About Cyberinfrastructure and Advanced Research Computing

 

ITS’s CIARC team works to identify research needs across Mines and aims to provide research computing resources and over-arching services and infrastructure to further research and meet the vision set by Mines@150. CIARC will help faculty by identifying IT solutions and help facilitate their research by providing assistance in areas such as: large-scale compute, evaluating cloud vs. on-premise computing, storage and transfer of research data, project management in regards to IT solutions, etc. By providing consultation services and by acting as a liaison between faculty and ITS groups, CIARC is able to efficiently provide a customized solution to fit research needs.

Governing Committees

Overview

There are many individuals and groups that make up RSS; in addition to CCIT staff in various groups, day-to-day collaborations include members the Library, Office of Research Administration, and Research and Technology Transfer. It is expected that this coordination will become more formal.


Research Technologies Advisory Committee (RTAC)

RTAC is comprised of representatives from CCIT and domain science research.  The purpose of RTAC is to provide guidance and support for cyberinfrastructure at Mines, and to advise Mines IT Executive Committee on current and future trends.  RTAC aims to fulfill the following goals:

  • Increase support Mines research through an increasingly robust cyberinfrastructure
  • Increase communication and awareness of existing cyberinfrastructure in support of Mines research
  • Increase utilization and leveraging of Mines cyberinfrastructure and research support services resulting in a positive impact to research efforts
  • Provide technologies and education which lead to a culture of collaboration and sharing within the Mines community
