Advisory Groups

NERSC Users Group

The NERSC Users Group (NUG) provides advice and feedback to NERSC on the current state and future delivery of NERSC resources and services. Open to all NERSC users, the group promotes the effective use of the center's high performance computing facilities by sharing information, suggesting new research and technology directions and communicating user concerns.

NERSC Policy Board

The NERSC Policy Board (NPB) is composed of widely respected leaders in science, computing technology, or the management of scientific research and/or facilities. It meets at least annually and provides scientific and executive-level advice to the Berkeley Lab Director regarding the NERSC program. It addresses issues such as resource utilization to maximize the present and future scientific impact of NERSC and long-range planning, including the research and development necessary for future capabilities.
