IMPORTANT: 50 selected students (Brazilian and foreign students from any country) will receive full financial support for travel, hotel and meal costs.

Modern science is interdisciplinary and data-intensive. For instance, in the 1000 Genomes Project (www.1000genomes.org), the comparative study of 629 individuals has already generated 7.3 TB of data. Analogous situations exist in fields such as astronomy, agriculture, social sciences, etc. Ten years ago, the problem was how to obtain data. Today, the bottleneck is the need for new computational strategies and tools so that scientists can manage these massive volumes of heterogeneous, distributed, data, so that they can generate new knowledge from the processing, analysis and visualization of the data. This launched the basis of the so-called e-Science: the combination of advanced research in computer science and mathematical modeling to allow and accelerate research in other knowledge domains.

The São Paulo School of Advanced Science on e-Science for Bioenergy Research (ESPCA-eScienceBioenergy) was designed to disseminate important e-Science topics on data-intensive research and knowledge discovery. Participants will have the opportunity to complement their expertise on different topics such as:

* Biomedical image analysis and visualization
* Computer-oriented approaches and applications
* Data-oriented approaches and applications
* Extreme scale approaches and applications
* High-performance computing
* New e-Science application areas and opportunities
* Scientific databases and workflows
* Systems biology and bioinformatics

The School will be held CTBE (http://ww.bioetanol.org.br/english/) in Campinas, SP, Brazil and will consist of mini-courses, lectures and technical visits to the laboratories of CTBE. The event will be held in English. The eSciBioenergy is part of the FAPESP ESPCA Series.
