Calit2: The Path Forward Environmental Technical Working Group Environmental Technical Working Group Kick-Off September 25, 2009 Dr. Larry Smarr Director, California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology Harry E. Gruber Professor, Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering Jacobs School of Engineering, UCSD
Todays Meeting Agenda 10:00-10:30 Roundtable Introductions –Who Are You, What Do You Do, How Does it Relate to Environmental thrust. –Each person limited to 1 minutes! 10:30-11:00 Planning Process Overview –Overview of Strategic Planning Process, Desired Output, Timeline –Questions and Answers on Process 11:00-11:45Technical Brainstorming [Initial Discussion] –What are the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities for Calit2 in Env? –What are the application opportunities in this thrust in next 5-10 years? –What technologies are needed to realize the application opportunities? 11:45-12:00Leadership of Technical Working Group –Nominations/Volunteer for leadership of TWG –Decisions on leadership will be made after the meeting and communicated to the working group prior to the next meeting.
Calit2 Continues to Pursue Its Initial Mission: Envisioning How the Extension of Innovative Telecommunications and Information Technologies Throughout the Physical World will Transform Critical Applications Important to the California Economy and its Citizens Quality Of Life. Calit2 is a University of California Institutional Innovation Experiment on How to Invent a Persistent Collaborative Research and Education Environment that Provides Insight into How the UC, a Major Research University, Might Evolve in the Future. Calit2 Review Report: p.1
Calit2 Must Update Its Vision for the Next Decade and Answer the Presidents Call We need to do a better job of telling our story in Sacramento and beyond. I've made some 20 trips to the capital in the past year and will continue my advocacy. But frankly, I could use some help. --UC President Yudof
Calit2--A Systems Approach to the Future of the Internet and its Transformation of Our Society Calit2 Has Assembled a Complex Social Network of Over 350 UC San Diego & UC Irvine Faculty From Two Dozen Departments Working in Multidisciplinary Teams With Staff, Students, Industry, and the Community Integrating Technology Consumers and Producers Into Living Laboratories of the Ubiquitous Internet
Institutional Innovation Successes Persistent Collaborative Framework Birthing and Housing of Centers and Large Grants Development of Shared Facilities Living Laboratories We Will Continue This Approach of Decentralized Innovation
The Components on Which Calit2 Can Build the Next 5-10 Years
Principles for Developing the Path Forward Responsive to LARGE-SCALE SOCIETAL CHALLENGES in California and Beyond Articulates a Clear Five-Ten Year Vision of Significant Scientific or Technical Challenges Builds on Strength of Both Campuses and Expands as Needed to External Partners (Other Universities, National Laboratories, Etc) Engages Existing Centers, Large Grants, & Large Scale Calit2 Infrastructure Anchored in One Application Area, but Draws from The Institutes Other Seven Application and Enabling Technologies Creates At Scale Living Laboratory Prototype that Demonstrates the Feasibility of Addressing the CHALLENGE
Planning Activities All-Hands Meeting to Describe Planning Process, Level Set [Sept 8,2009] –Meeting took place on September 8, 2009 from 10:00-11:30am with faculty from UCSD and UCI linked together via VTC. –Meeting materials may be accessed at: –Username: calit2 (lowercase)Password: 2010 Technical Working Group Meetings [Sept 25-December 4, 2009] –Technical working groups will meet in from Sept-early Dec to provide technical input on future directions. –Goal is for working groups to meet 2-3 times. Reverse Town Hall Meeting [Week of December 7, 2009] –Volunteer leads of each technical working group will co-present the results of their working group discussions –Each group will be given 15 minutes to present, followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
Overview of Planning Activities Continued Freeze Input, Develop Final Draft of Document [Dec-early Jan 2010] –All input from technical working groups and community will be finalized by December 11, –A final draft of the document will be created by January 15, Review Cycle [January 2010] –Review by Calit2 Governing and Advisory Groups –Calit2 Divisional Councils at UCI and UCSD –Calit2 Executive Governing Board –Calit2 Advisory Board. Finalizing the Plan Forward [February 2010] –The document will be finalized and publicized on the web by March 1, 2010.

What Output Do We Want for the TWG? Technical White Paper of Calit2 Opportunities in Environment –Maximum of 10 pages, high level vision, major stakeholders, needed technologies, Calit2 unique efforts, gap analysis (what do we have, what do we need to realize vision). Executive Summary of Technical White Paper for Path Forward Document –Maximum of 3 pages, summarizes details of more technical oriented white paper. Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats, Gap Analysis –Maximum 2 page document that summarizes SWOT and Gap conversation. –SWOTs will be kept internal, not shared in public document.

Climate Change Will Pose Major Challenges to California in Water and Wildfires It is likely that the changes in climate that San Diego is experiencing due to the warming of the region will increase the frequency and intensity of fires even more, making the region more vulnerable to devastating fires like the ones seen in 2003 and California Applications Program (CAP) & The California Climate Change Center (CCCC) CAP/CCCC is directed from the Climate Research Division, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
