Strategies for Working Remotely: Advice from Colleagues with Experience

Registration for this event is now closed.

Abstract: Working remotely has suddenly become a near-universal experience for staff members of research organizations, but for some it has been a way of life for years.  In this panel discussion, we brought together five staff members of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories, all members of the DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP), with years of varied experience working remotely.   Topics included advice to people just getting started with working remotely, challenges, unforeseen benefits, and opportunities to look for from this experience, with emphasis on issues faced by collaborating teams in computational research.  Panelists made brief introductory comments followed by open discussion.  We invite you to check out the slides, video, and Q&A document from the webinar below.
