PEARC20 has ended
Welcome to PEARC20!
PEARC20’s theme is “Catch the Wave.” This year’s theme embodies the spirit of the community’s drive to stay on pace and in front of all the new waves in technology, analytics, and a globally connected and diverse workforce. We look forward to this year’s PEARC20 virtual meeting, where we can share scientific discovery and craft the future infrastructure.

The conference will be held in Pacific Time (PT) and the times listed below are in Pacific Time.

The connection information for all PEARC20 workshops, tutorials, plenaries, track presentations, BOFs, Posters, Visualization Showcase, and other affiliated events, are in the PEARC20 virtual conference platform, Brella. If you have issues joining Brella, please email pearcinfo@googlegroups.com.

Toward a Data Lifecycle Model for NSF Large Facilities

National Science Foundation large facilities conduct large-scale physical and natural science research. They include telescopes that survey the sky, gravitational wave detectors that look deep into our universe's past, and sensor-driven field sites that collect a range of biological and environmental data. The Cyberinfrastructure Center for Excellence (CICoE) pilot aims to develop a model for a center that facilitates community building, fosters knowledge sharing, and applies best practices in consulting with large facilities about their cyberinfrastructure. To accomplish this goal, the pilot began an in-depth study of how large facilities manage their data. Large facilities are diverse and highly complex, from the types of data they capture, to the types of equipment they use, to the types of data processing and analysis they conduct, to their policies on data sharing and use. Because of this complexity, the pilot needed to find a single lens through which it could frame its growing understanding of large facilities and identify areas where it could best serve large facilities. As a result of the pilot's research into large facilities, common themes emerged that enabled the creation of a data lifecycle model that successfully captures the data management practices of large facilities. This model has enabled the pilot to organize its thinking about large facilities, and frame its support and consultation efforts around the cyberinfrastructure used during research. This paper describes the model and discusses how it was applied to disaster recovery planning for a representative large facility-IceCube.
