Web Seminars and Podcasts:
- November 5, 2009: Cyberinfrastructure in a Carbon-Constrained World. EDUCAUSE Annual Conference.
- June 8 2009: Cyberinfrastructure opportunities - perspectives on the NSF ARI-R² and MRI. The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently released two new grant solicitations that have implications for the development of cyberinfrastructure at institutions of higher education throughout the US - the Academic Research Infrastructure Program: Recovery and Reinvestment (ARI-R²) solicitation and MRI (Major Research Instrumentation). The Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC) and EDUCAUSE jointly sponsored a Web discussion on these NSF CI funding opportunities and the return on cyberinfrastructure investments. Speakers included Jim Bottum, Art Ellis and Ed Seidel.

ACTI Campus Cyberinfrastructure (ACTI-CCI) Working Group
The EDUCAUSE Advanced Core Technologies Initiative (ACTI) comprises working groups that focus on particular areas of core technologies in order to identify emerging areas that may need particular attention, specific pain points that a working group may be able to help resolve, and other issues that would benefit from the attention of a group of leaders in the specific area of focus. ACTI-CCI's mission is to help educational institutions develop institutional strategies and plan their resource deployment in this emerging and evolving technological landscape and to help their users harness and optimize the power and capabilities of these new integrated IT tools and systems for educational and research applications in higher education.
These activities may include sponsorship of workshops, conferences, white papers and documents on these topics, and interactions and close cooperation with federal funding agencies and other sponsors to assure that grants for research and educational activities target the key components and essential cyber infrastructure tools, methods and technologies. Learn more about the working group here.
