The Center for the Advanced Study of Communities and Information (CASCI) is a multidisciplinary research network, based at University of Maryland. CASCI exists to facilitate research and education that advances our understanding of the technology, information, and organization approaches needed to realize the potential of 21st century communities to support learning, facilitate innovation, transform science and scholarship, promote economic development, and enhance individual and civic well-being.

As of 2021, CASCI is currently inactive and will not be holding any events. If you have questions about CASCI or if you are interested in relaunching the event series (and you are currently a UMD faculty member), reach out to Jessica Vitak at
