Topic: Transforming Scholarly Communication
Guest: Lee Dirks - Director, Education & Scholarly Communication / 
Microsof=
t
External Research

In the future, frontier research in many fields will increasingly require
the collaboration of globally distributed groups of researchers needing
access to distributed computing, data resources and support for remote
access to expensive, multi-national specialized facilities such as
telescopes and accelerators or specialist data archives. There is also a
general belief that an important road to innovation will be provided by
multi-disciplinary and collaborative research =96 from bio-informatics and
earth systems science to social science and archeology. There will also be
an explosion in the amount of research data collected in the next decade -
petabytes will be common in many fields. These future research requirements
constitute the 'eResearch' agenda. Powerful software services will be widel=
y
deployed on top of the academic research networks to form the necessary
'Cyberinfrastructure' to provide a collaborative research environment for
the global academic community.

The difficulties in combining data and information from distributed sources=
,
the multi-disciplinary nature of research and collaboration, and the need t=
o
move to present researchers with tooling that enable them to express what
they want to do rather than how to do it highlight the need for an ecosyste=
m
of Semantic Computing technologies. Such technologies will further
facilitate information sharing and discovery, will enable reasoning over
information, and will allow us to start thinking about knowledge and how it
can be handled by computers.

This talk will review the elements of this vision and explain the need for
semantic-oriented computing by exploring eResearch projects that have
successfully applied relevant technologies=97and anticipated impact on
scholarly communication as we know it today. It will also suggest that a
software + service model with scientific services delivered from the cloud
will become an increasingly accepted model for research.

Lee Dirks is the Director of Education & Scholarly Communications in
Microsoft=92s External Research division, where he manages a variety of
research programs related to open access to research data, interoperability
of archives and repositories, preservation of digital information as well a=
s
the application of new technologies to facilitate teaching and learning in
higher education.

This event will be webcast live; for more information and a complete
