I solicit your input for planning a campus update on the UAB cyber-infrastructure during August 2008. IT is willing to host this as a half-day event and could be coordinated with new faculty and graduate students coming to campus for next academic year.
Please review the preliminary outline for a half-day CI update given below and send me, Bob, or John-Paul your input and/or willingness to make a presentation. Also, let us know best date(s) for this half-day workshop.
PS: Circulate to others on campus whom you believe will be interested in participating...
