University Week: Information technology needs present challenge, interviews show (eScience Institute)

University of Washington eScience InstituteUW Director of News and Information Bob Roseth writes in University Week about a large-scale study of the computing needs of the UW research community. One hundred and twenty-five researchers were interviewed in what CSE professor and University of Washington eScience Institute director  Ed Lazowska calls the most comprehensive study of its kind yet conducted. “No other university has conducted such a balanced study of top researchers’ information technology needs. What we have found is a rich texture of IT needs, because these researchers are using computing in increasingly sophisticated ways.”

Results of the study will be presented at a Catalyst Spark session on Friday, February 20 at 1:00PM in 220 Odegaard on the UW Seattle campus.
