Chicago Computes

Part of the Forward Initiative at UIC, the Chicago Computes program provides fully-subsidized access to high-performance computing resources, secure computing environments for sensitive datasets, and research data storage solutions. It also provides broad access to research computing facilitators, data scientists, and visualization specialists to aid in project planning and problem solving to help achieve the research and scholarship goals of our faculty. All UIC faculty are eligible to request resources under this program, which can be shared with their lab-members or other UIC collaborators.

High-Performance Research Computing

High-performance computing resources for research and educational use.

IRB Technology Security Assessment

When the risk of using a specific technology for human subject research activities is unknown, the UIC Institutional Review Board (IRB) may require that a security assessment of the technology be performed. The Technology Solutions Information Security and Privacy Office works with investigators to perform a technology security assessment that can be provided as a response to the IRB.

Qualtrics Surveys

A web-based survey platform for creating, publishing, and analyzing survey data.

Research Consulting

To meet unique technical needs of our researchers, ACER provides one-on-one consultation services to all campus researchers.

Research Data Storage

Storage optimized for research data needs. Storage options include: high performance computing (HPC) storage, general research storage for semi-frequently accessed data or light-archival purposes, and preservation storage for completed research projects with rarely accessed data.

Research Data Transfers and Management

Globus is a platform designed to transfer and manage large amounts of data quickly and reliably across the web. Using this service, researchers can move, share, sync, and discover data via a convenient web interface.

Secure Computing Environment

The Secure Computing Environment is a secure environment that mitigates the risks of working with electronic personal health information and other types of high-risk data. The SCE eases the burden on the researcher of having to configure and ensure that their computational work environment has been configured with the appropriate security controls and to minimize the risk of exposing high-risk data.

Software for Research Computing

Request installation of software on one of UIC's research computing systems.

Equipment Lending

Students, instructors, and researchers can request short-term and long-term loans of various equipment to support their academic needs.
