"eScience" has become a buzzword, but

  • what is behind this term -- apart from PR?
  • how relevant is it for top-level research?
  • what is its relevance for the Max Planck Society?

After two years of eScience Seminars held within the MPG which led to several concrete results, we invited all directors to discuss these topics together with external speakers at an event at the evening right before the Section meetings in February.
