This multi-disciplinary, international conference on e-Research was organized by a consortium of research projects in association with the journal Information Communication and Society (iCS). It sought to stimulate and inform multi-disciplinary research on the development, use and implications of ICTs (such as the Internet) in shaping research across the disciplines, by bringing together research from key e-Research projects that are examining the role of the Internet, Web and the Grid in research.

The conference also sought to facilitate scholarly communication and publication on this topic, and help foster a broader public understanding of the significance of this area to the sciences and humanities as well as to the public at large.
