Contact: Henry Neeman (

There's NO PREREQUISITE other than an interest in helping researchers with their computing-intensive/data-intensive research.

(Participation in any previous Virtual Residency workshop is NOT REQUIRED.)

Please feel free to forward this to anyone who may be interested and appropriate.


  • Does your institution have lots of researchers and educators who want to use advanced computing, but need some help learning how?
  • You or someone at your institution can learn to be more effective at helping researchers and educators use research computing!

This is a great way to get better at a career in helping researchers use research computing. It's also a great way to meet a community of fellow research computing facilitators.

The Virtual Residency Program has already served: 1120 people from 417 institutions in all 50 US states and 4 US territories plus 13 other countries on 5 continents.

You *DON'T* have to participated in ANY past Virtual Residency event (including this year's workshop planning calls), NOR in Campus Champions NOR Campus Research Computing Consortium (CaRCC) efforts, in order to participate in the 2022 Virtual Residency workshop -- though of course everyone in those groups are encouraged to apply!
