Fall 2014 NUIT Tech Talks

Topics in Research Computing: Research Data Sharing – December 4

The creation of large volumes of scientific research data presents technological challenges in collection, analysis and sharing of significant amounts of information across the world. Sharing this data requires a flexible, secure network with high capacity and rapid data transmission. Rapid sharing of data between researchers at different institutions improves scientific investigations and speeds up the path to discovery. During the course of this Tech Talk, presenters will:

  • Discuss trends in deploying dedicated research networks to facilitate collaborative ‘Big Data’ flows
  • Present the resource-rich environment of the Chicago region
  • Preview Northwestern’s pilot High Performance Science Network (HPSNet), which will provide enhanced network services to campus researchers

Time: 11 - 11:45 a.m.
