2 nd APAN eScience Workshop Chris Elvidge U.S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service, National Geophysical Data Center 325 Broadway, Boulder, Colorado USA Tel Fax January 27-28, 2004 East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawaii
In the Past Waves of Biological and Cultural Exchange Occurred Between Asia and the Pacific Islands
Two-Way Voyaging after Settlement According to Hawaiian oral traditions collected in the 19th century, voyaging continued between Hawai'i and the South Pacific after the original settlement of Hawai'i. The motives given for voyaging are various: 1. Maintaining Family Connections. 2. Marriage. 3. Burial in Homeland. 4. Escaping Flood and Famine. 5. Acquiring Mana from the Homeland. 6. Family Quarrels and Unhappy Love Affairs. 7. Sightseeing and Adventure.
Alternate Approach to Connectivity
eScience Commitee eScience is broadly defined as science activities that rely on high bandwidth network connections. This may include the transfer of data, building / operating distributed archives, distributed data processing, access to documents or training, remote operation of facility instruments, and interactive collaborations. APAN has a natural role in escience through providing bandwidth and network operating tools. The APAN ad hoc eScience committee has been asked to conduct three workshops and to provide a report to APAN on ways to promote eScience in the AsiaPacific region. A permanent eScience committee could: Provide a venue for discussion of eScience between scientists and network administrators. Promote eScience initiatives among APAN members. Promote eScience initiatives between APAN and other international groups. Conduct of eScience demonstration projects. Conduct of eScience training and outreach.
