Advances enabled by cyberinfrastructure, informatics, and computing
Each year OVPIT and SOIC collaborate to put on a display of IU computer science, informatics, and cyberinformatics innovations at the annual SCxy (IEEE / ACM Supercomputing conference).
PTI also hosts a national or international conference at IU once every two years (sometimes more frequently). Most recently, PTI hosted the Galaxy Community Community Conference which brought hundreds of biologists and bioinformatics experts to IU, and enabled many IU faculty, staff, and students to attend locally in Bloomington.
