The Iowa Informatics Initiative (UI3) fosters multi- and interdisciplinary research collaborations. On this page, you will find links to activities for students, faculty and staff who wish to employ advanced computational and data resources in their research.

The best place to find scheduled activities is the UI "Campus Events: Informatics" calendar. 

Computational Psychiatry

This community of practice is led by UI Associate Professor of Psychiatry Jake Michaelson. The CoP met for the first time in October, 2017. Their monthly meetings draw between 20-30 attendees, including students, staff and research faculty. Instead of having a set agenda, Michaelson hopes this group will foster collaborations that will grow, organically, in the future. The first annual computational psychiatry symposium was held April, 2018, and the second is planned for April 24, 2019

Informatics Days

This UI3 flagship event showcases ongoing data-intensive research from across campus. Participants will enjoy invited talks by guest speakers from within and outside UI, a poster session and co-located activities hosted by UI3 Affiliates across campus. For a summary of the 2019 UI3 Symposium that had an artificial intelligence theme, visit this link. For future symposia, watch the UI "Campus Events: Informatics" calendar. 

Please email UI3 at if you have questions about these events, or if you have suggestions for additional UI3 communities of practice.
