Oklahoma State University's Coalition for Advancing Digital Research & Education (CADRE) is a collaborative, campus-wide initiative jointly led by the Office of the Vice President for Research and the OSU Libraries that provides researchers with assistance in all aspects of computational and data-intensive research.

The inaugural CADRE spring conference brings together a consortium of regional researchers and leaders interested in the advancement of the following: high performance computing, high speed networks, data analysis and visualization, creating and implementing data management plans, applying best practices for organizing data, and storing, archiving and sharing data once a project is completed. 

Researchers and aspiring researchers (students, faculty and staff) from all disciplines are welcome to attend. Registration is free. 

**If you'd like to present at the poster session (April 11) or submit a proposal for a breakout talk during the conference (April 12), please indicate your interest on the registration form and you will be contacted for more details.
