Marcela: conferences. Reword the acknowledgment of ECSS/NIP? Paul: offer NIP as a prize. Frame it as a competition? Alan: Reacting to Paul's idea of a contest, we (before I was in XSEDE) offered a million CPU hours for humanities projects as a "competition" that gave us excuse to do email blasts, press releases, etc. Here is one link to what we were doing: https://cs.illinois.edu/news/million-cpu-hours-available-ncsa . Here is another link - after the initial 1 million we did 2 million. Gave us an excuse for another email and press blast: https://www.nics.tennessee.edu/I-CHASS_announcement (but note the link to the full story no longer works). Share idea with ecss-mgmt and ER. Better promote the ECSS symposium site! Sudhakar: add a blurb about ECSS/NIP to more XSEDE communications. E.g about workshops, new user training, allocations training... Lars: mention it when we can.
