Computing Research Infrastructure (CRI) program,
under the Computer
and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Directorate of the
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.
