BOF: (CANCELLED) XSEDE User Portal, Mobile and Social Media Integration
    Wednesday July 18, 2012 5:30pm - 6:30pm @ King Arthur 3rd Floor

    BOF: XSEDE User Portal, XUP Mobile and Social Media Integration

    Abstract: The XSEDE User Portal (XUP) provides an integrated interface for XSEDE users to access the information and services available to them through the XSEDE project. The XUP allows users to accomplish many things, including: 

    • View system account information 

    • Log in to XSEDE resources 

    • Transfer files both between XSEDE resources and between their desktop and XSEDE resources 

    • Request allocations, and view and manage project allocation usage 

    • Monitor the status of HPC, storage, and visualization resources 

    • Access documentation and news 

    • Register for training 

    • Receive consulting support 

     A companion to the XUP, the XSEDE User Portal Mobile, enables users access to many of the above capabilities through their mobile interface. 

     The XUP team will lead a discussion designed to enhance the capabilities of XSEDE User Portal, to improve the XSEDE User Portal mobile interface and potentially native mobile app versions. This will include exploring ideas to leverage and potentially other popular web-based services into the XUP, including social media. Social media has revolutionized how users communicate with each other and make effective use of the services available to them. The challenge is to how to leverage and integrate social media to advance scientific research. 

     The purpose of this BoF is to collect user feedback about the current XSEDE User Portal and its mobile interface, and to discuss how to best integrate social media and other popular online capabilities into the XUP project help make XSEDE users more productive and promote the science that is accomplished in XSEDE.
