"Cyberinfrastructure: Promises and Challenges"

Paul Messina
CyberInfrastructure--also known as e-Science, e-environment, the Grid-- promises to create a computing environment that provides convenient access to global data and computing resources for science, engineering, and education. The resources might be data archives, live instruments, experts, and computers. By having ready access to such resources, one can envision a revolution in the conduct of scientific research and education. There are a number of projects worldwide that are exploring the use of cyberinfrastructure and projects that are dedicated to the development of the software that will enable applications to find and use the resources worldwide. However, the state of the art in the software is not quite at the level of functionality and stability to support users without considerable effort. This talk will explore these promises and challenges and suggest ways to accelerate the emergence of a true global infrastructure.
