DescriptionThe Big 5 regions (China, Japan, America (DOE, XSEDE, and DOD), Europe (PRACE and EGI)) are well funded and relatively resource rich. Researchers in these regions can experiment with scales and diverse resources few others worldwide can readily use. Outside of these areas, significant high quality work is being done around the world. Internationally, creative leads have found ways to achieve high impact work both helping their regions as well as contributing to the global research community. In this discussion the panelists will share their experiences with the audience to help the audience members achieve similar goals.
