Compute Canada Launches National Consultation Plan - Town Hall Meetings Across Canada
Compute Canada (CC) is undertaking an extensive consultation process to develop a strategic plan to direct its activities over the next five years, 2014 - 2019. Starting on December 4, a series of Town Hall sessions will solicit input from research communities across the country.
An executive summary and an overview of a draft strategic plan has been created for attendees to review before the Town Hall Meetings and the discussions at these sessions will be structured around the following questions:
- What is the most significant gap or problem in the delivery of advanced computing in Canada?
- What is the most important thing that CC should do during its next mandate?
- What are the particular challenges CC will face in achieving its proposed goals?
- Are we being sufficiently forward looking? What is missing?
