A New CASCI Logo and Revamping the Website

I am pleased to announce that, with the effort of our Junior Fellow Marina Cascaes (thank you!) and the help of other fellows, we have a brand new logo for CASCI. We also have a little favicon next to the browser tap! 😀

We are also trying to update the contents of the website, so feel free to send your research topics with a brief description to Myeong (myeong at umd.edu) so that we can maintain the website up-to-date.

Any comments about the design of the website are welcomed.
