The Complex Interactive Networks/Systems Initiative (CIN/SI) is a 5-year, $30 million effort developed with the goal of developing new tools and techniques that will enable large national infrastructures to self-heal in response to threats, material failures, and other destabilizers. This effort focuses on the modeling of enterprises at the appropriate level of complexity in critical infrastructure systems.

Funding Information:
CIN/SI is cofunded by EPRI and DOD through the GICUR program. Within DOD, I thank Delores Etter, deputy under secretary of defense, and Robert Trew, director of research, funding the DOD part of this GICUR program in the Office of the Director, Defense Research and Engineering. Within the U.S. Army Research Office (ARO), I thank CIN/SI manager Robert Launer, ARO director Jim Chang, Richard Smith, and Mitra Dutta, as well as Robert Singleton, formerly of ARO. Several colleagues formerly with DOD were involved in the initiative’s planning stages, including Arthur Diness, Laura S. Rea, George Sin-gley, and James Garcia. During the formative stages of the initiative, Anita Jones of the University of Virginia was director of Defense Research and Engineering. Within EPRI, Gail Kendall, Martin Wild-berger, Revis James, Ram Adapa, Aty Edris, Paul Grant, Hung-po Chao, Richard Lordan, Dejan Sobajic, Peter Hirsch, Steve Lee, Steve Gehl, John Stringer, and many others provided technical input and other assistance. I am also grateful for the contributions of the 108 faculty members, as well as dozens of other researchers and students in CIN/SI-funded universities.
