Our new name recognizes IU's Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI), the world-class organization that since 2000 has solidified IU's reputation as a global leader in IT, developing and delivering innovative resources that advance research, education, industry and society. The latest NSF grant (see below) adds to the more than $50M PTI has already received in NSF support.
IU's Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI) and Global Research Network Operations Center (GlobalNOC) hosted "Our legacy. Your future" at the annual, international supercomputing conference in New Orleans, November 16-21.
After 7 years of service, the Quarry cluster will be retired from production on Friday, January 30, 2015. Account creation will be disabled on Friday, December 19, 2014.

Highlight: CyberDH–Bridging technology and the humanities
New to IU Research Technologies is the Cyberinfrastructure for the Digital Humanities group, led by Tassie Gniady, PhD. The CyberDH team supports scholarship and education for digital humanities by creating consultative and technological bridges between the needs of humanists and existing cyberinfrastructure.
Office hours: Tuesday 3-5 p.m. and Wednesdays 2-4 p.m. in the Scholar's Commons of the Herman B Wells Library at IU Bloomington.
According to IU Research Technologies Manager of Campus Bridging and Research Infrastructure Rich Knepper, living cyberinfrastructure implies a close link between technology and scientific outcomes. Science becomes part of the technology that supports it. His talk "Living cyberinfrastructures and their impact on scientific research" explored the evolving model of center-based cyberinfrastructure and some of the challenges that attend that model.
The new master's program addresses increased demand for jobs in big data and capitalizes on the breadth of study and research in computer science, informatics, information science, library science, and statistics at IU's School of Informatics and Computing. With online and blended options, the program can reach a wider spectrum of students nationally and abroad.
