Print Friendly, PDF & Email

XSEDE seeks nominations for individuals to serve on the XSEDE Advisory Board (XAB).

The XAB aims to ensure that XSEDE is designed to impact a broad range of disciplines, enable both research and education, have broader impacts to society, and have a user community that is diverse (gender, ethnic background, etc.). The XAB includes representation from all types of colleges and universities, advises in the annual planning process, reviews the annual plans, and recommends strategic directions. While primarily strategic, the XAB may make tactical recommendations that help XSEDE.

The XAB consists of five scientific leaders from different communities who use XSEDE along with the chair of the XSEDE User Advisory Committee (UAC) and three representatives from the XSEDE Service Provider Forum (SPF). These members are complemented by an additional five senior members of the broader community. Between two and four new members will be selected and will be requested to serve for the remainder of the XSEDE 2.0 project (August 2021).

All members of the community are eligible to serve on the XAB. Individuals can nominate themselves or nominate another person as a potential XAB member. A nomination may be submitted during the nomination period to the XSEDE project which includes a statement of interest in the individual to be a nominee for XAB membership.

XAB obligations include:

  • Ensuring that the mission and vision of XSEDE are met and evolve as appropriate.
  • Attending at least 4 of the 6 annual meetings (5 teleconference + 1 in-person), with the in-person meeting in April being strongly encouraged.
  • Conducting an annual review and providing feedback regarding the project’s operational plan for the upcoming project year.
  • Providing insight and input regarding strategic and operational topics.

Nominations are due June 14, 2019.
