Title: A survey of CompSustNet research, education, and outreach

Abstract: The talk will survey research, education, and outreach in CompSustNet. There will be unintentional gaps in my coverage of CompSustNet activities in this "draft talk", so there will be opportunities for the audience to help fill in the gaps in my coverage. There will also be opportunities to suggest how CompSustNet, and computational sustainability generally, might grow by filling in real gaps in its current coverage of research, education, and outreach. I will also survey other large centers and networks in related spaces of computing and/or sustainability, which might also inform CompSustNet's plans.
