Supplementary Materials Oklahoma Cyberinfrastructur e Initiative 2008-13 OK Cyberinfrastructure Initiative All academic institutions in Oklahoma are eligible to sign up for free use of OUs and OSUs centrally-owned CI resources. Other kinds of institutions (government, non-governmental) are eligible to use, though not necessarily for free. Everyone can participate in our CI education initiative.

86 OCII Goals Reach institutions outside the mainstream of advanced computing. Serve every higher education institution in Oklahoma that has relevant curricula. Educate Oklahomans about advanced computing. Attract underrepresented populations and institution types into advanced computing. OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Sep 27 2017 87 OneOCII Strategy OneOCII doesnt exactly have a strategy; itd be more accurate to say we have an approach: Every CI project in the state is part of the larger whole. Each new project advances a subset of OneOCII. Not all parts of OneOCII advance at the same time. Everyone works together on everything. OSCER State of the Center Address

150 External Connectors Innovation Platform: OneNet has secured a 100G connection onto Internet2s Innovation Platform (IP). OSU has dedicated connectivity to connect to the IP at 100G. OU is deploying 2 x 10G with Layer-2 and Layer-3 transport services, from OU to OneNet, connecting directly into the same OneNet chassis as the IP. Under OFFN, researchers statewide will straightforwardly be able to access the IP via OU and OSU. DYNES: OU hosts a static DYNES site deployment. Primarily implemented as a dedicated path tool for OUHEPs SWT2 cluster to receive large datasets from LHCOne. Can easily be migrated to the 4PP Science DMZ. OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Sep 27 2017 151 External Connectors (contd) XSEDE: OUs already-funded plan to connect to the Innovation Platform can also facilitate connection to

XSEDEnet at no additional charge, by OneNet simply setting aside 10 Gbps of the 100 Gbps connection into the Innovation Platform (subject to OneNets and XSEDEs approval). PlanetLab provides an overlay services network that can be decomposed into tangible resource pools used for network experimentation. Both OU and OSU provide dedicated PlanetLab hardware resources.

There are no major weaknesses in the proposal and many strengths. The broader impacts are nicely defined in terms of the

idea of a residency program . A residency program and enhancement of undergraduate research are strong enhancements to the proposal. This is one of the better proposals regarding additional outreach via the budgeted virtual residency program. OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Sep 27 2017 162 ACI-REF Virtual Residency: Why? CI Facilitators have strong experience within their discipline (often non-CS). Most CI Facilitators and CI Engineers havent been faculty. Sometimes little or no research experience (especially for SDN-focused CI Engineers). Even if strong research background, typically little or no experience with research outside their own discipline. When we started the Virtual Residency in 2015, there were no local, regional or national programs to teach people how to be an ACI-REF. In the olden days, you could take your time learning how to do this -- but not anymore . OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Sep 27 2017 163

Lots of Interest Proposal Polled CC-NIE awardees, MRI CI awardees, Minority Serving Institutions. Interest expressed from 33 institutions in 23 states & territories expressed interest, including 3 MSIs and 19 institutions in 13 EPSCoR jurisdictions, and 7 non-PhD-granting institutions. Applications 2015: over 60 applicants from 49 institutions in over 30 states and territories. 2017: 90 applicants from 63 institutions in 34 US states plus 3 other countries (Canada, India, Nigeria). OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Sep 27 2017 164 Lots of Interest (contd) Participants: 128 total 2015: 50 total from 38 institutions in 26 states and territories (28 onsite and 22 offsite via videoconferencing), including:

21 institutions in 12 EPSCoR jurisdictions; 5 Minority Serving Institutions; 5 non-PhD-granting institutions. 2017: 99 total from 68 institutions in 33 states plus Canada and Nigeria (43 onsite, 56 offsite), including: 27 attendees from 20 institutions in 13 EPSCoR jurisdictions; 10 Minority Serving Institutions; 13 non-PhD-granting institutions. OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Sep 27 2017 165 What Did We Want to Teach? Teach how to work with researchers who are using CI. Teach how to contribute to, and ultimately to lead, grant proposals.

Some of them already knew how to do this, so their job was to help us help the rest. Science DMZ Track Teach how to talk to them. Teach how to help them. Teach how to manage a Science DMZ. Computational Science & Engineering Track Get some practice working with researchers. OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Sep 27 2017 166 What Werent We Trying to Do? On the Computational & Data-enabled Science & Engineering track, we WERENT trying to teach a lot of technical content. People can learn that from other sources. Instead, our goal was to teach them the PROFESSION of ACI-REF. To get them thinking about this, we had each do a 5-minute mini-project/talk on something they were going to do at

their home institution, based on what theyd gotten from the workshop. OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Sep 27 2017 167 What Was the Hidden Agenda? Our real goal was to prepare for an upcoming transition to: Some of the participants already knew how to do this. more need for this kind of skilled workforce, but fewer people who know how to do it, with no mechanism to prepare a sufficiently large cohort. But it took a very long time to learn on their own. To keep up with demand, the community needs us to streamline the process so that new ACI-REFs can become fully productive quickly. Todays ACI-REFs are tomorrows CI leaders. OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Sep 27 2017 168 ACI-REF Workshop Agenda 2015

Henry Neeman, PI Cyberinfrastructure Leadership Academy University of Oklahoma Norman, Oklahoma http://www.oscer.ou.edu/ [email protected] Senior Cyberinfrastructure leaders are retiring and taking their knowledge, experience and wisdom with them. We need to capture this quickly. Emerging midcareer CI leaders are excellent at responding to national needs and serving their institutions researchers, but need to learn how to shape the national CI agenda. Goals of this workshop in bringing these two groups together: Your Transfer knowledge, experience and especially wisdom from senior CI leaders to emerging CI leaders, in order to enable emerging CI leaders to shape the national research CI landscape. Initiate mentoring relationships between senior CI leaders and emerging CI leaders, in order to foster longer photo here! term professional development. Establish peer mentoring among emerging CI leaders, in order to prepare and position them for national leadership, as senior CI leaders reduce their day to day engagement. National Strategic Computing Initiative: This workshop focus is a key aspect of the NSFs workforce development mission within NSCI.
