CI Compass: The NSF Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Center of Excellence for Navigating the Major Facilities Data Lifecycle

This poster presents the CI Compass project, which is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Cyberinfrastructure Center of Excellence, which provides expertise and active support to cyberinfrastructure (CI) practitioners at NSF Major Facilities in order to accelerate the data lifecycle (DLC) and ensure the integrity and effectiveness of the cyberinfrastructure upon which research and discovery depend. In this poster, we will provide an overview of the activities of CI Compass: (1) one-on-one engagements with different Major Facilities addressing specific CI issues and needs, (2) topical working groups that address common CI issues across the MFs, (3) community building activities like the CI For Major Facilities Workshops, webinars, etc. (4) a vibrant student program, and (5) disseminating the MF CI best practices through the publishing of technical reports, surveys, technical notes, etc.
