  Description:
  E-Science faces unprecedented challenges in the coming decade, in terms of: (1) the data-intensiveness of the work (as the data being processed, distributed and analyzed moves from terabytes to petabytes to exabytes), (2) the complexity of the data (extracting detail from overwhelming datasets generated by instruments), (3) the timeliness of data transfers (whether bulk transfers for remote storage, smaller transfers for distributing computing and analysis, or real-time transfers for collaboration), and (4) the global extent and multi-level peer group structure of the collaborations, leading to the need for international teams to collaborate and share data-intensive work in fundamentally new ways. This panel discusses the key roles and issues facing new networking infrastructures taking shape worldwide to tackle the data tsunami coming this decade.
