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.

PEARC20 Panel Submission: Towards a National Cyberinfrastructure Ecosystem from Campus to National Facilities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This panel will bring together cyberinfrastructure professionals from colleges and universities to discuss their approaches to meeting researchers' needs using both on-campus and external CI resources. Existing programs such as the XSEDE Campus Champions, the Linux Cluster Institute, and HPC University offer opportunities for personal development, and organizations like the Coalition of Campus Research Computing Centers (CaRCC) provide fora for staff and leadership of campus research computing centers. For smaller institutions, however, or those that have difficulties in providing research CI, there is little in the way of dedicated on-site expertise to give a hand up or overcome immediate gaps in knowledge blocking progress toward a strong campus CI support environment for researchers. The XSEDE CI Resource Integration (CRI) group provides services that enable the development of campus CI that is harmonized with XSEDE facilities and offerings. CRI also provides in-person and on-site targeted support for campus research CI staff to fill knowledge or skills gaps and to help research computing programs solve immediate, "show stopping" problems. In this panel, we will discuss lessons learned from the trenches about how to enable continuous growth and quality improvement in campus research computing capabilities, and what additional common issues and problems still need to be addressed to build campus CI that is properly integrated with regional and national facilities and services. These individual experiences from campuses are valuable for the broader community considering how to optimize choices about local investments in equipment and expertise while leveraging national resources like XSEDE, the Open Science Grid, and cloud services. Discussion will be guided by the XSEDE CRI team, and will seek to foster coordination among resource providers, exposing common issues in developing a stronger U.S. research CI ecosystem.
