The CSIRO Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science

eResearch planning for success

Workshop summary

Planning for Success – Panel of eResearch staff to answer Research Planning questions from an ICT perspective

This workshop will be an interactive panel session where senior members of the Scientific computing group will answer questions from research staff.

The services represented include

  • Scientific Computing Services representing
    • Research Applications Support
    • HPC Systems
    • Visualisation
  • Data services
  • IMT Science solutions

The aim of the workshop is to provide the community with an awareness of the IMT strategy and future plans. It will also illustrate how the various eResearch services and integrated platforms available to CSIRO researchers can help support new and current research activities.

Depending on the problem domain being tackled, this might include exploring ways of integrating a solution from the range of existing and potential services available to a CSIRO researcher both from within the organisation and externally.


Part 1 of the workshop has the Deputy CIO for Scientific computing present the IMT strategy for the next few years

Part 2 of the workshop includes the panel working directly with the audience (in groups) to understand what research is underway what is working well, what could be working better and identifying appropriate technology choices that might assist. Also Part 2 of the workshop looks at “blue sky’ possibilities and asks “if only I had ……., then I could…..” (

Part 3 of the workshop explores a number of successful use-cases that have stemmed from engaging with the IMT teams. This helps consider alternatives to the way technology could assist research to succeed.

Researchers are encouraged to bring specific questions along for discussion and be prepared to share preferred technology choice and methods.


No essentials but a healthy dose of curiosity and a wiliness to participate actively will be greatly appreciated!

The C3DIS 2017 will bring together researchers with computational and data science specialists from CSIRO, publicly funded research organisations and other invited institutions and organisations. This will enable attendees to share their science outcomes and learnings, and build a community of practice around Computational and Data Intensive science.

Free for CSIRO staff and invited participants
