Grids and Clouds symposium in Taipei (ISGC 2013)

Share

The International Symposium on Grids and Clouds (ISGC) 2013 is held at Academia Sinica in Taipei in March 2013, with co-located events and workshops. The conference is hosted by the Academia Sinica Grid Computing Centre (ASGC).

ISGC 2013 brought together from the Asia-Pacific region and around the world, researchers that are developing applications to produce these large-scale data sets and the data analytics tools to extract the knowledge from the generated data, and the e-infrastructure providers that integrate the distributed computing, storage and network resources to support these multidisciplinary research collaborations.

In particular there was a session devoted to Humanities and Social Sciences applications, where, among the others, a presentation about project DCH-RP was illustrated by Roberto Barbera, highlighting the importance of developing best practices and a roadmap for the sustainable long term and short term preservation of digital cultural heritage.

Read the whole chronicle of the speech, titled Big Data Challenges in the Humanities and Social Sciences, in the GridCast blog.
