Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Days 2012

CI Days 2012 was a two-day interactive event held in November aimed at helping members of the U-M community learn more about advanced computational tools and support available for research in a wide range of disciplines.

The program included keynotes by well-known experts, hands-on tutorials, and discussions. See the CI Days 2012 agenda for details.

Students shared their research through a poster competition (with cash prizes). See poster competition winners.
