Regional Cyberinfrastructure Support for Bridging and Research Engagement

Time 10/03/11 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

During the Spring 2011 Member Meeting we held a session discussing the process through which the Great Plains Network made broad support for regional cyberinfrastructure a strategic priority, and how more generally RONs provide a base for developing CI support organizations. Based on the positive response to that session we propose a follow-up discussion in which several regional CI groups associated with their RONs will compare organizational models and operational details. In the past, much of the focus on expanding cyberinfrastructure abilities and capabilities has been at the campus and national levels. Lately, there has been a trend for existing regional organizations (e.g., the Great Plains Network, SURA) to extend support to the development of regional cyberinfrastructure as a strategic priority. This panel focuses on the role of these intermediate-level organizations -- RONs, state and other regional organizations -- in advancing priorities at the campus and national levels. Participants include representatives from the Great Plains Network, SURA, RENCI as well as campus representatives who will discuss organizational models and operational details.
