XSEDE Quarterly Meeting Action Items and Decision Recording


  • Attendees not familiar with Zoom, please contact Ron Payne to setup a applications setup and testing, prior to the quarterly meeting.
  • You may only connect with an external microphone (puck, headset, microphone and speaker combo, earbuds etc.). Internal laptop microphones are discouraged, as they cause echo during calls and at times disable the call entirely. You may be asked to leave the web version if you join via an internal microphone; you may instead join via a telephone or cell phone. Please make arrangements to ensure you have an external microphone.
  • Contact Ron Payne or Leslie Froeschl with questions.
  • Please submit any requested agenda items via the XSEDE Quarterly Topic Request form


Date:  Tuesday, September 1 & Wednesday, September 2 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm CT
