SEASR cyberinfrastructure technology will be leveraged by the Cultural Informatics project of UIUC’s Institute for Advanced Computing Applications and Technologies (IACAT), which combines a faculty-initiated research in its academic units with the advanced technology capabilities at NCSA.

Cultural Informatics, led by Michael Ross (Krannert Center for the Performing Arts), will “apply information science and technology to the creation and comprehension of human experience, to the understanding and expression of the human condition, and to the revelation and communication of human values and meaning. This may include the creation of new aesthetic works, public engagement, formal and informal education, the performing arts, museum and other exhibition venues, and design strategies that affect society.” Donna Cox (NCSA) and Guy Garnett (Music/Seedbed Initiative) serve as co-PIs.
