PEARC19 wrap-up: Continuing our Commitment to Open Science

Jim Basney and Von Welch
Trusted CI had another successful presence at PEARC19. As noted in our pre-conference post, we presented our technical paper, a workshop, a panel, a poster, and exhibitor table; as well as attending and contributing to many other PEARC-related events.

A few highlights:
  • Von's panel, "Community Engagement at Scale: NSF Centers of Expertise," was attended at full capacity.
  • Our workshop, "Trustworthy Scientific Cyberinfrascture," was the first public debut of our Fellows. Matias Carrasco Kind, Jay Yang, Aunshul Rege, and Gabriella Perez shared their research backgrounds and discussed their specific cybersecurity needs.
  • Members of the NSF project Services Layer at the Edge (SLATE) met face to face with Trusted CI to discuss their upcoming engagement.
  • A series of lightning talks from Science Gateway operators during the Trusted CI workshop provided four gateway operators a chance to connect with the community on their cybersecurity issues.
  • A random lunch encounter between Trusted CI staff and people in the Jupyter community led to a lively discussion on Jupyter security and is expected to lead to an upcoming collaboration on providing a Jupyter security workshop at a future conference.
  • We presented at the AI4GOOD workshop regarding cybersecurity and ethics of artificial intelligence.
Von's Panel - Not a single open seat!
We thank the PEARC program committee for providing the opportunity to connect with members of our community and look forward to PEARC20.
