Panel: National-Scale Research Computing and Beyond

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How might the international community of research computing users and stakeholders benefit from knowledge sharing among national- or international-scale research computing organizations and providers? It is common for large-scale investments in research computing systems, services and support to be guided and funded with government oversight and centralized planning. There are many commonalities, including stakeholder relations, outcomes reporting, long-range strategic planning, and governance. What trends exist currently, and how might information sharing and collaboration among resource providers be beneficial? Is there desire to form a partnership, or to build upon existing relationships? Participants in this panel will include personnel involved in US, Canadian, European, and other large-scope research computing jurisdictions.
