"The Role of Data Sharing and Distributed Storage in Research - Visions for the Future" webinar will be Thursday, April 29th, 2021 – 9 am Pacific Time/4 pm UTC. Register here.
The panel moderator is Christine Kirkpatrick of SDSC. Panelists are Ryan Abernathey of Columbia University, Ian Foster of the University of Chicago, Ed Lazowska of the University of Washington, and Alex Szalay of Johns Hopkins University.
Science in the US is undergoing a significant change. Cyberinfrastructure or eInfrastructures tended to be funded for small projects for a single PI or very large science ventures (CERN LHC, NEON, NASA). What is emerging are medium-scale projects involving several universities and institutions. What architectures and capabilities are or will be needed by such projects and what effect will this have on the overall research computing ecosystem? Tune in to hear from prominent, visionary researchers on their perspective. Short talks will be followed by a moderated discussion.
