Pre-Meeting Planning

TopicRequested byTime required (estimate)Notes
Deployments of all three aspects within one instance
  • Identify the issues before the F2F if any
  • Resolve them and have a documented deployment procedure
  • PDAC cluster move into the k8s commons in Oct.? More details needed
Connect all three aspects
  • Search result user gets at portal is accessible through NB, and vice versa.
  • Search submitted by DAX API is accessible through portal and NB.
  • Understand and clarify the different types of tokens before F2F
  • Portal and DAX resolve the token passing issues
  • login page supplied by NCSA for portal access
  • login and get the token for DAX
  • user management (password change, etc.)
WebDAV API for workspace
  • relationship with A+A needs to be clarified
Python access to LSST data (next to database process)
  • afw.table data access through butler, enable panda compatible format (but it may be not realistic to provide it in time)
  • access to Parquet formatted data?
  • 2 use cases: after burner data process with LSST pipeline; just get the data as close as to community standard as possible and so the community tools can be used
  • Fritz Mueller Colin Slater will give a status on this
Tour of NPCF facility

Joel Plutchak or Michelle Butler can coordinate if this is desired.

1.5 hoursIf desired, a tour of the National Petascale Computing Facility can be arranged. ~45 minute tour with 10-15 minutes travel each way.
Perspectives from elsewhere in NCSA:
  • Lessons learned from DES data access infrastructure (tools, usage, etc)
  • National Data Service (NDS) as a scientific gatewa

Food nearest NCSA:

  • Daily Byte (sandwiches); NCSA Lobby
  • Daily Byte II (sandwiches); Electrical Engineering Building lobby (1 block east)
  • Einsteins (sandwiches); Siebel Center lobby (next building south)
  • Beckman Café (cafeteria-style; sandwiches and hot entrees with vegetarian & vegan options); Beckman Institute (1 block east-northeast)

    • Niro’s Gyros

Many more options slightly farther afield (3/4 to 1 mile):




The University of Illinois Willard Airport is 5 miles south of the Home2suites in the village of Savoy. Taxi, Lyft, or Uber should be about $12 plus tip.

Mass Transit

C-U buses generally cost $1 per one-way trip. iStops are campus stops where it is unnecessary to pay a fare to ride the Gold, Illini, Silver, Teal, and Yellow routes. iStop locations are indicated on individual route maps with an iStop symbol (an orange octagon with a white "i" inside) and are identified as such on bus stop signs at the stop location.

The Brown route is closest to the Home2 Suites with a stop at Fox Drive and State Street. Disembark at Springfield and Sixth; NCSA is ½ mile northeast. Route 9B is counter-clockwise (to NCSA), route 9A is clockwise (to the hotel).

A Gold route stop is a long block north of the hotel at State and Kirby. Disembark at the Ceramics building shelter on Goodwin Avenue; NCSA is 0.3 miles north. Take Gold East to NCSA, Gold West to the hotel.

Use the C-U MTD Trip Planner to investigate times and options, but beware of options having you board/disembark at Lot E-14 or St. Mary's and Oak. To get to/from the hotel you have to traverse the narrow St. Mary's Road under an overpass with no sidewalk or shoulder and plenty of morning/evening traffic.
