|ECSS to look into helping scientists with proper benchmarking for XRAC proposals - QMA-335Getting issue details... STATUS||Robert Sinkovits, Philip Blood|
|ECSS/XCI to coordinate efforts to manage requests that may be better suited for the other group. - QMA-336Getting issue details... STATUS||Robert Sinkovits, Philip Blood|
Notes/ Discussion items:
- If you identify a respected leader in a community/domain, they will talk to that community about how you can help their community.
- Even with ECSS staff going to more conferences, we need to have targeted attendance. Just generally attending conferences won't get that done. But identify ambassadors/leaders and you might not need to go to the communities, but use them as the bridge.
- If invited to a conference, then yes go, but don't think going to conferences will do everything.
- In CEE, they look at conferences going on and have an on-going conversation about whether or not someone should be attending said conference.
- In CEE, they picked a profile of conferences to attend. Instead of picking domain specific conferences, find conferences that may be multidisciplinary, but fit with what ECSS wants to target
- When attending a conference, be sure to reach out to ECSS staff to see if they have connections to someone at that conference and leverage that relationship
- After going through the XRAC review, and seeing that the barriers to entry need to be lower, there were a lot of proposals that were rejected where they just don't know how to do a proper performance analysis.
- Perhaps using ECSS to help them make a good proposal with proper benchmarking might make utilization of ECSS higher.
- Expanding consulting would be interesting. It would be interesting to have a conversation with XCI re: requests from users that aren't clear to XCI whether or not it's something for their area or if ECSS should handle it. A more active coordination between the two groups may bear fruit.
