ABOUT US

The Southern Partnership in Advanced Networking (SPAN) is a partnership between South Carolina State University, Clemson University, Georgia State University and the University of Georgia that is building a regional community of practitioners across the South that supports next-generation networking. The SPAN project, funded through NSF’s regional CC*IIE program, partners with colleges and universities to support the increasingly critical role that access to distributed data/computer-intensive infrastructure – both technical and human – is playing in research and education endeavors across a wide range of disciplines.

SPAN is offering a workshop specific to HBCUs to facilitate discussions on topics such as network design, network tools and performance, development of campus Cyberinfrastructure plans, best practices in supporting researchers, high-performance computing, and promoting familiarity with advanced computing resources at the regional and national level.

UPCOMING EVENT

The Advanced Research Computing on Campuses (ARCC) workshop is co-locating at PEARC17 this July in New Orleans with the aim to begin the process of more broadly integrating with the on-going PEARC annual conference. To minimize disruption and overlap with the standard program, the ARCC at PEARC will involve a full-day tutorial on Monday July 10, 2017 and then a single parallel session alongside the four other parallel sessions in the technical program on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 11-12, 2017 with shared plenaries, breaks, meals and other activities.

 

The tutorial titled “ARCC Tutorial: Enabling and Advancing Research Computing on Campuses” aims to provide a broad overview of research computing on campuses including evolving trends in cyberinfrastructure, computing, and people resources on campuses. This open tutorial is intended for those people charged with supporting their campuses research communities in the use of Cyberinfrastructure. This would include CIOs, research computing directors and managers, CI Engineers, research facilitators, Sponsored Research Office personnel, center directors, interested researchers interested in learning more about maintaining, advocating for, and enabling strong research computing resources and enhancing support on your campus. The tutorial will also cover establishing and operating Science DMZs and also preparation and submission of campus CI plans and CI related proposals.    https://www.pearc.org/program    

 

The parallel ARCC session on Tuesday and Wednesday will represent a series of selected lightening talks in four different areas. If you want to present a lightening talk or have a recommendation for a potential talk, please e-mail a short summary of the planned presentation idea and proposed speaker to the ARCC17 Chair Thomas Cheatham at the University of Utah (tec3@utah.edu) by May 15, 2017.

 

Tuesday 11-12:30: Cloud, containers and related topics.

Tuesday 1:30-3: Facilitation topics and lightening talks by Campus Champion Fellows.

Tuesday 4-5: Pending and open BoF on Facilitation.

 

Wednesday 11-12:30: IAM, security and related topics.

Wednesday 1:30-3: Advanced systems, technology, storage and network topics.

Wednesday 4-5: Pending and open BoF on the Campus Research Computing consortium (CaRC)
