High-performance computers have become essential to research in many disciplines across the Illinois campus, from astronomy to biology to chemistry on through the alphabet to zoology. The Illinois Campus Cluster is a campuswide resource that meets this need for research computing cycles. Find out how two Illinois researchers, Dr. Andre Schleife with the department of Materials Science and Engineering, and Dr. Julian Catchen with the School of Integrative Biology, are using the cluster to answers some fascinating research questions.
The VR@Illinois campus network, in partnership with the Virtual Reality Club at Illinois, presents: Virtual Reality (VR) Demo Day on Friday, August 30, 2019, from 1pm to 5pm.
Faculty, students, and staff are invited to join us at multiple sites across campus on VR Demo Day to explore how these technologies are being used in higher education. Visit each participating site to demo over ten different types of VR and AR headsets and experience immersive programs simulating archaeological digs, 3D anatomical pregnancy simulation, 3D art and modeling, 360 Videos, Google Earth, games, and more. Come and learn about what VR and AR resources are available to you across campus.

Holly Bik and Titus Brown are continuing their exciting series of workshops focused on “Speeding up Science”. The second workshop will take place on October 23-25, 2019 at UC Davis, and travel funding for all accepted participants is being generously sponsored by the Moore Foundation.
Months after its original advocates Gov. Bruce Rauner and Mayor Rahm Emanuel left office, a huge research facility proposed for the Near South Side still has a heartbeat and appears to be making progress with their successors.
But whether the proposed Discovery Partners Institute actually comes to fruition and prospers under Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Mayor Lori Lightfoot still is uncertain.
Two years in and a collection of feedback later, the Research IT Portal was ready for a new look and some fantastic new features to better help researchers find the technology help they need to advance their work. Let's dive in!
IHSI has extended the deadline for faculty nominations to participate in the complete National Institutes of Health (NIH) Grant Writing Series during the 2019 fall semester. Junior faculty (years 2-4) may nominate themselves with a letter of support from their department head, a copy of their CV, and a brief summary of their research interests. Please submit your nomination to Maggie Berg by July 12, 2019.
