Senior computer science majors Shawn Edwards and Brandon Hall are two of only three students in Kentucky to have been chosen to attend the EPSCoR Cyberinfrastructure Student Engagement Program at Clemson University in South Carolina. They will begin the program by spending three days starting February 21 at Clemson. Representing Murray State University, they will attend a kick-off/orientation meeting and workshop then will continue the program through bi-weekly webinars.
Upon successful completion of the program, Shawn and Brandon will attend SC12 in Salt Lake City, Utah. SC12 is an international conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis. Upon return they will evaluate Murray State University for its CI capabilities. This program provides Shawn and Brandon all-expense paid travel which is funded by the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR.)
