Workshop Description
--------------------
Recent advances in biological, physical, and social sciences and engineering are increasingly being driven by our ability to discover, share, integrate and analyze disparate types of data. Advances in computing and communications (e.g., data grids and compute grids, sensor networks), community-driven efforts to annotate data sources and resources with metadata (ontologies), and statistically based machine learning algorithms for constructing predictive models from data have made it possible to exploit distributed networks of interconnected sensors, data sources, and computing resources in collaborative, integrative analysis of data. These developments, together with the ongoing transformation of many traditionally data-poor sciences into increasingly data-rich sciences, offer unprecedented opportunities for data-driven discovery in bioinformatics, environmental informatics, social informatics, health informatics, enterprise informatics, security informatics (among others). This has led to a compelling visio for cyberinfrastructure for collaborative e-science.

Consequently, there is a growing interest in e-science cyberinfrastructure as evidenced by several recent workshops and symposia on related topics: The 2006 Fall Symposium on Semantic Web for Collaborative Knowledge Acquisition (SWeCKa 2006), the 2006 International Workshop on Collaborative Virtual Research Environments (CVRE 2006), the 2007 IJCAI Workshop on Semantic Web for Collaborative Knowledge Acquisition (SWeCKa 2007), the 2007 AAAI Workshop on Semantic e-Science (SeS 2007), among others.
Against this background, the Workshop on Cyberinfrastructure for e-Science (CyIneS 2007) invites contributed papers from researchers in relevant areas of artificial intelligence (machine learning, data mining, knowledge representation, ontologies), information systems (information integration, databases, semantic web), distributed computing, and selected application areas to discuss research challenges and recent research advances in cyberinfrastructure for e-science spanning topics such as:

    * Distributed Data Mining
    * Distributed Knowledge Bases
    * Distributed Inference
    * Data Acquisition and Analysis Workflows
    * Semantic Data Integration
    * Knowledge Integration
    * Semantic Web Services
    * Semantic Grid
    * Service Composition
    * Web semantics
    * Data and Process Provenance
    * Selective Data and Knowledge Sharing
    * Collaborative Construction of Ontologies
    * Collaborative Construction of Workflows
    * Collaborative Virtual Research Environments
    * Publication and Dissemination
    * Applications, Benchmarks, Challenge Problems, and Case Studies in areas such as:
          o Bioinformatics
          o Health Informatics
          o Social Informatics
          o Cheminformatics
          o Environmental informatics
          o Materials Informatics
          o Geoinformatics 

The workshop will consist of a small number of invited talks, contributed talks, and informal discussions, and a wrap-up session. The workshop will begin with an opening session to introduce the workshop topics, goals, participants, and expected outcomes. The invited talks will give overviews of the key topics. Contributed talks (selected based on review by at least two members of the program committee), will represent a mix of new results based on completed work, work in progress, research challenges, and applications.

The workshop will consist of a small number of invited talks, contributed talks, and informal discussions, and a wrap-up session. The workshop will begin with an opening session to introduce the workshop topics, goals, participants, and expected outcomes. The invited talks will give overviews of the key topics. Contributed talks (selected based on review by at least two members of the program committee), will represent a mix of new results based on completed work, work in progress, research challenges, and applications.

The workshop schedule will allow ample time for informal discussion. The abstracts of invited talks and accepted contributed papers will be posted on the workshop webpage. Participants will be  encouraged to review the posted papers before they arrive at the workshop. The workshop will conclude with a wrap-up session summarizing the workshop.
