 image001Dr. Larry Smarr, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, the founding Director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), UCSD. Professor Smarr is a widely-quoted authority on the future of information technology and telecommunications. He is a pioneer in prototyping a national information infrastructure to support academic research, governmental functions, and industrial competitiveness, and played a pivotal role in the development of the Internet and high-performance computing. Smarr created and led one of the first NSF-funded supercomputing center, and was an early advocate for the first national NSFnet backbone, which evolved into today’s Internet. The first Web browser–NCSA Mosaic, the predecessor of Netscape Navigator–originated at NCSA while he was Director. At Cal-(IT)², Smarr has authored an interdisciplinary approach to the institute’s goal of extending the reach of the current information infrastructure throughout the physical world to enable anytime/anywhere access.
