CI Days 2012
Wednesday, November 7 + Thursday, November 8, 2012
Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Days 2012 is an interactive two-day conference that brings together more than 200 U-M researchers who rely on large-scale computational tools and methods for research. Newly reformatted, this interactive conference is an opportunity to learn more about advanced computing technologies that are helping to spur new discoveries and breakthroughs in a wide range of disciplines.
This is an opportunity for faculty, students, and staff from across campus to:
- share information and ideas about advanced, integrated computation and information resources and their use in research and learning
- learn from nationally renowned leaders
- hear about the future of CI-enabled discovery and learning
- attend hands-on tutorials, presentations, and panels
- present research and learn about others’ research at a poster session (with cash prizes).
Dr. Ian Foster is director of the Computation Institute, a joint institute of the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory; an Argonne Senior Scientist and Distinguished Fellow; and the Arthur Holly Compton Distinguished Service Professor of Computer Science.
Dr. Chris Johnson is the founding director of the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute at the University of Utah, and distinguished professor of computer science with faculty appointments in the departments of physics and bioengineering. Watch his TEDx talk on digital visualization of large data sets.
