To GGF14 attendees
The following panel at GGF14 will also be relevant to Semantic
Grid (if only because I'm on the panel and just might mention it ;-)
"HASS-RG panel - WUN Cultural Computing Grid"
Tuesday June 28 2.30-4pm in Windsor
More details below. Also don't forget the Semantic Grid and agents
session on Wednesday - please come along...
"Semantic Grids and the Agents Community"
Wednesday June 29 9-9.45am in Governor's Suite
I'm here at the event till Thursday if anyone wants to touch base
on any Semantic Grid things.
The WUN Cultural Computing Grid
Tuesday, June 28
2:30 - 4:00
This panel will discuss the creation of a WUN Cultural Computing Grid.
With the creation of the Cultural Computing Grid, we seek to establish a
knowledge base and technology infrastructure for on-demand-access to
digitized cultural artifacts. This nontraditional grid would provide
access to materials, support tools for individuals and communities from
populations who wish to access what may be a rich archive of heritage and
cultural materials available in various locations throughout the world .
but which for reasons of geography and/or access are not easily obtained.
The discussion will include the technical as well as the sociological
elements (social motivation and the challenges for developing a better
social network, the need for education, outreach and training) involved in
the creation of the WUN Cultural Computing Grid.
Our Objectives are:
. To prototype user-defined interfaces to the data-grid that are highly
flexible and simple to use for depositing, accessing and analyzing
. To document the process, design, implementation and communications of
the team producing the infrastructure and content and the resulting
knowledge base for presentation in scholarly journals, personal
journals, technology manuals, web blogs and books.
