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, e.g., batch configurations, disk quotas, services and training offerings.  Members of NUGEX also help evaluate nominations for the NERSC Achievement Awards and submissions to the NERSC High Impact Science at Scale program. There are three representatives from each office and three members-at-large.

NUGEX members serve for three year terms.
