In the past year, many projects and organizations active in advanced research computing have become acutely aware of the need to ensure that the language they use in formal and informal writing and speech, from technical standards, presentations and educational materials to the language used in the workplace, is free from terminology that is contrary to their commitment to foster an inclusive environment for all community members.

In particular, the Extreme Science Engineering and Discovery Environment (XSEDE) project is addressing these concerns by forming a Terminology Task Force (TTF) to review, address, and define processes to eliminate offensive terms in their materials. Members of the XSEDE TTF propose to organize this BoF session to briefly review their progress in order to stimulate discussion and exchange of best practices among interested PEARC21 participants. Several groups facing this complex problem are being invited to participate in the discussion by sharing their own approaches and experiences.
