Dec. 10 -- The inaugural Jim Gray eScience Award was presented to Carole Goble, professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester, at the 2008 Microsoft eScience Workshop held in Indianapolis, this week.
The Jim Gray eScience award, from Microsoft External Research, recognises the achievements of a researcher/scientist in the application of computing technology to scientific insight/innovation. Carole Goble was the first recipient of this prestigious award.
The 2008 Microsoft eScience Workshop, "Facilitating Time to Discovery" was held from Dec. 7-9, at Indiana University at IUPUI.
The Microsoft eScience Workshop focuses on data-centric computing and the facilitation of time to discovery for science -- from cloud computing to semantics, and from genomics to virtual research environments.
Microsoft Research was fortunate to partner with Professors Geoffrey Fox and Dennis Gannon from Indiana University and the IEEE eScience Conference. In its fifth year, the conference now features panels, tutorials, birds of a feather sessions, and open discussions looking at the transformation taking place in the scientific community as a result of the deluge of data generated across disciplines, boundaries and borders.
Tony Hey, corporate vice president of Microsoft External Research, presented the closing keynote address and announced the first winner of the Jim Gray eScience Award, an award recognizing the achievements of scientific innovation -- in doing so this remembers the huge commitment and contribution that Jim made to the field.
