A community cyberinfrastructure would enable a new era of multidisciplinary research and collaboration in science and engineering. With such an infrastructure, researchers could share knowledge and results along with computing cycles, storage, and bandwidth. A generic, transparent cyberinfrastructure would also foster more meaningful analyses of data and visualization, modeling, and simulation of real-world phenomena.
