The Resource Provider Forum (RP Forum) is a key venue for information sharing and coordination among the RP community, and between RPs and the ACCESS program itself. Participating members of the RP Forum will engage in high-level coordination activities and information-sharing meetings with all ACCESS program tracks and other participating RPs. Until the RP Forum is chartered by the ACCESS program, during the first program year, the XSEDE SP Forum will continue to fulfill this role.
