SciPort: An Adaptable Scientific Data Integration Platform for Collaborative Scientific Research
Scientific data are posing new challenges to data management due to the large volume, complexity and heterogeneity of the data. Meanwhile, scientific collaboration becomes increasingly important, which relies on integrating and sharing data from distributed institutions. In this demo, we present SciPort, a Web-based platform on supporting scientific data management and integration based on peer-topeer architectures, where researchers can easily collect, publish, and share their complex scientific data across multiinstitutions. SciPort provides a general metadata based data model to capture the context description of experiments and link experiment data into comprehensive metadata documents, and supports a hierarchical organization of the overall data space for data browsing. SciPort takes two alternative "peer"-to-"peer" ( or peer-database-to-peer-database) based approaches to integrate scientific data: pure peer-topeer architecture and central server based peer-to...
