Research Cyberinfrastructure Day

University of Nevada, Reno Cyberinfrastructure Day

Do you use technology in your research?

Do you want to learn more about how technology support for research is evolving?

Do you want to contribute to the conversation?

CI Day can help!

The last Research CI Day was held March 12th, 2020 inside the Ballrooms at the Joe. The next Research CI date has not yet been set, but please be sure to check back here for updates in the future.


Research Cyberinfrastructure Day (CI Day) is an annual "inreach" event that engages the University community on the role of technology in research and how we can better support our research faculty. Join us for informational sessions on local and national CI resources and practices, as well as flash presentations by University researchers and their technology workflows!

The keynote address for Research CI Day 2020 was given by Dr. Dana Brunson, the Executive Director for Research Engagement for Internet2.

The inaugural CI Day was held on March 27th, 2019. Participants were able to converse with University leadership and technology providers about campus Cyberinfrastructure (CI) and research technology support. It was a successful program that brought fresh perspectives and insights to University leadership straight from researchers. Please see the post-event article from Nevada Today: Researchers, Technology Providers, and Leadership Discuss Vision for University Cyberinfrastructure. If you are interested in learning more about Cyberinfrastructure at the University, please visit the Cyberinfrastructure web page and contact CI Director, Dr. Scotty Strachan by email at 


The annual CI Day is a wonderful opportunity to connect with researchers, technology providers, and leadership from the University.
