NSF Awards $3M to Expand FABRIC Cyberinfrastructure

A new $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) will expand FABRIC, a project to build the U.S.’s largest cyberinfrastructure testbed, to four preeminent scientific institutions in Asia and Europe. The expansion represents an ambitious effort to accelerate scientific discovery by creating the networks needed to move vast amounts of data across oceans […]

The Role of Cyberinfrastructure in Science: Challenges and Opportunities

Ewa Deelman from the University of Southern California gave this Invited Talk at SC19. “This presentation examines selected modern scientific discoveries, such as the detection of gravitational waves from the CI perspective. It aims to answer the following key questions: first, what were the key CI solutions that enabled a particular scientific result? and second, what were the challenges that needed to be overcome?”

NSF Grant to help develop cyberinfrastructure across Midwest

The National Science Foundation has awarded a $1.4 million grant to a team of experts led by Timothy Middelkoop, assistant teaching professor of industrial and manufacturing systems engineering in the University of Missouri’s College of Engineering. The researchers said the grant will fill an emerging need by providing training and resources in high-performance computer systems. “There is a critical need for building cyberinfrastructure across the nation, including the Midwest region,” said Middelkoop, who also serves as the director of Research Computing Support Services in the Division of Information Technology at MU. “It is our job as cyberinfrastructure professionals to facilitate research and work with researchers as a team to identify the best practices.”
