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 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis.
PTI hosts national and international conferences at IU frequently. Doing so enables a larger number of IU faculty, staff, and students to attend than might otherwise (saving travel costs and time). Attendees present their research and learn more about a particular topic of interest. Hosting conferences also helps to confirm IUs reputation as a national research institution as well as to introduce reseachers from around the world to Bloomington and the state of Indiana.
