UW–Madison ranks as one of the most prolific research universities in the world. The research happening on our campus ranges from experimenting in the lab to cure diseases, to analyzing the mysteries of the universe, to studying neutrinos in the South Pole, to high throughput computing. And that’s just scratching the surface! No matter what the research is, technology plays a key role. This guide is meant to be a high level overview of the technologies provided by UW–Madison that may help you with your research.
A great starting point is your local IT staff (if available). They may have great information about the resources you have locally to help with your research. Additionally, Campus Computing Infrastructure (CCI) staff can answer any questions you may have and connect you with the right group. Contact CCI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
