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 http://roads.mcmaster.ca/documents/CFI%20Cyber-infrastructure%20Initiative%20Consultation%20Paper.pdf.


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.
