ACCESS wouldn’t be able to operate without the Resource Providers (RP) sharing their time, resources and expertise. The diverse community of RPs within the ACCESS portfolio is made up of centers funded by the National Science Foundation, and they continue to provide much-needed resources that support the nation’s research community. The Resource Provider Forum works to facilitate the ecosystem of cyberinfrastructure resources, making it easier for researchers to connect to the variety of resources they may need to complete their work.
The RP forum specifically provides an open forum for the discussion of topics of interest to the RP community as well as a formal communication channel between the RP Forum members and the ACCESS project.
The RP forum recently elected its first chair. After a robust nomination process, voters chose Eva Siegmann from Stony Brook University as their new RP Forum Chair. Siegmann is the lead research scientist of the Ookami project, the associate director Arm HPC user group, and a reviewer and panelist for NSF. She has over a decade of experience in scientific computing.
I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as the chair of the resource provider forum and am excited to work with our talented and passionate members to advance the mission of ACCESS.Eva Siegmann, RP Forum Chair, ACCESS
