This talk will review the findings and visions from a recent report of the US National Science Blue-Ribbon Advisory Panel on Cyberinfrastructure that is having significant impact on initiative develop in US science and engineering research communities, and broader impact in humanities communities and higher education at large. [Atkins served as chair of this Panel.]

Cyberinfrastructure is a layer of technology, together with human resources and institutions that provides the basis for building functionally complete virtual communities for knowledge creation and dissemination, including activities defined as ‘e-science’ in the UK and elsewhere. The talk will review the status of the response to the report at the NSF and other research and learning institutions.
