Title:Little eScience, Big eScience
Author(s):Crowston, Kevin; Ribes, David; Sawyer, Steve; Wiggins, Andrea
big and little science
Abstract:eScience refers to the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) to support scientific work. eScience is relevant to the iConference as eScience is both a potential mode of research and a topic of research that is particularly relevant to iSchools. However, we note that the most visible applications of eScience are in the “big” sciences and it is not clear if or how these ideas can be transferred to the “little sciences”. We propose a panel to address this question. The panelists will discuss how eScience ideas might apply in the “little” sciences, and some of the challenges and open research questions involved in such an application.
