Thank you for attending

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the organisers, we thank you for joining us at the Collaborative Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science 2019 (C3DIS 2019), held the week of 6 – 10 May at the National Convention Centre, Canberra.

C3DIS aims to build a national community of practice of scientists, researchers, and computing, data and information management specialists. All of these professionals share a common interest: the production of breakthrough science outcomes that require large scale, complex computations and analyses to be carried out over massive data sets.

As in previous years, C3DIS 2019 welcomed contributions from all science domains in Publicly Funded Research Agencies, NCRIS Network Capabilities, Tertiary Education Institutions and Research Centres.

One of this year’s special themes is Understanding the Earth. C3DIS 2019 is expecting contributions and participation from a variety of related geosciences areas – geology, water, land, weather and climate, and contributions in developing and analysing models, computations and data sets in their respective areas.

Who are the conference stakeholders?

Researchers, Scientists and Technical Experts from the Publicly Funded Research Agencies, including CSIRO, Defence Science Technology Group, Geosciences Australia and Bureau of Meteorology.

Why attend?

This conference represents a unique networking opportunity for Australian scientists, researchers and technical experts from various domains and organisations to gather and learn from each other’s success stories through the conference sessions. They will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of technical discussions and workshops, and to listen to leading keynote speakers.

What are we offering participants:

To be informed about the current state of computational and data-intensive science from an Australian context. Hearing from internationally and nationally renowned experts and scientists about their experiences and views of the changing nature of scientific discovery and the impact of advanced computational and data systems on their research outcomes. Participants can share and exchange “war stories” and successes, both formally at presentations and at networking opportunities during the conference and workshops.

For the technologists and scientists interested in improving their currency and developing their technical skills by participating in up to day long workshops covering both established and emerging areas such as Machine Learning, Visualisation as well as providing introductions to scientific computing and data governance.

Venue & Destination

C3DIS 2019 will be held at the National Convention Centre, Canberra.
