On Tuesday 1st February, we will have a talk from the Andrew Manning of the National Center for Supercomputing Operations:
CIRCUSES: CyberInfrastructure for Research Collaborations Using Software Environments for Science
T. Andrew Manning, Senior Research Programmer, Center for Astrophysical Surveys (CAPS), NCSA
At NCSA we have developed a full-stack cyberinfrastructure (CI) capability designed primarily to support academic collaborations that typically involve researchers from multiple institutions with datasets from several different facilities. I will present the architecture of our Kubernetes-based framework as well as example use cases from existing projects, showcasing the flexible deployment system and some collaborative tools and services for easy identity and access management, messaging, sharing data, code development, documentation, computing and more. I will demonstrate alert streaming via the Hopscotch protocol in our deployed JupyterHub environment and highlight the potential for our framework to power the next chapter of SCiMMA in advancing Multi-Messenger Astrophysics.
