Researchers, scientists, engineers, granting agencies, and ever-more complex research problems have given rise to the scientific “collaboratory” - large organizations which span many institutions, with individual members working together to explore a particular phenomenon. These organizations require computational resources in order to support analyses and to provide platforms where the collaborators can interact. Participants will learn about the XSEDE Community Infrastructure (XCI) group, which assists campuses to use their own resources and promotes the sharing of those resources in order to create collaboratories improving use of the nation's collective cyberinfrastructure. Currently XCI works to provide toolkits and training, and collaborates with organizations such as ACI-REF, XSEDE Campus Champions, and Open Science Grid to identify tools and best practices that support the community. This panel session brings professionals from all of the above organizations together to discuss the progress in and barriers to development of a robust collaborative environment where computational resources can be shared. Participants will be able to contribute to the session, and to XCI’s future initiatives, with their own campus stories and needs. Our goal is to identify what the requirements are for the creation of flexible infrastructure to serve research communities and what these communities will look like in the future: what tools, standards, and training is required in order to support and foster cross-institutional research?
