Guide to e-Science: Next Generation Scientific Research and Discovery
The fundamental principal in e-Science is based on the trend that procedures and practices of traditional way in which science is conducted are undergoing radical change. This change is based on the inclusion of modern cyberinfrastructure as part of the science, or experiment environment which includes not only the already ubiquitous high end computers, storage and network infrastructure, but also emerging Web technologies. This allows the exploration of previously unknown problems via simulation, generation and analysis of large amount of data, and global research collaboration. e-Science is inherently interdisciplinary allowing and promoting synergistic activities between different scientific disciplines rather than just between a single discipline and computer science.
The book aims to describe e-Science methodologies, associated tools & middleware, systems, applications and services. It will include e-Science concept, issues, principles and methodologies, as well as how various technologies and tools can be employed to build an essential infrastructure to support various research missions in many areas of science (e.g. particle physics, earth science, bio-informatics). For example, e-Science employs Grid computing as one of the major enabling technology contributors to make the e-Science vision a reality. It also includes using parallel computing and various distributed computing technologies such as SOA, collaborative computing, workflow, ontology and semantic Web to develop middleware, services and applications. As e-Science has made significant progress over the past 5 years, this book will also provide successful case studies on e-Science practice and application / service development in scientific and engineering disciplines. It covers areas such as infrastructure, computational resource management, data management, collaborative computing & workflow, middleware, application and service development.
Topic of interest includes, but not limited to:
e-Science concept , principles, philosophy, and methodology
Design patterns in e-ScienceWeb 2.0 and research 2.0 in e-Science
Workflow and simulation process automation
Semantic web and ontology in e-Science
Web service and SOA technologies in e-ScienceSecurity in e-Science
Service Level Agreement and QoS in e-Science
The emerging Cloud computing in e-Science
e-Science practice and novel applications
e-Science and Virtual Organization(VO)
Lessons learned and the future trend of e-Science
Expected readers include scientists, researchers, engineers and IT professionals who work in the fields of computational science (e.g. particle physics, earth sciences), parallel and distributed computing, Grid computing/Cloud computing, etc. The book also can be employed as a reference book for postgraduate students who study computer science.
The book is of series “Computer Communications and Networks” to be published by Springer.
