Sponsoring Gateways 2016 provides an opportunity for your organization to support exciting new collaborations and bright young minds, while promoting your products and services to an audience of cutting-edge technology developers, adopters, and decision-makers.
The conference includes an evening Resource Expo on November 2, 2016, allowing sponsors to showcase products and services, network with attendees, and recruit individuals eager to pursue careers in the field. This evening event includes a poster session and reception.
We invite your organization to join us for this unique opportunity to promote your products and services among decision-makers, researchers, innovators, educators, and students from a diverse array of organizations.
Sponsorship levels begin at $1000 ($700 for non-profits). See the Gateways 2016 Conference Sponsorship Prospectus for complete details and benefits, including higher visibility at the conference and Resource Expo and complimentary conference registrations. Sponsorship funds must be donated by October 17, so we recommend that you submit the Prospectus form by October 10 to avoid rushed paperwork.
The Gateways 2016 conference is an expansion of the long-running Gateway Computing Environments workshop series, and the conference will be the 11th gathering dedicated to this topic. Previously, most of the workshops have been a half-day or full-day subcomponent of a larger conference such as Supercomputing or XSEDE. This year, with the National Science Foundation funding of the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI), we are expanding the format to two full days, adding tutorials and a Resource Expo to our previous format of presentations, panels, open-space meetings, and a poster session. We hope that this new format will grow attendance from the usual 30-40 workshop participants to a larger, more diverse group.
If your organization chooses to support the conference in this inaugural year, we will offer “founding sponsor” loyalty discounts in future years when our conference numbers rise and increase the cost of sponsorship levels.
