This month, the Department of Energy’s ESnet co-located its bi-annual Site Coordinators Committee (ESCC) meeting with The Quilt’s Fall Meeting, as well as the National Science Foundation’s (NSF’s) Campus CyberInfrastructure and Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure P.I. Workshops at the Marriott Downtown in Philadelphia, Penn. Holding all four meetings in one location allowed engineers and researchers to have fruitful discussions that highlight areas of science and related cyberinfrastructure that are important to the combined communities.
The co-located agenda included panel discussions on topics such as:
- “National Cybersecurity,” facilitated by Berkeley Lab’s Sean Peisert. ESnet’s Michael Sinatra was a panelist.
- “Science Engagement – Bridging the Gaps,” facilitated by ESnet’s Lauren Rotman. Berkeley Lab’s Craig Tull was a panelist.
- “Climate Science Infrastructure Support,” facilitated by Colorado State University’s Christos Papadopoulos. Travis O’Brian from Berkeley Lab’s Earth Sciences Area was a panelist.
The meeting was held October 18-21, 2016.
