1 How will TG support users of DataNet and other NSF CI programs? Sergiu Sanielevici TG QM 9/18/2008 New Orleans
2 The Issue NSF has CI initiatives other than Teragrid: DataNetDataNet: the two first round awards are expected soon; iPlantiPlant, http://www.iplantcollaborative.org/ is completing its community input gathering process and will define its Grand Challenges and CI tooling process. http://www.iplantcollaborative.org/ We know that DataNet and iPlant users will/should also want/need to use TG resources. Their requirements are generally data-centric and likely to differ from those of our “traditional” HPC users. John Cobb will illustrate by giving us a sense of one DataNet proposal.
3 Proposed Solution By analogy to our process to understand how to best support PetaApps, SDCI and STCI awardees, in collaboration with the Blue Waters project This began with the 12/07 workshop in Tempe, AZ that brought together awardees and applicants for these grants, TG and BW staff. Led to community building, including non-TG people joining our XSWG; a follow-on workshop at TG08; and another workshop planned for Q1’09. Similarly, start by organizing a brainstorming summit with users and providers of DataNet and iPlant?
4 Join iPlant Activities Already Planned? SC’08 BOF Wednesday 11/19 at 5:30 pm CI Meeting at Biosphere-2 first week of January 2009 Dan Stanzione (ASU) requests TG representatives to participate, suggests designation of a TG POC for collaboration with iPlant, and offers to be our POC and Champion in iPlant. He has volunteered to be on the organizing committee for a TG-iPlant- DataNet brainstorming summit.
5 Organizing the Brainstorming Summit Who? Favorable reactions from Alex Szalay (JHU - DN community), Tim Nyerges (UW - DN community) in addition to Dan Stanzione (iPlant) Of course we also expect John Cobb to play a prominent role (DN community) Can’t do it without Scott Lathrop Dan Katz as TG Science Director Request assisance from NSF program officers?
6 Organizing the Brainstorming Summit (cont’d) When? March or April 2009? Where?
