Stephen Salter, Emeritus Professor of Engineering Design, School of Engineering and Electronics, University of Edinburgh, talked about his work at this informal (and free) lab lunch.

John Faundeen, Archivist, U.S. Geological Survey, Center for Earth Resources Observation and Science, talked about the reasons for appraising data as well as reviewing processes developed for scientific records by the U.S. Geological Survey Center for Earth Resources Observation and Science. A tool developed to support the process has been considered a best practice by the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration and has been successfully applied to 24 scientific collections. The Library and Archives of Canada also requested the tool.

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.

Wang-Chiew Tan, Department of Computer Science, University of California, Santa Cruz, presented "Debugging Schema Mappings with Routes" at this informal (and free) lab lunch.

Graham Pryor, StORe Project Manager, University of Edinburgh, talked about StORe [external], which connects source repository content (data) to output repository content (papers), at this informal (and free) lab lunch which started at 1.00pm.
