Cyberinfrastructure workshop attracts leading young researchers

Tom Hacker, associate professor of computer and information technology, led an inaugural cyberinfrastructure workshop in Arlington, Va., in June with Suzanne Shontz, assistant professor of computer science and engineering at The Pennsylvania State University.

Funded by the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) new Office of Cyberinfrastructure, the workshop brought together the country’s leading young researchers (NSF CAREER award recipients) to discuss new topics in the field. Hacker and Shontz are both recent NSF CAREER awardees.
