CI Days at Purdue 2010

Real-life examples from faculty members already taking advantage of technological resources offered by Purdue to advance research and research collaborations, to win grant funding, and to enhance students' classroom experience. Participants from any field welcome.

Purdue CI Days 2010 will showcase technologies to enhance research, teaching and research funding.

Just about any faculty member, research staffer, or graduate student can benefit from these technologies, which make up Purdue's "cyberinfrastructure," or CI.
