dc.description.abstract Indiana Governor Frank O'Bannon symbolically lit the fiber of the I-Light network on December 11, 2001. I-Light is a unique, high-speed fiber optic network connecting Indiana University Bloomington, Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis, and Purdue University West Lafayette with each other and with Abilene, the national high-speed Internet2 research and education network. This unique university-owned high speed network connects three of the Indiana's great research campuses. One year after the lighting of the network, we invited researchers from Indiana University and Purdue University to come together to discuss some of the research and instructional achievements that have been made possible in just one short year of the existence of I-Light. The results were dramatic: on December 4, 2002, more than 150 researchers gathered together in Indianapolis to discuss research and instructional breakthroughs made possible by I-Light. en
dc.description.sponsorship The I-Light Applications Workshop 2002 was sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology and CIO, Indiana University; and the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology and CIO, Purdue University. I-Light was made possible by a special appropriation by the State of Indiana. The research described at the I-Light Applications Workshop has been supported by numerous grants from several sources, mentioned in the individual presentations included in this proceedings volume. Many of the scientific research projects discussed in this volume have been supported by the National Science Foundation and/or the National Institutes of Health. Some Purdue projects also received support from Indiana's 21st Century Fund. Multiple presentations featured work supported by the Lilly Endowment, Inc., through grants to Indiana University in support of the Pervasive Technology Laboratories and the Indiana Genomics Initiative, both at Indiana University. Purdue University projects received support from the National Science Foundation and the 21st Century Fund.
