How to get involved

The current CaRCC community has at its center the “People Network“, a group  of volunteers (basically at present an non-exclusive e-mail list and a sub-committee that helps coordinate) helping to support and advocate for the community of communities supporting research computing and data, broadly defined. CaRCC also helps to facilitate a set of open working groups. Membership is currently open to Research Computing and Data and Cyberinfrastructure professionals, noting that at present the focus has been on supporting campuses and research.

Working Groups: To express interest in getting involved with the working groups, either e-mail the committee chairs or

The People-Network: The people-network is for all of the people who support campus-based research computing and data infrastructure and the use of that infrastructure by researchers.

CaRC Vision: The vision of the CaRC Consortium is to advance the frontiers of research at academic institutions by supporting on-campus awareness and facilitation services related to computation for researchers, including inter-institutional resource and knowledge sharing among research computing professionals, and continuous innovation in research computing capabilities.

CaRC Purpose:  The Consortium is committed to supporting the sustainability of campus efforts through professional and career development for the individuals (“Facilitators” and other professionals) who enable and collaborate with researchers to better utilize large-scale, advanced computing resources. The Consortium is further dedicated to extending and enhancing the reach and impact of campus and national research computing infrastructure on research conducted at the campus level (including multi-institution collaborations). The Consortium explores and develops effective strategies and best practices that campuses may use to empower their researchers to become more effective users of advanced research cyberinfrastructure (CI) at the campus, regional, national, and international levels.
