Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Days 2013, a free, two-day conference aimed at highlighting data- and computation-intensive research and educating the U-M community about the advanced computational resources available on campus in a wide range of disciplines will take place on Wednesday and Thursday. The program includes keynotes by well-known figures in computational science, sessions on U-M resources, and a poster competition with cash prizes. An agenda is available here. Students and faculty will have an opportunity to share their research through a poster competition (with cash prizes of $750, $500, and $250). Poster abstracts must be submitted by October 28 to participate in the competition. Registration is recommended but not required; feel free to attend only those sessions that interest you.

CI Days is for U-M faculty, research scientists, graduate students, post-docs, research support staff, and undergraduates who either use or are interested in using advanced computing technology for research. Why attend? CI Days offers practical information on resources, services, and emerging technologies as well as the opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues of concern regarding the use of advanced computing in research. Keynote speakers:
- James Hilton, newly appointed dean of libraries and vice provost for digital education initiatives.
- Abby Smith Rumsey, a historian of ideas who is an expert in digital preservation.
