Strategic collaboration among the University of Illinois, the City of Champaign, a student-driven hackathon and two National Science Foundation programs—the US Ignite Smart Gigabit Communities Program and the Midwest Big Data Hub Program—kicks off this weekend
From February 23-25, university students from around the nation will converge at the Thomas M. Siebel Center for Computer Science to participate in HackIllinois, a student-driven hackathon. One of the components of this year’s event is the Reverse Pitch Challenge.
The Bio Imaging Lab at Beckman Institute decreased their processing time from over 260 days to just a few hours by leveraging Amazon Web Services at Illinois, provided by Technology Services. This is their story.
This competitive fellowship program provides a unique opportunity for faculty and researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign by offering seed funding for startup collaborative research projects.
Amazon Web Services at Illinois gives students and faculty the opportunity to explore and optimize data analysis.
Thanks to the campus contract between Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, both faculty and student researchers have access to Amazon’s cloud computing platform, and they’re already doing amazing things.
Katherine Kendig, a research coordinator and partner with Public Affairs at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), reports that students are capitalizing on the partnership to optimize data analysis in computational genomics research.

Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center will host a webinar on December 7 from 2-4 p.m. CST to share tips on writing a successful XSEDE allocation proposal. This webinar will introduce users to the process of writing an XSEDE allocation proposal, and cover the elements that make a proposal successful. This webinar is recommended for users making the jump from a startup allocation to a research allocation, and is highly recommended for new campus champions. Please promote this webinar to interested people in your network via this link.
Dr. Lindsay Clark, a Research Specialist in the department of Crop Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, needed a gel imager for her work. She didn’t want to spend $10,000, so built her own for considerably less.
AITS and Technology Services are partnering to provide Database Administrative services (DBA). The joint DBA team will be able to serve the University community and expand their service offerings. By partnering, Tech Services and AITS will have more support resources for customers, and will be able to improve their offerings.
If you need assistance with database services, you can still contact support the way you previously have, but you may end up talking to some new people.
