Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science (CNS) Center
CNS's mission is to advance datasets, tools, and services for the study of biomedical, social and behavioral science, physics, and other networks. A specific focus is research on the structure and evolution of science and technology (S&T) and the communication of results via static and interactive maps of science. The Center's administrative home is in the Herman B Wells Library at Indiana University.
The CNS Center co-organizes international workshops and conferences, promotes network science and visualization at national and international initiatives, organizes and finances a weekly Network Science talk series, holds an annual open house, hosts about 10 national and international visitors/faculty each year, and organizes regular workshops on the infrastructures and tools it develops and supports. In addition, it develops custom interactive data visualization applications for both public and private sector clients in need of innovative ways to interpret and utilize their data.
CNS research is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and private foundations. Past and current clients include the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council in the UK (BBSRC), TD Ameritrade, NETE, and Cummins, Inc.Affiliated Faculty include:
