What’s Next for Campus Cyberinfrastructure? ACTI Responds to the NSF ACCI Reports.


“In February 2009, a joint workshop of the EDUCAUSE Advanced Core Technologies Initiative Campus Cyberinfrastructure Working Group (ACTI-CCI) and the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC) issued a report and recommendations that addressed the challenges and strategies for developing a coherent cyberinfrastructure from local campus to national facilities. The report concluded that it is not only practical but also optimal to solve a large number of computational problems at the campus level.The joint report immediately preceded the formation of six task forces by the NSF-wide Advisory Committee for Cyberinfrastructure (ACCI), which were charged with investigating long-term cyberinfrastructure issues.”
