TACC Strategic Advisory Board

With rapid developments in advanced computing technologies and their adoption in all fields of science, it is crucial that TACC is accurately guided by the needs of science and society to ensure that we achieve the greatest possible success. Therefore, we have assembled the TACC Strategic Advisory Board to help steer the center in the next phase of its growth.

The Board members help the center's director and leadership team pilot the evolution of TACC's vision and strategy, and execute the center's initiatives. Board members support the mission of TACC by identifying and recommending new opportunities in advanced computational research and development; contributing experience and guidance that enhances TACC's overall growth; reviewing the existing activities of the center; and providing constructive suggestions for enhancing impact and effectiveness.

The TACC Strategic Advisory Board was formed in 2009 and currently has 10 members, each appointed to a two-year term with the option of reappointment at the end of each term. The Board convenes twice a year. We look forward to working with them to continue to expand TACC's reach in the community and to enhance our impact on science, technology and society.
