  • ECSS management has submitted the request for the training supplement to the XSEDE leadership. We should be able to get back to you soon on any requests you have submitted from that fund.
  •  ECSS management has also submitted a proposal to the XSEDE leadership to fund additional ECSS effort to help prepare (1) current ECSS PIs; (2) SPs; (3) Champions -  for the post-ECSS era. We'll see how that goes.
  • Please start working on quarterly activity updates and propose possible progress highlights. (The next XSEDE quarterly report is due to NSF in early November.)
  • And of course, quarterly and final reports for any/all ECSS projects you are working on.
