E-Science (E-Research) Expert Seminar: Report on Proceedings

The 2004 AHRB e-science policy seminar aimed to identify the role that the outputs from the e-science programme and grid technologies might play in supporting arts and humanities research and teaching. The seminar was held on the 28th April at Senate House in London. The seminar comprised a small gathering of scholars from the arts, the humanities, computing science, and information science who are experts in their field, with an excellent understanding of the use and potential of ICT in scholarly research and communication. At least four of the participants are involved in e-science projects and the majority are actively engaged in research and teaching. This report summarises the issues, challenges and promise of e-science for the arts and humanities as identified during the seminar, and provides a set of recommendations intended to feed into the development of the AHRB ICT strategy and to assist in framing any potential arts and humanities e-science programme activity.
