Purpose of the meeting is to brainstorm ideas for studies, not make decisions.
Training - since we started logging training attendance in the database, can we see their full lifecycle? Would also be nice to look at HPC monthly workshop series impact.
Look at institutional impact for monthly workshop series.
We have registrants and participants marked for all training since the start of XSEDE2.0 in the database
Kelly would like to know what the path is for trainees through XSEDE.
Students - is it possible to track the students and what does their path look like? where did they go - industry, academia, back into XSEDE as a PI?
Populations - any of the students that we have in a program EMPOWER, IHPCSS, ACSC, student champions,
John wants to check what the time constraints on studies should be from NSF's perspective.
Graduate students on XSEDE accounts, what do they go on to do. Include undergraduates and postdocs.
NSF Graduate fellows can get startup allocations as PIs.
ECSS - do people come in with funding or without and does that funding profile change and publication list change after receiving ECSS support
Do we know how students in one group moves to another and introduces in HPC? Social network analysis
Sometimes ECSS staff will connect research groups that didn't know about each other who go on to collaborate together.
BP - with aforementioned studies, would be good to disaggregate by MSIs, underrepresented groups, etc.
Themes - Are they really in the ecosystem? Are they included?
Persistent campuses - UPRM, Morgan State, UTEP, Cal State LA, Navajo Technical.
XCI - Follow what happens on campuses after XCI installs a cluster stack. Campuses - Bentley University and Southern Illinois University (might have an institutional story - talk to VCR).
Program Office - to what extent has the "Discover More" been effective? How has this changed awareness and perceptions? Longitudinally it would be interesting to look back and compare to previous strategies and campaigns.
Campus Champion Fellows - over time how has the program impacted their career.
Strategic Plan, metics, KPIs - institutional change. Rudy and Barry would be a good informant.
