One of the sessions in the JISC CETIS Conference 2008 Programme
If you were able to plan a 10 year programme of trans-disciplinary research and technology (ICT) development, what challenge would you address and what would your programme look like? What challenges can you see where there are identifiable questions to be answered? What methods could be used to help to answer the questions? How should we deal with complexity? What disciplines should collaborators come from?
This will be a blank-sheet session with no pre-arranged presenters. Come ready to talk about the big picture and ready to write on flip charts.
The media:GrandChallenges.ppt slides from the session illustrate the approach taken (which helps explain the photographs posted to Flickr).
After coffee break we had a free discussion. This is available as four audio files in MP3 (around 6Mb each) and Ogg Vorbis (around 25Mb each) formats:
