ACCI - Task Forces

In 2009 the NSF-wide Advisory Committee for Cyberinfrastucture (ACCI) established six task forces to investigate long term cyberinfrastructure issues:

  • Campus Bridging
  • Cyberlearning and Workforce Development
  • Data and Visualization
  • Grand Challenges
  • High Performance Computing
  • Software for Science and Engineering

These task forces were each led by ACCI members and their membership included a cross section of members from both academic and industrial communities. Over a two year period the task forces gathered broad community input via open workshops and meetings, solicitation of white papers, and other outreach efforts. Each task force subsequently discussed and generated a final report containing recommendations and ideas for advancing cyberinfrastructure in support of NSF research.

The recommendations of each task force were discussed in depth during the December 2010 ACCI meeting, and the final reports were approved by the ACCI on April 1st 2011.
