Exploratory Workshop: What is Data-Intensive Science?

Date: 17th-19th December 2014

Place: Jury's Inn Hotel Exeter

This workshop is the first event in the project ERC project [DATA_SCIENCE], organised by Sabina Leonelli from the Exeter Centre for the Study of the Life Sciences and funded through a European Research Council Starting Grant. It brings together the key participants in the project, aiming to start long-term discussions around what constitutes data-intensive science, to compare the ways in which different scholars and fields conceptualise and enact data practices, and to agree on the set-up, methods and themes to be pursued by the project team and collaborators over the next three years. Speakers will be presenting the specific sciences that they are researching, the methods that they use and the themes that they are interested in exploring.

The workshop is meant to provide an informal occasion for discussion, and will therefore not showcase full papers except for the keynote lecture provided by Professor Luciano Floridi. This keynote will target the intersections between philosophy of science and philosophy of information in ways so as to stimulate data-related discussions.


A full programme for the workshop is available here.
