October Line-Up of People Network & RCD Community Calls

Greetings to all members of the Campus Research Computing Consortium (CaRCC) People Network! 

Before you mark your calendars (and usher in October), we’d like to remind everyone that today, 9/30, the RCD Workforce Survey will close. Please take this important survey if you haven’t already, and please pass along to your colleagues — a wide range of research-supporting positions are among those whom we’d like to hear from. See the RCD Workforce Survey webpage to start or for more information.

Now, mark your calendars for these upcoming People Network Calls (Zoom details at the end). For handy calendar entries, please try the CaRCC Events Calendar. We’d also like to highlight other calls from our RCD Ecosystem partners and collaborators, as these events touch many, if not all, in our community.

Capabilities Model Data Submission Deadline Extended to Sept 27, 2020!

Thanks to all the attendees and participants in the Capabilities Model activities at PEARC this year!

Following the CaRCC Town Hall, the Caps Model paper presentation, and the full-day Capabilities Model workshop, we had an overwhelming number of new downloads for the tool. Because of this and the feedback from those institutions already working through the Model, we are extending the data submission deadline to September 27, 2020. We hope the extra time will allow everyone to complete the Model and meet the 2020 community data submission deadline.
