Ransomware attacks have been in the news lately, including an attack over the Fourth of July weekend that impacted up to 1,500 organizations. In this edition of “ITS In-Depth,” we speak with Syracuse University Chief Information Security Officer Chris Croad…
Explore the University’s Robust Research Computing Resources
The upcoming series of Computing Colloquies is designed to help campus researchers identify and make the most of the diverse array of campus computing resources available at Syracuse University. All faculty, students and staff conducting, planning or supporting research activities are invited to the sessions.
- Daniel Acuna, assistant professor in the School of Information Studies, will present “Improving Scientific Innovation: A data Science Perspective.” Without tools, no scientist can keep up with new research trends and funding efforts. In this talk, he will show how he creates new kinds of tools to substantially accelerate linking publications and grants. Also, he will highlight how artificial intelligence and big data make this possible and how the University’s research computing infrastructure and the iSchool are supporting these new efforts.
Thursday, Oct. 13. 3-4:30 p.m. Katzer Collaboratory, 347 Hinds Hall. Light refreshments will be served.
- Shikha Nangia is an assistant professor of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering in the College of Engineering and Computer Science. She leads an active research group with focus on computational modeling of complex biological interfaces including, the blood-brain barrier, cancer drug delivery, bacterial membranes, antimicrobial peptides and self-assembled materials. Her group’s use of University computing resources enables insights that propel us forward toward solving the blood-brain barrier puzzle and consequently aiding in designing novel therapeutics to treat the brain-related ailments.
Monday, Oct. 24. 12:30-2 p.m. Katzer Collaboratory, 347 Hinds Hall. Lunch will be included.
These sessions will explore how computing resources help researchers take on new and greater computational tasks, enhance research productivity, increase the competitiveness of grant submissions and advance scientific discovery across many disciplines. Participants will have opportunities to:
- connect with other researchers on campus;
- participate in an ongoing campus dialogue centered on research computing;
- receive information on available resources and navigating the landscape; and
- meet and engage SU’s research computing staff.
The sessions are hosted by Information Technology Services (ITS), in collaboration with the Research Computing Advisory Council (RCAC).
