Second Workshop - Technical Meeting - 15th June 2006
Researching e-Science Analysis of Census Holdings
The second workshop in the ReACH series built on the conclusions from the All Hands Meeting
(14th June 2006, UCL). Participants were a smaller group of those from
interested parties, meeting in order to ascertain the technical issues

Research Computing facilities. This provided the technical information
necessary for implementation of a full scale project.
This workshop meeting aimed to ascertain:
- How the data will be delivered to UCL
- The size of the data
- The structure of the data
- The function of searches to be undertaken on the UCL Research Computing facilities
- The duration of the project
- The number and type of employees required
- The equipment required (to purchase)
- The equipment required (access to existing kit)
- Software required
- Software development issues
- Security issues
- Any other technical issues which may arise
