User Advisory Council
The User Advisory Council (UAC) exists to give users more input into the policies and services that shape their experiences at the ALCF. Comprised of users from an array of scientific and technical backgrounds, the UAC meets monthly to provide advice and feedback to facility leadership on the current state of ALCF resources and services from the user perspective.
Collectively, UAC members represent ongoing projects from all current program types (INCITE, ALCC, Early Science, Director's Discretionary) using the facility’s computational resources. To qualify for a one-year UAC term, a user must be a member of an active project, but need not be a PI. Members are appointed by the ALCF director in January of each year.
For more information about the User Advisory Council, please contact the UAC ALCF liaison.
