Formed in 2013, MU’s CI Council is composed of faculty and professional IT staff from all of MU’s schools and colleges. They meet monthly and welcome others to join them. The meetings often explore the research and CI needs of a particular lab or project. If you would like to participate, please contact the CI Council member in your school or college or Research Computing Support Services via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
MU’s CI Council is generally organized along school/college organizational structure. This allows each researcher to have an easily identifiable contact who serves as her/his representative. View the members list.
The MU CI Council meets on the 3rd Monday of the month from 3:30 to 5:00 in 4F51A Ellis Library.
Read the current CI Plan and the CI Council’s Focus Area Planning Update, both adopted March 21, 2016.
Please see Cyberinfrastructure Day 2019 for more details.
The Division of IT’s Research Computing Support Services (RCSS) group, directed by Dr. Timothy Middelkoop, provides research computing services and support for the campus. These services include a newly upgraded High Performance Computing cluster that we are continuing to expand, a new General Purpose Research Storage (GPRS) system with more than one Petabyte of research data storage, a 100-Gigabit AL2S connection to Internet2 that can provide direct high-speed connections to peer institutions, and a dedicated science DMZ that allows unrestricted access to Internet2. There are a number of grant-friendly investment services to allow researchers to obtain the capacity that a project requires without having the cost or complexity of managing these systems. If you have questions about research computing, including how you can strengthen your research funding proposals, please contact Timothy Middelkoop via email: email@example.com.
