Globus co-founder Ian Foster will be speaking on "Scaling the PRP Software Infrastructure to the NRP" at the First National Research Platform (NRP) workshop, held at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana on August 7 & 8, 2017. Foster is the Arthur Holly Compton Distinguished Service Professor for the Department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago, as well as Distinguished Fellow and Senior Scientist, MCS Division, Argonne National Lab.
The purpose of the NRP workshop is to bring together representatives from interested institutions to discuss implementation strategies for deployment of interoperable Science DMZs at a national scale. The viewpoints of administrators, campus IT managers, ESnet, CENIC, Internet2, XSEDE, and the National Science Foundation will be presented. Sessions of the NRP workshop will also be devoted to science-driver application researchers, describing their needs for high-speed data transfer, including their successes and frustrations. Discussions will focus on requirements from the domain scientists and the networking architecture, policies, tools and security necessary to deploy a 200-institution National Research Platform. All participants will be encouraged to ask questions and share their thoughts on the topics under discussion.
