As 2013 draws to a close, it is the perfect time to reflect on the highlights of what we, as a community, have achieved this year. Perhaps most important among these accomplishments is that community participation continues to grow. To date, we have welcomed 53 new members since January.
Community participation and engagement have also deepened; we have very engaged board and advisory group members; had record attendance at the Annual Meeting; and see very positive growth in funding for, and use of, advanced new network and application capabilities for large-scale team-science collaborations that have the power to make impacts far beyond academia.
