Do you help researchers using IT tools to further their research goals?
Are you involved in research computing and/or data science training?
Do you consult with researchers on more effectively doing their research with advanced computing resources?
Compute with data?
The Researcher-Facing Track of the People Network brings together people from research computing groups, libraries, research institutes, and other organizations who support researchers in every phase of the research lifecycle. Many of us are also Data- & Systems-Facing, but this track is a community-led opportunity to discuss the practices, perspectives, and experiences of facilitation from any perspective.
- Research computing facilitation
- Outreach to all disciplines, esp. those under-represented, to aid with research computing resources
- Education and training
- The art and practice of facilitation
- Increasing communications, collaborations, and team-building
- Research computing UX and user-facing tech
- And more, as determined by our members!
We connect via monthly calls and an email list. We also invite you to review and contribute to the Leading Practices of Facilitation!
The Researcher-Facing Track is supported by the team efforts of two Co-Coordinators and a Steering Committee. Send questions or comments, feedback, call topic ideas, etc., to the coordinators at email@example.com.
Join Us! Fill out our membership form to let us know who you are and what you’re interested in. We’ll add you to this email list and other Tracks that you indicate.
Monthly calls are on the second Thursday of the month, 1p ET/ 12p CT/ 11a MT/ 10a PT/ 8a HT. Connection information and links to any materials are distributed via the Researcher-Facing email list.
Highlights from PEARC22
Thursday, August 11th at 1pm ET (12pm CT/11am MT/10am PT/7am HST).
Back by popular demand we bring you the Researcher-Facing PEARC recap for our August call! The advanced computing community reunited in Boston for PEARC22 and during this call we will share highlights, explore what we learned, and discover some nuggets that you may have missed! If you were not able to attend the conference, this will be a great opportunity to get caught up. Please join to contribute your favorite PEARC22 moments. Drawing from what we learned at Boston, we will also dialogue around new topics for the R-F track in the coming year.
In addition, please take a moment to vote on these potential R-F call topics! Thanks for your input.
