Electrical and Physical Characterization of Nano- and Non-Linear Devices for Future Computing

Rutgers University's Office of Advanced Research Computing (OARC) and Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2) are pleased to collaborate as one of the nation's few host sites for the limited-seat National Strategic Computing Initiative webinar series by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Please join us on Friday, June 9th from 1:00 - 3:00 pm as we present the NSCI WEBINAR Series Event "XSEDE's Extended Collaborative Support Services - Boosting User Productivity " with speaker, Nancy Wilkin-Diehr and Ralph Roskies. (Please note, our events have moved to Room 601 in the CoRE Building and are limited-access simulcast.)

About the presentation:" “Using advanced computational resources to push the scientific frontiers is not simply a matter of providing cycles and/or storage.  There needs to be a path forward for both the advanced and the more novice user.  In this talk we illustrate how the NSF’s XSEDE program provides this support via its Extended Collaborative Support Services (ECSS) which enables researchers throughout the nation to more effectively use NSF’s advanced computing resources. ECSS reaches out to communities that have not traditionally been users of advanced computing, and provides  interfaces that allow them to access high end resources without having to become programmers but without neglecting support for more advanced practitioners.  We will provide several examples of notable successes on both fronts. " (Nancy Wilkins-Diehr and Ralph Roskies)
