GIS Day 2011

Every year the GAL lab brings national GIS Day home to Notre Dame by hosting an event here on campus with the goal of building a community of interest around the display and manipulation of geospatial data. This year's event, held in Eck Auditorium in the Eck Visitor's Center, on Friday, December 2, opened with a welcoming reception and poster session, followed by a series of presentations discussing large scale remodeling in the Great Lakes region. Notre Dame's Jarek Nabrzyski, Director of the Center for Research Computing, gave the welcoming remarks to open a full afternoon of lectures. More information on the speakers and the event can be found on the GAL website.

Summer Scholars 2011

From June 20th through July 1st, 2011, ten talented high school students from around the nation participated in a two-week summer program, organized by the University of Notre Dame’s Summer Scholars program and hosted by the Center for Research Computing (CRC).
