Location: CoRE Auditorium, located on the 1st floor of the CoRE Building, Busch Campus

The Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2) invites you to join us for our first open house to learn about who we are, what we do, and how we can help you with your computational research.

  • Learn about Excalibur, an IBM Blue Gene /P supercomputer maintained by RDI2 and available to the entire Rutgers Community.
  • Hear from researchers who have used Excalibur in the past year.
  • Discover how other researchers have benefitted from collaborations with RDI2 (faster algorithms, etc.)

Please join us at 9am for coffee and light snacks, and stick around from noon to 1pm for pizza, refreshments, and to meet the RDI2 researchers and staff, and network with other computational researchers here at Rutgers.
