NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

NUG Executive Committee (NUGEX)

NUGEX is the voice of the user community to NERSC and DOE. While all NUG events are open to all NERSC users, NUGEX members regularly participate in the monthly teleconferences and the annual face-to-face meeting. NUGEX is consulted on many NERSC policy issues, such as batch configurations, disk quotas, services, and training offerings. NUGEX members also help evaluate nominations for the NERSC Early Career Achievement Awards and submissions to the NERSC High Impact Science at Scale program. NUGEX members serve three-year terms.
