Session Abstract

Modern cyberinfrastructure (CI) creates a "distributed computer" with resources distributed in diverse geographic and administrative domains and the network providing the "backplane" for this computer. This session presents some of the major players in research and education (R&E) CI, and provides an overview of the "CI Days" program being developed to assist campuses in planning and implementing CI.

The CI Days program is being conducted in coordination with a number of organizations. With funding from the National Science Foundation and Department of Energy, TeraGrid and Open Science Grid build upon advanced networking to provide leading-edge collaborative computing infrastructure. Internet2 and National LambdaRail (NLR) provide the enhanced network backplane infrastructure, and the National Science Foundation's International Research Network Connections (IRNC) program provides international extensions. Internet2 also develops middleware tools to enable end users to reliably access CI resources. EDUCAUSE addresses policy and funding issues involved with implementing and operating CI.

Many universities struggle with the demanding and sometimes conflicting needs of researchers, faculty, students, IT service organizations, university administration, and funding sources. The CI Days program provides a forum to bring together campus faculty, researchers, and IT organizations with these national organizations to discuss requirements and strategies for advanced campus CI.
