Keynote on 'Scientific Workflows: Business (Workflows) as Usual?'
Professor Bertram Ludaescher (Ph.D.)
Thu, 10 September, 09:15-10:45
Bertram Ludäscher is professor at the Department of Computer Science and a member of the faculty at the UC Davis Genome Center, both at the University of California, Davis. He is currently also a research fellow at the Graduate School for Library and Information Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research focus includes modeling, design, and optimization of scientific workflows and databases, data and workflow provenance, and knowledge representation and reasoning for scientific workflows and scientific data integration. He is currently involved in several collaborative scientific data and workflow management projects, including the DOE Scientific Data Management (SciDAC/SDM) Center project and NSF projects to develop scientific workflow technology (Kepler-CORE), e.g., for bioinformatics and environmental observatory applications (REAP, COMET). Prof. Ludäscher received his M.S. (Dipl.-Inform.) in Computer Science from the University of Karlsruhe in 1992 and his Ph.D. from the University of Freiburg, Germany in 1998. Until 2004 he was a research scientist at the San Diego Supercomputer Center and an adjunct faculty at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego.
