The third cohort of CI-PIRE students (CyberInfrastructure - Partnership for International Research and Education) presented their research accomplishments at the Eighth LA Grid Summit October 28-29, 2010. FIU's School of Computing and Information Science, FAU and LA Grid Parnters were joined this year by partners from UNCC and UPRM. Posters were featured in the third annual poster contest, as well as panel discussions focusing on future directions for collaborative research within the LA Grid consortium.

PIRE is an NSF sponsored program intended to advance global partnerships in cyberinfrastructure research, innovation, and education. FIU-SCIS, FAU and UNCC continue to nurture and expand this consortium of researchers and educators. It is exciting to see these collaborations serve our students and research partners so effectively. The summer 2010 cohort of 27 students engaged in research with industry and universities across eight nations. The program's multicultural, professional working experience will provide the student participants with experiences and a collaborative network that will benefit them throughout their careers.

FIU's School of Computing and Information Science gathered with its LA Grid and FAU partners to welcome the first cohort of PIRE (Partnership for International Research and Education) students back from their international assignments. One track of the Sixth LA Grid Summit was dedicated to learning about the research collaboration these students experienced in the summer of 2008. The Summit sponsored a poster contest showcasing students' work.

Dr. Yi Deng, SCIS Dean and PIRE PI led a panel of international faculty collaborators and PIRE students in a discussion focused on "How to Establish Sustainable International Research Collaborations?"

PIRE is an NSF sponsored program intended to advance global partnerships in technology research, innovation, and education. FIU-SCIS and FAU have built a strong consortium of researchers and educators and are successfully leveraging these collaborations to better train their students via the PIRE program. Our 2008 summer students engaged in research with industry and universities across five nations. This multicultural, professional working experience will provide the students participants with experiences and a collaborative network that will benefit them throughout their careers.
