Welcome to CaRCC

CaRCC – the Campus Research Computing Consortium – is an organization of dedicated professionals developing, advocating for, and advancing campus research computing and data* and associated professions. Current focus areas include building community among research computing and data professionals (see the People Network), connecting the broader research computing and data ecosystem, professionalization and workforce development, and defining stakeholders and shared value propositions for the community at a time of accelerating change.

Emerging Centers track seeks Steering Committee members

The Emerging Centers track of the CaRCC People Network is seeking individuals who could meet monthly to help the co-coordinators, Jane Combs and Rich Knepper, identify topics, coordinate with speakers, and expand our reach to more institutions.

Do you have a couple of extra hours in your month to give back to your RCD community, build your professional network, strengthen your NSF Biosketch Synergistic Activities section, and have some fun with new colleagues?

If you are interested in becoming a founding member of the Emerging Centers track Steering Committee, please contact us at combsje@uc.edu, Rich.Knepper@cornell.edu or ec-coordinators@carcc.org 

Note: you do not need to be a current member of the Emerging Centers track community. We are hoping to assemble a diverse group of representatives from small and large centers/institutions, newly established centers, institutions without centers, and highly established centers. All ideas (and people!) are welcome.

Join the EPSCoR CI Working Group exploring CI/RCD access for emerging and under-funded institutions!

Greetings, CaRCC members, from all of us in the newly formed EPSCoR CI Working Group (WG)!  Our work centers around recognition that increased access to cyberinfrastructure (CI) and associated best practices is the next challenge for emerging and under-resourced institutions.

The National Science Foundation recently funded an effort (award #2033483) designed to boost awareness, communication, and partnerships using CaRCC-driven assessment and planning tools. Led by the University of Hawai’i, in collaboration with institutional partners from Alaska, Mississippi, Montana, and Nevada, the project advocates for broad use of the Research Computing and Data Capabilities Model (RCD CM) assessment tool across the nation’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) jurisdictions and other emerging or under-resourced institutions (interested? Contact us). 

Assessment data will be used by participating institutions in training efforts centered on CI strategic planning and partnership development.  Assessment and training activities will culminate in a workshop to be held in conjunction with the NSF EPSCoR National Conference in Portland, Maine, May 22–25, 2022.  An open access report, publication and related outreach activities will be made available to share findings and planning and partnership initiatives and opportunities. Check back on the working group site to keep up with our work.
