3. XRAC Reviewer Manual (David Hart

Previously:

As part of RAS efforts to increase recruiting for the XRAC, Ken and I compiled the attached "Reviewer Manual" to provide XRAC members with some common baseline information.

 Most notably, this document includes a Charter for the XRAC and the official XRAC COI policy—These sections have been updated for XSEDE from prior approved versions that I found dating back to TeraGrid. If there are more recent XSEDE-approved versions, we can replace those sections, if someone can send me those docs.

 So, while comments are welcome throughout, I think protocol dictates that the SMT should give formal approval to the Charter and COI policy.

7. Website Showing "Scientific Value of XSEDE"  (John Towns

Previously:

  • Topic of discussion is based on comments to John summarized as, "XSEDE website does not relate the scientific value of XSEDE."

Discussion:

  • (4/20) John - casual conversation about website doesn't really relate the scienctific value of XSEDE...is that what our website should be relaying? Someone likely from NSF has stated this, are we projecting the right message?
    • Kelly - would that appear to be novel or innovative? There's a reason it has the current message.
    • Kristin - could they have been referencing the portal? There's an opportunity to tell a story on the Portal
    • Value vs. Impact
    • ACTION John review NSF Review Introduction slides
  • Kelly - mid-year review revealed that we kinda suck at taking credit for our work. Historically, we've been careful to not, and the latest review suggested we toot our horn more. Suggest using an infographic to share some data on the front page of the web and on John's slides
  • Kristin - value of XSEDE and how a user walks through the program vs. an SP illustrations and animations
  • Kelly - would be good to have a broader discussion about what we want to achieve on the front page
