Purdue CI Days
Purdue CI Days 2010 aims to broaden the use of cyberinfrastructure, or CI, with expert presentations and panel discussions by faculty members already taking advantage of CI resources ranging from cutting-edge supercomputers to classroom discussion tools.
Purdue CyberInfrastructure Days 2010 will showcase technologies to enhance research, teaching and research funding. The program will focus on how faculty members, research staffers, or graduate students can benefit from these technologies. Participants from any field are welcome.
The event is scheduled Dec. 8-9 in Fowler Hall in the Stewart Center and the Purdue Memorial Union. Read more.
