Information Technologies for eScience: A Preliminary Report from the University of Washington

Tuesday, March 24, 2009


This ECAR research bulletin discusses the key findings of the first two phases of the University of Washington eScience conversations, including important trends related to the need for data management expertise, computing power and network access, data collection and analysis, and communication and collaboration. It also covers the short- and long-term impacts of these findings for higher education. While the priorities in this bulletin are specific to UW, many of the needs are likely to apply to researchers at other universities.
