This group is intended for the scientists and engineers who use OSC to find interaction in the research community and want to be central to the advancement of computational methods within and between disciplines. To ensure a productive environment for research, an active Statewide Users Group (SUG) provides the director with program and policy advice. SUG meets bi-monthly and is headed by a chairperson elected yearly from the SUG membership. The SUG has established Allocations, Software and Activities, and Hardware and Operations standing committees to assist in providing advice and direction to the Center.
