Cyberinfrastructure Days

CI Days is a two-day event (10/24/13 - 10/25/13) which presents an opportunity for faculty and students to understand the benefits that cyberinfrastructure can bring their scholarly pursuits, to see what others are doing with cyberinfrastructure, and to learn what resources are available on campus, across institutions, and nationally. More importantly, this is an opportunity for the MSU community to share information about cyberinfrastructure resources and their use in research. The event will feature: 1) Nationally renowned research leaders from multiple disciplines of study addressing how advanced technologies enable their scholarly work, 2) Posters showcasing CI-enabled research at MSU, and 3) Resource fair featuring CI resources available to MSU researchers. What is CI? The National Science Foundation defines CI as a collection of advanced technologies and services to support scientific inquiry. This includes: 1) Computing clusters and high performance computing systems; 2) Data management, data integration, and data storage systems; 3) High speed networks; 4) Data mining and data visualization; 5) Collaboration and security tools; and 6) The people who design, build, and run these systems. CI Days is coordinated by the Institute for Cyber Enabled Research (iCER) and IT Services Research Support. CI Days is jointly sponsored by the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies and the Acting CIO and Director for Information Technology. CI Days is based on an initiative originally supported by the National Science Foundation in 2010 to support the implementation and use of cyberinfrastructure at research institutions.
