LifeWatch - ICT infrastructure for Biodiversity Research in Europe

LifeWatch is a European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) project committed to provide the ICT infrastructure for European Biodiversity Research. In its preparatory phase from 2009 to 2011, basic components of the infrastructure have been defined. These include a Reference Model and a Construction Plan. The general architecture will be service-oriented with workflows being the basic paradigm to support "in-silico" research, complemented by semantic discovery and composition mechanism as well as provenance tracking. The present talk introduces to the problems to be dealt with and to proposed solutions as well as touching on the specific problems of biodiversity research.
