This project, headed by UMSI Professor of Information Daniel Atkins III and U-M Chief Information Officer Laura Patterson, helped to establish the annual Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Days, an interactive two-day conference held on-campus that brings together more than 200 U-M researchers who rely on large-scale computational tools and methods for research. CI Days gives these researchers an opportunity to learn more about advanced computing technologies that are helping to spur new discoveries and breakthroughs in a wide range of disciplines.
