The Global Research Platform

SC19 Global Research Platform (GRP) Birds of a Feather (BOF) meeting

For those attending SC19 in Denver, Colorado, we will hold the "Global Research Platform (GRP): Creating Worldwide Advanced Services and Infrastructure for Science” Birds of a Feather (BOF) meeting:

International scientific initiatives collaborate on building, accessing and analyzing data from one-of-a-kind advanced instruments in unique locations around the globe, connected to remote computational, data storage, and visualization systems at speeds of gigabits and terabits per second. The Global Research Platform (GRP) focuses on the design, implementation, and operation strategies for next-generation distributed services and network infrastructure, on a global scale, to facilitate data transfer and accessibility. GRP BoF presentations and discussions address global science drivers and their requirements and describe emerging Research Platforms worldwide that are developing and customizing data fabrics and distributed cyberinfrastructure to support data-intensive scientific workflows.

To see demonstrations relevant to GRP, visit us at the StarLight research booth on the exhibition floor from Tuesday-Thursday, Booth #993. 

See you at SC19!
