ACCESS Public Town Hall Webinar

About the series

The national research cyberinfrastructure (CI) ecosystem is essential to computational- and data-intensive research across all of 21st-century science and engineering (S&E), driven by rapid advances in a wide range of technologies; increasing volumes of highly heterogeneous data; and escalating demand by the research community. The CI ecosystem continues to grow and evolve in response to these opportunities.  

The Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) will conduct a Town Hall to promote awareness among S&E researcher communities about the new Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support (ACCESS) program. The ACCESS program builds upon, and will transition from, the high-performance computing successes of the XSEDE program, while also expanding the ecosystem with capabilities for new modes of research and further democratizing participation.

The OAC program officer and Principal Investigators will highlight how S&E researchers can benefit from ACCESS’ coordinated suite of services and communications. This webinar will:

  • provide an overview of how ACCESS advances OAC’s vision and blueprints for an agile, inclusive, scalable CI ecosystem;  
  • introduce how ACCESS function as a central avenue to novel services for researchers, while also maintaining production-quality reliability;
  • outline influential leadership roles to be filled by researchers;
  • highlight the simplified process to obtain allocations of advanced CI resources (e.g. compute, data, storage, cloud and or networking);
  • outline four levels of expanded user support services, from automated self-service to personalized match-making across expert networks;
  • describe step-by-step “Roadmaps” to increase systems integration and participation; and
  • forecast novel utilities for monitoring and measuring systems and applications performance.

Presentations will be followed by opportunity for an interactive Question-and-Answer session with OAC Program Officers and Principal Investigators.
