Campus IT Organizations
The University of Texas at Austin is home to many organizations that provide information technology services and support IT research and initiatives. Although not directly under the Chief Information Officer, these organizations provide students, faculty, and staff with important IT resources.
Center for Business, Technology and Law - Designed for professionals and academics interested in information technology, business strategy, and law and regulatory policy.
Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics - Provides research support and opportunities for students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty interested in the use of computational approaches in solving biological problems.
Center for Perceptual Systems - The Center includes faculty, students and staff engaged in vision research, especially within the general areas of visual perception, visual neurophysiology, computer vision and image processing. The Center is actively involved in both basic and applied research, and in the training of students in a cross-disciplinary atmosphere.
Center for Research in Electronic Commerce - The Center's current research activities actively seek to provide an efficient and effective framework for global electronic commerce and the digital economy through an integrated research agenda that focuses on correlative effects among network infrastructure, products, processes, payment systems and policies, using markets and economic analysis as the central unifying theme.
Computer and Vision Research Center (CVRC) - Devoted to the analysis and understanding of images, signals, and data, and to the development of the computer resources required to accomplish these tasks. Research objectives include the development of computational models, algorithms, and architectures for computer vision.
Computer Engineering Research Center - Research is currently being carried out in the fields of VLSI Testing and Design for Testability, Formal Verification, Design and Evaluation of Fault-Tolerant Systems, Sequential Synthesis, Binary decision diagrams, Timed/Stochastic systems, VLSI CAD/ Design Automation, Distributed Systems, Computer Architecture, Software Engineering and several other key areas.
Computer Writing and Research Lab - Provides resources and facilities for teaching and learning in networked computer environments, including undergraduate and graduate courses in writing, literature, and the Technology, Literacy, and Culture interdisciplinary concentration. A unit of the Division of Rhetoric and Composition, the CWRL includes five networked classrooms, a multimedia lab, and a staff prep lab.
Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment (DIIA) - DIIA strives to enhance teaching effectiveness, support innovative technology-enhanced learning, offer a comprehensive portfolio of instructional support services, provide and expand assessment methods, and coordinate Web-based outreach efforts.
IC2 Institute - IC2 (pronounced "IC squared") is an interdisciplinary research unit at UT Austin that advances the theory and practice of entrepreneurial wealth creating.
Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) - ICES provides infrastructure and intellectual leadership for developing outstanding interdisciplinary programs in research and graduate study in computational sciences and engineering and in information technology. It supports nine research centers and numerous research groups.
Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) - The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) promotes the advancement of science through computation by providing advanced scientific and technical computing resources to academic researchers at UT Austin and across the nation. TACC also includes the ACES Visualization Laboratory, which includes a nearly 360 degree projection room for interactive, collaborative data visualization.
