MS-CC Community Webinars: Virtual Cyberinfrastructure 101 Series

The Minority Serving - Cyberinfrastructure Consortium (MS-CC) is launching a new Cyberinfrastructure (CI) 101 webinar series in 2023 to encourage, educate, and empower our community participants with tools and resources to make an impact on their campus IT infrastructure. 

The CI 101 series includes four virtual webinars scheduled this year. The series will culminate in a workshop this summer where participants can create their own CI plan and align their requirements with potential National Science Foundation (NSF) funding sources.

We are kicking off the CI 101 webinar series on February 17, 2023, from 1-2 p.m. ET with an introductory webinar on what technologies make up cyberinfrastructure, what a cyberinfrastructure plan is (and is not), and why your campus would benefit from having a cyberinfrastructure plan. The webinar series is free for MS-CC participants but registration is required. Not an MS-CC participant? Joining the MS-CC as a participant is simple, quick, easy – and free!
