Advances in Geosciences, Natural Sciences, and Humanities: Significance of Knowledge, Processing, and Computing
by Prof. Dr. Claus-Peter Rückemann, Leibniz Universitaet Hannover / WWU Muenster / North-German Supercomputing Alliance, Germany

This tutorial focuses on the aspects of knowledge, processing, and computing being increasingly important to geosciences, geoscientific application and information system scenarios, even the more as multi-disciplinary information from natural sciences and humanities is getting involved.

The tutorial introduces into long-term knowledge handling and classification. It presents High End Computing resources used for processing and computing and discusses issues of requirements and operation for advanced scientific computing environments.

Regarding advanced computing and collaboration, the tutorial introduces into basics of decision making and resources planning. Case studies for geoscientific and archaeological information systems show knowledge and computing resources usage as well as operation and lifecycle aspects. Thus the tutorial discusses existing application scenarios and how the interests and needs of users and disciplines, services, and resources providers can be respected in order to generate long-term benefits from creating knowledge resources and using collaboration frameworks.

Some focus questions are:

- What is long-term knowledge from the geosciences view and how can we handle information and knowledge?

- What does processing and computing mean in geosciences and other disciplines?

- How can information content and context be preserved for long-term sustainability?

- Which diversity of knowledge, workflows, and resources does exist in geosciences?

It is intended to have a dialogue with the audience on experiences regarding these topics and applications.

This tutorial is addressed to all interested users, disciplines, especially geosciences, as well as providers of computing and service resources. There are no special informatics prerequisites necessary to take part in this tutorial.
