People Network Calls Through December 2019

Greetings to the CaRCC People Network and extended community!

So that everyone is aware of calls hosted by our tracks, we are sending out an announcement of all calls through the end of the year. (Also visible in the CaRCC Events Calendar.)

Data-Facing Track (first Tuesdays, 1pm ET)

Data Science Support Beyond Data Science, discussion facilitated by Wei Yin (Columbia) and Stephanie Labou (UC San Diego)

Tuesday, December 3rd 1p ET/ 12p CT/ 11a MT/ 10a PT

Data librarians may become “data science” librarians by necessity, if they are not already serving in this role. In this call, we will provide an overview of the particulars of two libraries’ data science support beyond data science (e.g., across departments, collaborating with IT, etc.)  and have an open discussion of how other groups are dealing with similar support needs.

JANUARY 7 – Identify/prioritize topics for the coming year!

Researcher-Facing Track (second Thursdays, 1pm ET)

Announcing the Emerging Centers track!

The Emerging Centers track of the CaRCC People Network will bring together members of research computing departments/ aspiring centers that are just getting started at their institutions, research computing groups at smaller institutions, and folks who are new to the research computing community.  The Emerging Centers track of CaRCC will discuss topics such as funding models, engaging with faculty and investigators, working with campus leadership, and developing research computing/data services (compute, storage, networks, training, applications and people) on campuses. 

The first Emerging Centers call will take place September 18 at 12pm ET to introduce the initial members to each other and identify a list of topics for future discussion. In order to join the Emerging Centers track (via email list), fill out the Emerging Centers joining form, which will also collect information about your interest in potential discussion topics.  For questions or details, contact track coordinators Jane Combs (combsje@ucmail.uc.edu) and Rich Knepper (rich.knepper@cornell.edu). 

The CaRCC (Campus Research Computing Consortium) People Network, aims “to foster, build and grow an inclusive community (termed the “People Network”) for campus CI, research computing and data professionals.” If you would like to join other People Network tracks, too, which includes Data-facing, Researcher-facing, Systems-facing, and other tracks, please fill in the form at http://bit.ly/join_carcc_people_network.

Bart and Yoh will be talking about the different stages of the research life cycle, mapping the stages to different groups at their institutions, and helping us do a similar exercise for our own institutions.  We’ll be discussing how support for research data comes in at multiple stages in the research life cycle and which organizations at our institutions provide that support.
