Mark Birkin, U. Leeds: An architecture for urban simulation enabled by e-research


Model impact of demographic change for service provision in cities.

Construct a synthetic population, with fully enumerated households; Demographic projections: dynamically model individual state transitions; look at particular application domains.

Components, MoSeS (Modelling and Simulation for e-Social Science): Data : Analysis : Computation : Visualisation : Collaboration. Aim to use secondary as well as primary data. User functionality through JSR-168 portlets. Moving to loose coupling with web services; allows workflow enactors like Taverna.

e-infrastructure through sharing resources through the Grid.

Complication that IT has to catch up, so still need to develop both IT and scholarship at the same time.
