The Cyberinfrastructure Lab, located in SEM 255, is a new research and development laboratory created in the summer of 2013 in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at UNR. The creation of CIL was made possible by grants received from NSF EPSCoR for the Research Infrastructure Improvements (RII) projects The Solar Energy-Water-Environment Nexus in Nevada (Track 1, 2013-2018) and Collaborative Research: The Western Consortium for Watershed Analysis, Visualization, and Exploration (WC-WAVE) (Track 2, 2013-2016).
