The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) works to facilitate and further the goals of the White House Big Data R&D Initiative.
The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
The Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group coordinates programs, budgets and policy recommendations for Health IT R&D.
HCI&IM focuses on information interaction, integration, and management research to develop and measure the performance of new technologies.
HCSS R&D supports development of scientific foundations and enabling software and hardware technologies for the engineering, verification and validation, assurance, and certification of complex, networked, distributed computing systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the High End Computing (HEC) Infrastructure and Applications (I&A) and HEC Research and Development (R&D) Program Component Areas (PCAs).
LSN members coordinate Federal agency networking R&D in leading-edge networking technologies, services, and enhanced performance.
The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
Formed to ensure and maximize successful coordination and collaboration across the Federal government in the important and growing area of video and image analytics
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) has been formed to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities across the Federal government.
MAGIC Team Revitalization
June 2, 2011
The MAGIC (Middleware And Grid Interagency Coordination) team was established in 2002 to improve coordination activities between Federal Agencies, Academic researchers, Industry providers and scientific user communities. MAGIC, part of the NITRD structure, reports to the Large Scale Network (LSN) coordination group, and thus plays an essential role is setting the national program for IT Research and Development. A key objective of MAGIC is to promote cross-agency information sharing and interactions to ensure coordinated programs and directions.
To achieve this objective, the MAGIC team endeavors to serve the various stakeholders, to increase participation by current members, and to encourage new participants to join. The MAGIC team will hold monthly telecom meetings, the first Wednesday of every month. Team members in the DC metro area are encouraged to attend the meeting in person. We will also utilize the Webex video teleconferencing tools to engage remote team members. In addition, the team will utilize the NITRD Wiki to help members prepare for meetings and the LinkedIn social media site to encourage discussions between formal meeting times. The MAGIC team will focus on 3 core elements:
To accomplish these goals, MAGIC team will focus on 6 organizational tasks.
By taking these steps, the MAGIC team, and its team members, will have a profound effect on the creation, operation, and development of scientific computing environments. Please make your voice heard and make future MAGIC meetings valuable.
