Who we are:

Institutions of higher education in Arkansas and West Virginia and Oklahoma have partnered to build advanced cyberinfrastructure that is advancing science in several domains and transforming the practice of information technology services.


What we do:

CI-TRAIN is creating a self-sustaining environment in which cyberinfrastructure is used to create and deploy:

  • A multi-faceted workforce that is empowered to apply, sustain, and create cyber-based systems, tools, and services over the long term.
  • A nationally competitive computational and visualization environment shared across the partnership, featuring shared and new supercomputing clusters for computation, visualization support, and training.
  • Visualization display resources, including medium-scale stereo display devices not currently available and enhanced immersive visualization capabilities.
  • Software and new high-end data capture devices in support of the creation of new digital content.
  • Networking upgrades.

Cyberinfrastructure Campus Champions:

CI Campus Champions are located at each of the participating institutions. They are working to broaden the user base and expand the operational support and use of available infrastructure.
