This chapter describes the contribution that the ATLAS Collaboration is making to the emerging cultures and practices of e-science. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have played a crucial enabling role in the development and operation of the ATLAS detector. Beyond making possible the simulation of progressively elaborate models of the detector itself and providing data-processing resources for the detection, recording, and analysis of particle-collision data, the new ICTs have provided the infrastructure needed for the coordination of a complex scientific ecosystem spread around the globe. The chapter looks at how ATLAS and the other Large Hadron Collider experiments, through their roles as lead users of these new ICTs, are changing the way that science is done.

Keywords:   ATLAS Collaboration, e-science, information and communication technologies, Large Hadron Collider
