Research Computing and Data Management Workshop
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), NYSERNet, Globus, and EPOC (Texas Advanced Computing Center and ESnet) are hosting the Modern Cyberinfrastructure for Research Data Management workshop at RPI in Troy, NY on February 27-28, 2024. This in-person workshop at RPI is intended for researchers who want to leverage advanced infrastructure for data management and computing, and for research computing professionals who want to realize the benefits of deploying a next-gen cyberinfrastructure to support data-intensive science.
Researchers and IT staff will learn how to manage and share large datasets, how to access and leverage remote compute and storage resources, and automate data management tasks. Systems administrators and Research Software Engineers will learn about the Science DMZ architecture, perfSONAR network measurement, and other affiliated R&E best common practices to operate modern research and education networks.
This workshop will be particularly useful to the following groups:
- Researchers, research computing administrators and technical staff
- Campus enterprise storage infrastructure managers
- Core facility (NGS, cryoEM, fMRI, etc.) IT staff
- Developers or Research Software Engineers who are building custom research applications
By the end of the event attendees will have a better understanding and knowledge of tools that can mitigate data management obstacles, the requirements for supporting scientific use of the network, and architectural strategies that can simplify these interactions.
