deluge of data from which information and knowledge need to be extracted. Key to this success will be the data scientist – educated to use advanced algorithms, applications and infrastructures – collaborating internationally to tackle society’s challenges.

ISGC 2014 will bring together researchers working in all aspects of data science from different disciplines around the world to collaborate and educate themselves in the latest achievements and techniques being used to tackle the data deluge. In addition to the regular workshops, technical presentations and plenary keynotes, ISGC this year will focus on how to grow the data science community by considering the educational foundation needed for tomorrow’s data scientist.

ISGC is an opportunity for delegates to meet their peers, to share knowledge and experiences, and to obtain an understanding and more possibilities of future e-Science research directions, developments and collaborations. We look forward to meeting you at ISGC.  For more symposium information and detailed topic description, please visit http://event.twgrid.org/isgc2014/index.html. We cordially invite and welcome your participation!!
