Extended Collaborative Support Services

Through XSEDE's Extended Collaborative Support Service (ECSS) program, users have access to cyberinfrastructure experts with a variety of expertise. ECSS experts, many with advanced degrees in domain areas, are available for collaborations lasting months to a year to help researchers fundamentally advance their use of XSEDE resources.

Expertise is available over a wide range of areas:

  • performance analysis,
  • petascale optimization,
  • efficient use of accelerators,
  • I/O optimization,
  • data analytics
  • visualization
  • use of XSEDE by science gateways,
  • workflows

ECSS can be requested along with compute and storage resources through the XSEDE allocation process. ECSS requests can also be added to existing allocations as supplements. For sample requests, visit the ECSS justification page.

Current ECSS projects can be found on the ECSS Project Page and more detailed video presentations on recent projects can be found on the ECSS Symposium site. For further information or to speak with someone about ECSS, contact the XSEDE Help Desk.
