Gateways 2016

The 11th Gateway Computing Environments Conference (formerly GCE)
Wednesday and Thursday, November 2 & 3, 2016
Hosted at the San Diego Supercomputer Center in San Diego, California

SDSC Building at Night

Science gateways serve as connection points, assembling various components of advanced cyberinfrastructure—data collections, instruments, supercomputers, clouds, collaboration capabilities, and analytical tools—behind streamlined, user-friendly interfaces. They are typically a community-developed web portal or a suite of desktop applications. By providing access to top-tier resources, gateways enable researchers with a common goal as well as students and members of the broader community.

Gateway developers and users — regardless of their domain area — have a lot in common but have had few venues for exchanging experiences. The newly expanded Gateways annual conference (formerly the Gateway Computing Environments workshop series) will be an opportunity for gateway creators and enthusiasts to learn, share, connect, and shape the future of gateways while forming a vibrant community with common interests.

This year’s conference will feature keynotes, presentations of extended abstracts, panels, posters, hands-on tutorials, demos, and plenty of opportunities to connect with colleagues. We invite you to join us!
