Campus Research Computing Consortium (CaRCC) Futures & Sustainability Town Hall
TimeWednesday, July 314pm - 5pm
DescriptionAll are welcome! The Campus Research Computing Consortium (CaRCC) invites all to discuss and provide feedback on the CaRCC roadmap, and in particular to provide the community’s initial conceptualization for possible models of sustainability and collaboration for the future of CaRCC and related or alternative communities as we move to support, advocate for, and enhance research computing and data, research IT, or research cyberinfrastructure on our campuses, in our regions and in the nation. This initial discussion will help frame a potential workshop on sustainability in the Fall of 2019.
CaRCC - the Campus Research Computing Consortium - is an organization of dedicated professionals developing, advocating for, and advancing campus research computing and data and associated professions.
Through various working groups and based on community input via the 2017 stakeholder survey, members of the CaRCC community have developed a robust structure to connect professionals in the field, referred to as the People Network with tracks for researcher-facing, system-facing, and data-facing professionals; a research computing and data job families guide; a document articulating the value propositions for campus research computing; brought together representatives from many communities of CI professionals in an ecosystem awareness workshop; and in collaboration with Internet2 and EDUCAUSE are developing a campus research IT maturity model.
CaRCC’s origins are in the NSF award OAC-1620695 “RCN: Advancing Research and Education through a national network of campus research computing infrastructures - The CaRC Consortium.”
For this meeting we welcome all who are interested in helping formulate future directions of CaRCC-facilitated (or potentially other community’s-facilitated) activities to serve the broader campus research computing community and ways to sustain those activities beyond the current NSF grant funding.
Following this discussion at PEARC19, interested participants will be encouraged to join in further activities to refine and implement the ideas generated. If you are interested in participating in this but cannot make the meeting, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
