CINO October Update
Thank you to all speakers and participants for a successful Research Track at TechEx, where we had an exciting line up on a wide range of topics like Smart Campus and IoT, End-to-End Trust and Security for IoT and Trust, Identity, Privacy, Protection, Safety & Security (TIPPSS), Globus, Cyberinfrastructure, and CloudLab. We also kicked off an NSF for Cybersecurity Transition to Practice Acceleration EAGER project. If you were unable to attend TechEx, presentations from the Research Track are posted on the Internet2 website and CINO related presentations are also posted on the CINO Wiki. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to should you have any questions or want to learn more.
John Moore, AVP of Network Services, and Florence Hudson, Chief Innovation Officer, were invited to the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC) meeting in Alexandria, VA, on September 15 to join a panel with CASC, Advanced CyberInfrastructure-Research and Education Facilitators (ACI-REF), the Computing Research Association (CRA), and EDUCAUSE to discuss how we can all work together to better support our mutual members. We agreed to increase cross-organizational collaboration in technical, research support, and women in high performance computing (HPC) efforts.
NASA Cross-Industry Innovation Summit
Florence Hudson presented at the NASA Cross-Industry Innovation Summit held Sept 19-21 at Johnson Space Center (JSC) regarding "How to Overcome Barriers to Innovation". Hosted by the Chief Innovation Officer and Chief Technology Officer at NASA JSC, this summit brought together innovators from industry, academia, and government including Google, L'Oréal, Samsung, Toyota, Ford, General Electric, MD Anderson, Intel, CalTech, DreamIt and more to share best practices in innovation and consider the innovations needed to meet NASA's missions beyond low earth orbit (LEO) including traveling to Mars and returning to earth.
Florence Hudson was a moderator and on the organizing committee for the Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub (BDHub) "Enabling seamless data sharing in industry and academia" workshop held at Drexel University on Sept 29 and 30. This workshop brought together the leaders from the four NSF funded BDHubs along with industry (e.g., Amazon, Oracle, GE) and academia (e.g., Columbia, MIT, Brown, Drexel, Penn State, UNC, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, UCBerkeley) to discuss how to address the cultural, policy, and technical challenges in cross-organizational data sharing to accelerate scientific discovery and value in such areas as smart grid research and development, genomics, health and life sciences.
