The Computing Research Infrastructure (CRI) program, under the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Directorate of the National Science Foundation (NSF), supports the acquisition, development, enhancement and operation of research infrastructure that enables discovery, learning, and innovation in all computing fields supported by CISE.  The main goal of the NSF/CISE CRI program is to provide infrastructure that enables high-quality computing research and education, and which extends the set of individuals and departments that are able to conduct such activities.


The goal of the annual CRI PI meeting is to allow PIs from all CISE CRI awards to meet and discuss their results, lessons learned, and challenges in setting up their infrastructures. Also, the meeting will act as a conduit for exposing PIs of CRI awards—who tend to be leading members of their respective departments—to important development related to national computing and networking infrastructure initiatives and how to best impact and benefit from such initiatives.
