[InetBib] Langzeitarchivierung & Grid

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

wir freuen uns, Sie zu einem Workshop zum Thema GRID und Langzeitarchivierung
(LZA) einladen zu können.

Im Rahmen der diesjährigen  German e-Science Conference (GES, s.u.) vom 2.-4.
Mai in Baden-Baden veranstaltet nestor, das Kompetenznetzwerk
Langzeitarchivierung, einen Workshop mit dem Titel:

"Digitale Langzeitarchivierung und Grid: Gemeinsam sind wir stärker?"

Das Thema Grid ist ein Schwerpunkt des nestor II Projektes. Im Rahmen dieser
Aktivitäten wurden drei Expertisen in Auftrag gegeben, die das Thema unter
folgenden Gesichtspunkten behandelt:
- Anforderungen von e-Science und Grid-Technologie an die Archivierung
wissenschaftlicher Rohdaten"
- Standards und Standardisierung im Kontext von Grid-Technologien und
- Synergiepotenziale zwischen GRID- und e-Science-Technologien für die

Der Workshop stellt die Expertisen vor, diskutiert die bisherigen Ergebnisse
und wird die Kooperationsmöglichkeiten von Grid und digitaler
Langzeitarchivierung ausloten.

Der Workshop wird am Mittwoch, dem 2. Mai 2007 von 11:00 bis 13:00 Uhr im
Raum 1 des  Kongreßhauses in  Baden-Baden stattfinden. Die Konferenzsprache
ist Deutsch.

Wir freuen uns, Sie bei diesem 1. LZA/Grid Workshop begrüßen zu dürfen.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen vom nestor Team,
Heike Neuroth


Information zur GES Konferenz:

German e-Science Conference Set for May 2-4

  The first German e-Science Conference (GES2007), May 2-4 in 
  Baden-Baden, Germany, will bring together the international experts 
  from four different e-Science areas: grid computing, knowledge 
  networking, e-learning, and open access. The conference language is 
  English, and the program is now available at 

  The conference -- supported by the German Federal Ministry for 
  Education and Research -- serves as the forum for developers and users 
  of e-Science applications, from international institutions to the IT 
  industry, to present the results of the latest research and 
  product/tool developments, and highlight related activities from 
  around the world.
  Keynote speakers are Ian Foster (ANL), Andreas Reuter (EML), Gerhard 
  Weikum (MPI). Highlight speakers are Dieter Kranzlmueller (Linz), Carl 
  Lagoze (Cornell), David Kirsh (UCSD), and Sijbolt Noorda (UVA). Four 
  parallel sessions on the e-Science topics will be held during the 
  second and third day:
  * Grid Computing 
  In the future, grids will be an essential tool for scientific progress 
  in many areas. To this end, grids must provide a wide range of 
  services tailored to the needs of a large number of research 
  communities. However, the proliferation of grids differs significant 
  among those communities. Therefore, most grid services are 
  predominantly focused on the early adopters and developers. Due to 
  their grid experience, those groups are already working on defining 
  complex services to enhance their existing solutions while newcomers 
  in the grid world at first must specify their particular needs and the 
  differences to already established grid solutions. Finally, grid 
  middleware experts need to find new approaches to enable 
  interoperability between grids of different communities. It is the 
  goal of this conference to foster the interaction and collaboration 
  between those different interest groups. 
  Topics are, among others: grid interoperability; adoption of grids in 
  science; advances of grid research; new approaches in grid middleware; 
  and examples of innovative grid solutions. 
  *  E-Learning 
  e-learning can be considered as an instrument to provide new 
  organizational contexts for learning (e.g., removing the boundaries of 
  time and space within the organization of learning environments). 
  Furthermore, it has the potential to improve the learning process 
  itself (e.g., by providing new modes of content delivery or a higher 
  intensity of interactivity). Within that frame, new learning 
  environments have been developed exploiting the potential of new 
  technologies for new types of learning. What experiences have been 
  gained? What effects related to the objectives of the organizational 
  or psychological aspects of learning could be measured? To what extent 
  are the new developments sustainable? Has e-learning contributed to 
  leverage new learning cultures? 
  Topics are, among others: game-based learning; cyber media; augmented 
  reality; informal learning; self-organization of learning; and 
  business models. 
  *  Knowledge networking 
  Based on new technologies, research processes will be made easier, 
  improved and intensified. New ways of network-centric scientific work 
  will improve the effectiveness of scientists by thoroughly exploiting 
  the new technical opportunities (Internet, digitization, 
  communication, open access). Many aspects of scientific work( e.g., 
  information retrieval, processing, evaluation, distribution and 
  storage of information) will be influenced. Thus, it is necessary to 
  establish a sustainable infrastructure for scientific information, 
  communication and the distribution of research results. Through data 
  integration and networking of resources, the knowledge space offered 
  to the scientist will be seamlessly unfolded, equipped with innovative 
  services. The opening up of previously inaccessible material in 
  electronic form will allow interactive, collaborative work to be 
  carried out and new questions to be pursued. 
  Topics are, among others: sustainable infrastructure for scientific 
  information and communication; flexible, scalable and interoperable 
  software tools; new services for scholarly communication; integration 
  of new tools into existing scientific practice; innovative 
  subject-specific user interfaces, tools for meta-searches, specialized 
  searches and reference linking; data integration and networking of 
  resources; and environments for shared work with digital resources.
