This is a great way to get better at a career in helping researchers use research computing.

It's also a great way to meet a community of fellow research computing facilitators.

Taking into account the Introductory workshops in 2015, 2016 and 2017, and a couple of mini-workshops run separately by the U California system, the Virtual Residency workshops have already served:

188 institutions in 51 US states and territories and 5 other countries, including:

  • 27 Minority Serving Institutions
  • 32 non-PhD-granting institutions
  • 58 institutions in 24 of the 26 EPSCoR jurisdictions
  • 130 of 251 Campus Champion institutions
  • in the US News rankings of national universities
    • 7 of the Top 10 (70%)
    • 17 of the Top 25 (68%)
    • 32 of the Top 50 (64%)
    • 57 of the Top 100 (57%)
    • 84 of the Top 150 (56%)
    • 97 of the Top 200 (48%)

Does your institution have lots of researchers and educators who want to use advanced computing, but need some help learning how?

You or someone at your institution can learn to be more effective at helping researchers and educators use Research Cyberinfrastructure (CI)!

Registration cost: FREE

You aren't required to have taken an Introductory workshop from 2015, 2016 or 2017 to take the 2018 Intermediate workshop.

You don't have to any affiliation with the Clemson-led ACI-REF/CaRC effort, in order to participate in the 2018 Virtual Residency – though of course anyone in that group is welcome to apply!

The workshop will begin Sunday evening with a a welcome/introductory session.

We'll then run all day each day for the full week, finishing Friday around suppertime.

Agenda coming soon.
