Abstract
Building on the fundamental tenet that a robust national research cyberinfrastructure ecosystem is essential to advancing computational and data-intensive research across science and engineering disciplines, principals of the newly announced ACCESS program will discuss how they will work to improve the agility, accessibility, usability, and coordination of the nation’s research cyberinfrastructure landscape. Panelists will also address the transition from the XSEDE environment, the many anticipated changes, and how members of the community will navigate these changes; what improvements in the accessibility of national cyberinfrastructure resources can be expected; and how integration with systems and research communities on campuses across the nation will be increased. Panelists will also discuss their near- and long-term vision for the future of research computing and how the ACCESS ecosystem will further advance discovery and innovation to ensure continued U.S. leadership in science and engineering.
