Register for the eResearch Showcase


23 August 2010

To provide information about e-research activities in current and potential research projects, and to discuss your priorities, the University is hosting an eResearch Showcase on 6 October.

eResearch is the application of advanced information and communication technologies to the practice of research. It is known to boost the effectiveness of research across diverse disciplines by increasing interaction and enhancing access to data - so much so that the Australian Government has allocated over $390M for eResearch activities.

eResearch covers:

  • Online collaboration in multi-partner projects
  • Data management within and between research groups for appropriate sharing and re-use
  • Tools for analysis, simulation and/or modelling, including high-performance computing.

The Showcase will discuss areas where assistance may be available to researchers, for example:

  • Preservation of large or small data against loss and to meet compliance requirements
  • Electronic lab notebooks for collaboration, remote access and digital time-stamping
  • Web tools to manage, display and/or share research data
  • Management of metadata to describe data and document meaning
  • How to get over the initial "energy hump" and gain effectiveness and efficiency from eResearch.
