Hosted by LONI with CCT as co-host
Johnston Hall 338
October 30, 2012 - 10:30 am

Cyberinfrastructure activities at NSF fall into a number of categories, including advanced computing infrastructure, data, learning and workforce development, networking, and software.  This talk will discuss each of these areas, but will focus on software as typical of the other areas. The talk will also be interactive.  It will try to explain how cyberinfrastructure efforts work across NSF science and engineering areas.
