Determining Technology Requirements for Scientific Innovation Partial Approval -Free

This highly interactive workshop, hosted by the NSF CC* funded Engineering and Performance Outreach Center (EPOC) [https://epoc.global] will present a process that can be adopted by Cyberinfrastructure (CI) facilitators to advance the mission of science engagement. Establishing a process to regularly review network requirements (http://www.es.net/science-engagement/science-requirements-reviews/) helps to determine the current and future science communication and collaboration needs for numerous communities. The purpose of these reviews is to accurately characterize the near-term, medium-term and long-term network requirements of the science being performed. This approach brings about a network-centric understanding of the science process used by the researchers and scientists, without asking technical questions directly, and derives network requirements from that understanding.
