How the Web can change the way we do Science
Modern day research could use a hard refresh. In recent years, we've seen an explosion of activity and push for more "open science",  from increased access to content and data to new tools and technology to help us address bottlenecks slowing down discovery. But for all of that development, the system is still moving slowly, gaps in training and skills still exist, and we're not moving forward in a coordinated fashion. This talk will look at how we can  advance the mission of more open, collaborative, web-enabled science, and how, together, we can influence the culture of science by demonstrating new and open ways to conduct research on the web.

Director, Science, Mozilla
I lead the science program at Mozilla, where we work to make open research less of an ideal and more a norm. I care deeply about the web and research efficiency, and have worked on problems surrounding them at Digital Science, Creative Commons and MIT.

Keynote- Combustion Modeling and Co-Design
Jacqueline H. Chen has contributed broadly to research in petascale direct numerical 
simulations (DNS) of turbulent combustion focusing on fundamental turbulence-
chemistry interactions. These benchmark simulations  provide fundamental insight into 
combustion processes and are used by the combustion modeling community to develop 
and validate turbulent combustion models for engineering CFD simulations.  In 
collaboration with computer scientists and applied mathematicians she is the founding 
Director of the Center for Exascale Simulation of Combustion in Turbulence (ExaCT).  
She leads an interdisciplinary team to co-design DNS algorithms, domain-specific 
programming environments,  scientific data management and in situ uncertainty 
quantification and analytics, and architectural simulation and modeling with combustion 
proxy applications.  She received the DOE INCITE Award in 2005, 2007, 2008-2015 and 
the Asian American Engineer of the Year Award in 2009.  She is a member of the DOE 
Advanced Scientific Computing Research Advisory Committee (ASCAC) and 
Subcommittees on Exascale Computing, and Big Data and Exascale.  She is the editor of 
Flow, Turbulence and Combustion, the co-editor of the Proceedings of the Combustion 
Institute, volumes 29 and 30, and is a member of the Board of Directors of the 
Combustion Institute.
