Community Building: A Mulitfaceted Approach
A group of fellows, alumni and DOE laboratory staff tour the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2009
The DOE CSGF program builds community by focusing on the following areas:
- High performance computing for computational science and engineering research
- Career and professional development
- Leadership development
Community building occurs during activities at the DOE CSGF Annual Program Review, at events around the country, at professional society meetings and through the use of online social media tools.
- Annual program review opportunities include the HPC roundtable discussion and special seminars, talks and gatherings
- Regional events include talks, visits to DOE laboratories, mentoring opportunities and social outings
- Professional society meetings afford fellows and alumni the chance to attend other conferences and present their research
- Wikis webinars and other social networking tools are used to create an online community that complements the connections formed in person
