Director, Alliance for Community Technology
University of Michigan
In 2001 the National Science Foundation established an Advisory Committee for Cyberinfrastructure, and charged the members with three broad goals:
- Evaluating the performance of the PACI Program in meeting the needs of the scientific research and engineering community.
- Recommending new areas of emphasis for the NSF Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering that will respond to the future needs of this community.
- Recommending an implementation plan to enact any changes anticipated in the recommendations for new areas of emphasis.
This session will review the committee’s investigations, preliminary findings, and recommendations.
