Cyberinfrastructure Campus Bridging With Campus Champions

Time 11/02/10 12:00PM-01:00PM

Session Abstract

Our vision is that faculty, IT professionals, and students on every campus should be able to easily provide and/or utilize cyberinfrastructure (CI) resources available locally, regionally, nationally and internationally as needed to advance science and engineering research and education. We propose to leverage the successful Open Science Grid (OSG) Campus Grid and Sites and the TeraGrid Campus Champions to form Cyberinfrastructure Campus Champions (CI-CC) working together towards the vision. The activity is proposed within the current framework of OSG and TeraGrid projects as a way to make progress in collaboration in this important aspect of bridging between campus cyberinfrastructure and national cyberinfrastructure. Additionally, we propose to collaborate with all other interested CI providers (EDUCAUSE, Internet2, DOE, DOD, etc.) to ensure campus researchers, educators and students are well informed of the resources and opportunities available to them to utilize cyberinfrastructure, and to avoid duplication of effort and to promote cooperation among CI providers and campuses. There are three goals for the program:

1. Empowing the Campus Champions Virtual Organization.
2. Providing Solutions for Campus Bridging to CI Resources
3. Engaging New and Non-Traditional Campuses and Users.
