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!

PEARC20 – Call for Participation: Deadline January 20th, 2020

Sharing on behalf of the PEARC20 Program Committee:

Deadlines:
All submissions: January 22, 2020 (no extensions!)
Author notifications: March 4, 2020
Camera-Ready: May 4, 2020

PEARC20 will explore the current Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing, including modeling, simulation, and data-intensive computing. PEARC20 will be in Portland, OR from July 26th-30th, 2020. This year’s theme, “Catch the Wave,” embodies the spirit of the community’s drive to stay in front of the new waves in technology, analytics, data, visualization, and a globally connected and diverse workforce. 

PEARC20 brings together community thought leaders, CI professionals, and students to learn, share ideas, and craft the infrastructure of the future. The PEARC20 student program will provide students with a range of opportunities to participate in both student activities and the full technical program so that they may share their research efforts and gain insights and inspiration from like-minded individuals at the conference.
