CFI is holding an information session on its proposed cyber-infrastructure initiative on Tuesday, June 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in MDCL-3024.  Details on the proposed initiative, which will be launched in October, can be found at

This initiative seeks to provide Canadian institutions and their researchers with the infrastructure required to conduct ground-breaking data-intensive and computationally challenging research in areas of strategic importance. To this end, the initiative offers an opportunity for:

·         The Compute Canada community to propose a set of capabilities and services that will meet the needs of Canadian researchers conducting data-intensive and computationally challenging research over the next five years; and

·         Institutions and their researchers to come together to propose cyber-infrastructure projects designed to create tailored and shared integrated datasets, data repositories or research data centres that will enable cutting-edge research on significant scientific, social and economic questions. These data-rich infrastructure resources could include the organization and integration of large and sometimes highly complex datasets in a research field as well as the development of analytical tools to fully exploit these datasets.

 CFI representatives will be on hand for any questions you may have.
