Projects local to Exeter was also discussed, allowing challenges and solutions to be shared.

DCC Lab Lunch: Musings & Visions on e-Science Workflows, Provenance, and Finite Model Theory

Edinburgh, 26 March 2007
Bertram Ludaescher, Department of Computer Science & Genome Center at the University of California, presented "Musings & Visions on e-Science Workflows, Provenance, and Finite Model Theory" at this informal (and free) lab lunch. Scientific discovery is increasingly data-driven and dependent on effective and efficient means to deal with a data deluge. Scientific workflows capture and automate data management, visualisation, and analysis tasks with the ultimate aim to accelerate scientific knowledge discovery.
