a few lessons learned
A Few Lessons Learned…
  • In the pragmatic networking calls, networks should be in support of some science need
    • Don’t build a solution looking for a problem
  • We still don’t always make great arguments about why we NEED to do upgrades
    • Use numbers
    • Define use cases
    • Get user buy-in
  • Make an argument for your technical solution
long standing nsf data policy
Long Standing NSF Data Policy

“Investigators are expected to share with other researchers, at no more than incremental cost and within a reasonable time, the primary data, samples, physical collections and other supporting materials created or gathered in the course of work under NSF grants. Grantees are expected to encourage and facilitate such sharing.”

Has not been widely enforced, with a few exceptions like OCE

changing data management policy implementation
Changing Data Management PolicyIMPLEMENTATION
  • Planning underway for 2+ years within NSF
  • May 5, 2010 National Science Board meeting
    • Change in the implementation of the existing policy on sharing research data discussed
  • Fall 2010
    • Change in the NSF GPG released

in early 2011
In Early 2011:
  • All proposals must include a data management plan
  • Two-page supplementary document
  • Can request budget to cover costs
  • Echo the actions of other funding agencies
    • NIH, NASA, NOAA, EU Commission
  • What is this going to mean for the networking needs?
conclusions
Conclusions
  • FY09-FY10 has shown a marked increase in NSF support for pragmatic networking
    • Cross-directorate support has in part enabled this
  • Working to continue this trend
  • A complete CI solution requires adequate networking, and end-to-end performance
  • Data sharing is only going to grow
