Eventos : FAPESP São Paulo Advanced School on e-Science (full grants for students) 

FAPESP São Paulo Advanced School on e-Science

SPAS e-SciBioenergy

October 22-26, 2012

CTBE - Campinas - São Paulo - Brazil


IMPORTANT: 50 selected students (Brazilian and foreign students from
any country) will receive full financial support for travel, hotel and
meal costs.
Modern science is interdisciplinary and data-intensive. For instance,
in the 1000 Genomes Project (www.1000genomes.org), the comparative
study of 629 individuals has already generated 7.3 TB of
data. Analogous situations exist in fields such as astronomy,
agriculture, social sciences, etc. Ten years ago, the problem was how
to obtain data. Today, the bottleneck is the need for new
computational strategies and tools so that scientists can manage these
massive volumes of heterogeneous, distributed, data, so that they can
generate new knowledge from the processing, analysis and visualization
of the data. This launched the basis of the so-called eScience: the
combination of advanced research in computer science and mathematical
modeling to allow and accelerate research in other knowledge domains.

The São Paulo School of Advanced Science on e-Science for Bioenergy
Research (ESPCA-eScienceBioenergy) was designed to disseminate
important eScience topics on data-intensive research and knowledge
discovery. Participants will have the opportunity to complement their
expertise on different topics such as:

* Biomedical image analysis and visualization
* Compute-oriented approaches and applications
* Data-oriented approaches and applications
* Extreme scale approaches and applications
* High-performance computing
* New eScience application areas and opportunities
* Scientific databases and workflows
* Systems biology and bioinformatics

The confirmed speakers include:

1. Agma Traina - UNiversity of São Paulo - USP

2. B. S. Manjunath - Director, Center for Bio-image Informatics,
Inversity of California - Santa Barbara - UCSB.

3. Christophe Ambroise - Laboratoire Statistique et Génome - CNRS - France

4. Claudia M. Bauzer Medeiros - University of Campinas - UNICAMP

5. João Eduardo Ferreira - UNiversity of São Paulo - USP

6. Marta Mattoso - Federal University of Rio de Janeiro - UFRJ

7. Susanna Assunta Sansone - e-Research Center, University of Oxford

8. Thom Dunning - Director, National Center for Supercomputing
Applications (NCSA) - University of Illinois.

9. Yan Xu - Microsoft Research

The School will be held at CTBE (http://www.bioetanol.org.br/english/) in
Campinas, SP, Brazil and will consist of mini-courses, lectures and
technical visits to the laboratories of CTBE. The event will be held
in English.


There are available slots for a total of 60 students and 10
researchers. Among those, 25 foreign students and 25 Brazilian
students will be selected to receive financial support for travel,
hotel and meal costs (i.e. full financial support). The selection of
students getting financial support will be done by the organizing
committee based on CVs and additional documentation as indicated in
the Registration form web-page.
