Cyberinfrastructure for the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences


This research bulletin describes a framework for cyberinfrastructure for the humanities, arts, and social science (HASS) disciplines that is rooted in the history and challenges of those disciplines, as well as the working practices of faculty scholarship. It also describes the work of The Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (I-CHASS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, which serves the national research and education communities by making tools available for high-performance computing, communication and collaboration, data collection and analysis, geospatial inquiry, and visualization.
