The SGCI serves the science gateway community.

We provide NSF-funded, online and in-person resources and services. Our goal is to facilitate—at little or no cost—the sharing of experiences, technologies, and practices of those working with science gateways. Read success stories about how we've supported gateway development and our community of gateway creators, users, and students.
 
Join the Gateways Community Forum! We've created a discussion forum open to all members of the gateway community. We welcome questions, event listings, and other community-relevant topics.

What is a Gateway? What is a Gateway?

Science gateways allow science & engineering communities to access shared data, software, computing services, instruments, educational materials, and other resources specific to their disciplines. Read more on Wikipedia.

SGCI Webinar Series

SGCI hosts a free webinar series on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific time. 

Portable, Scalable Computation with Containers and Abaco Functions

In this webinar, we will discuss the primary concepts of FaaS and introduce the Abaco API platform, hosted at the Texas Advanced Computing Center. Abaco (Actor Based Containers) is an NSF-funded project to provide a Functions-as-a-Service platform based on Docker containers and the Actor Model of Concurrent Computation to researchers. After an introduction, we’ll walk through an example of packaging, deploying, and scaling a Tensorflow image classifier on the Abaco cloud. Some prior familiarity with Docker and HTTP/Rest APIs would be helpful, though not strictly required.

Video and slides from previous webinars are available in our webinar archive.
