Cyberinfrastructure Days

Much research is data-driven. It relies on complex data sets or uses modeling and simulation to examine ideas and concepts that cannot be studied directly. This research often requires advanced data, data storage and access, high-end networking, computing resources and advanced training of support staff to use tools effectively. During the Cyberinfrastructure Days symposium, academic and industry researchers will address these aspects and discuss availability, training and implementation that will enable universities and their partners to effectively build, support and use cyberinfrastructure resources.

CI Days provides an opportunity for faculty, students, researchers, and educators to become aware of and to engage in the use of cyberinfrastructure resources that are available on and from campuses.
