Accounting for about 15 percent of attendees, the champions bring a wealth of experience to the program, including knowledge of TeraGrid systems and services, their local campus resources, and other cyberinfrastructures such as the Open Science Grid.

Pittsburgh provided the perfect backdrop for high performance computing enthusiasts to connect professionally and socially. The presence of regional champions allowed the 100 student attendees to become acquainted with experts from their regional institutions, in addition to the 150 TeraGrid personnel and users who were also there.
