August 14, 2019
The Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) began hosting a Cyberinfrastructure (CI) webinar series in May 2018.
The OAC - CI Webinar Series Theme and Purpose: The webinar series will focus on the translational impact of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure and how cyberinfrastructure innovations have impacted science. The series will also explore emerging science needs and cyberinfrastructure challenges and opportunities for an integrated cyberinfrastructure ecosystem.
OAC’s overarching mission is to conceptualize, design, and implement advanced cyberinfrastructure that is critical to the advancement of all areas of science and engineering research and education. For over a decade, OAC has funded and coordinated exploration, development and provisioning of advanced cyberinfrastructure resources, facilities, and services. OAC’s investments span advanced computing, networking and cybersecurity, software, and data-focused cyberinfrastructure, as well as cross-cutting research and education programs.

The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2021 budget of $8.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
