Domain Champions

Domain Champions act as ambassadors by spreading the word about what XSEDE can do to boost the advancement of their field, based on their personal experience, and to connect interested colleagues to the right people/resources in the XSEDE community (ECSS staff, campus champions, documentation/training, helpdesk, etc.). Domain Champions work within their discipline, rather than within a geographic or institutional territory.

The Table below lists our current domain champions. We are very interested in adding new domains as well as additional champions for each domain. Please contact if you are interested in a discussion with a current domain champion, or in becoming a domain champion yourself.
