Session Abstract

The theme for this year’s Executive Track is “Progress Towards Coherent National Platforms for Research and Scholarship." Scientific research, and all forms of scholarship now, are heavily driven by data and the technologies used to create, move, process, store, secure and manage access to it. Researchers and scholars have become adept at using or putting together the functional pieces, but they would benefit greatly from “platforms” that assemble the [assumed interoperable] parts for them and hide the technical complexities behind easy-to-use interfaces.

The Executive Track program features important updates from the global community (in lighting talk format) on the status of key projects “in flight” that are contributing toward these platforms, spanning advanced networking, identity and access management, security and the emerging national and global collaborations that support this complex cyberinfrastructure landscape. We will devote time to discussion of the overall landscape and direction these are taking, and how they may fit into “coherent platforms” for supporting research needs.
