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. 

Simplifying Cloud HPC Integration for Gateways

Transitioning high-performance computing (HPC) workloads and data to various sites is a longstanding tradition and challenge in the scientific software and gateway developer communities. Recently more institutions are looking at the ability to integrate cloud for HPC.  During this session, we would like to explore ideas and options of integrating cloud for gateways and HPC workloads.  A few approaches will be discussed including what led to the development of CloudyCluster.  An additional focus will be improvements in latency, which have been seen over the past few years, in the Cloud. Furthermore, this webinar will be an open platform for discussion, so we can all learn from each other’s experiences.

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



From in-person to online: Successes from the first virtual Focus Week

Transforming Gateway Focus Week into a virtual experience presented a unique opportunity to participate in what’s typically an in-person, five-day workshop. Thirteen teams, a total of thirty-two full workshop participants, joined in from November 30-December 8, 2020 for the freshly redesigned experience.

SGCI Tech Blogs

Tech Blogs are written by SGCI experts and offer a variety of resources for gateway builders and developers. It's likely that, from reading the posts, you'll have what you need to incorporate the technologies discussed on your own, but we're here to help if you ever need it.

Guest Blog: The Distant Reader—A Jetstream-Powered Assist for an Age-Old Process

The Distant Reader gateway (an SGCI client) supplements the traditional reading process by allowing the user to make sense of a large body of text when there's just too much to process in one mind. This is useful to researchers and students in various scholarly roles, from scientists doing a literature review to undergraduates who want a "big picture" understanding of an entire semester's readings. The gateway uses a dynamic virtual cluster deployed on the Jetstream cloud. Jetstream is an SGCI Partner.
