Summit 2017

Thank you to all those who attended Summit 2017. Building on the success of previous Summits, we continued to make progress in a number of key areas.

Summit 2017 was a working meeting comprising a series of panels and discussions on data management, advanced research computing, coordination of the DRI ecosystem, security, user community development and support, and the nature of the shared responsibilities of the DRI community.
