Robert Roe reports on Elastic Storage, a scalable, high-performance data and file management solution developed by IBM in collaboration with researchers operating the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Germany
The growing importance of high-performance computing (HPC) to modelling and engineering was highlighted this week by the award of a $1 million grant from the US Department of Energy (DOE)

The not-for-profit Open PHACTS Foundation (OPF) has announced its first three members - GlaxoSmithKline, Janssen and Roche. These new members will steer the future of the successor organisation to the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI)- funded Open PHACTS project
Teaching staff at the National Institute of Applied Sciences in Lyon (INSA-Lyon), one of the leading engineering schools in Europe, have implemented Maple T.A. to administer student tests
ESTECO, a provider of numerical optimisation solutions, will be a technical partner of Sir Ben Ainslies bid to win the Americas Cup: the 163-year old trophy that has never been won by Great Britain
Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process
Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory
This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.
This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value
This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
