The California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) is pleased to announce the launch of its UCI-specific web site, The site focuses on both the division's overall research activities and current projects, and also provides numerous ways for the campus community to engage with Calit2.
The new site includes information about available resources in the Calit2 building, such as:
  • An online reservation system that allows users to check meeting room availability, including the trium and auditorium
  • Detailed information about the facility's labs and project rooms including manager contact information
  • And a system for reserving time on equipment in the first-floor clean rooms and microscopy center.
The site's events page highlights the division's upcoming events and includes an easy link for requesting inclusion on Calit2@UCI mailing lists. The site also features a newsroom containing news and feature stories, as well as current and back issues of Interface magazine.
We encourage you to explore and learn more about the many opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration that Calit2@UCI offers the Irvine campus.

  • Date: March 3, 2008
  • Time: 8:00 am - 5:00pm
  • Brains R Us: The Science of Educating
  • Location: Salk Institute, La Jolla, CA
  • Live Webcast

The meeting will take place in San Diego at the Salk Institute on March 3, 2008 and will be taped by The Science Network for distribution on the Internet. The Science Network has developed an outstanding reputation for using a similar town hall format to bring together world leaders to discuss topics of high social relevance to a broad audience, such as their recent meetings on stem cell research, sleep, and addiction. The meeting will be sponsored by the NSF Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center. This meeting was partly inspired by several recent meetings and editorials on the topic of the interface between neuroscience and education. However, most of these have been scientists presenting their views to educators. The goal of this town hall meeting will be to inform and foster a more balanced and open dialogue between leading educators, school administrators, state and federal officials responsible for education policy and research funding, and cognitive and neuroscientists, so that we can derive a better understanding of each other's perspectives, needs and responsibilities. This event is co-sponsored by the UCSD Office of Research Affairs, the Scientific Learning Corp., the UCSD Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind, and the UCSD division of Calit2, which will stream the video in real time in conjunction with The Science Network.
