Manchester Uni professor wins eScience Award

Share this on social media:

Carole Goble, professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester, has been awarded the inaugural Jim Gray eScience Award at the 2008 Microsoft eScience Workshop in Indianapolis.

The Jim Gray eScience award, from Microsoft External Research, recognises the contributions of a researcher/scientist in the application of computing technology to scientific insight/innovation. The award was set up to honour the huge contribution that Jim Gray made to the field.

The goal of the cross-disciplinary workshop was to bring together scientists from diverse research disciplines and give them the opportunity to share their research and their experiences of how computing is shaping their work and thus providing new insights into facilitating scientific discovery. The focus was on discussion of the computing technologies that enable scalable solutions in order to address scientific grand challenges.
