SGCI hosts a free webinar series on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific time.
National Data Service (NDS) Labs Workbench: A Scalable Platform for Research Data Access, Education, and Training
National Data Service (NDS) consortium is developing the Labs Workbench platform, a scalable, web-based system intended to support turn-key deployment of encapsulated data management and analysis tools to support exploratory analysis and development on cloud resources that are physically "near" the data and associated high-performance computing (HPC) systems. The Labs Workbench may complement existing science gateways by enabling exploratory analysis of data and the ability for users to deploy and share their own tools. Join us to learn about use cases and other recent findings.
Video and slides from our November webinar on usability and user-centered design are now posted. More
Did you attend Gateways 2017? Did you wish you could have attended, but weren't able to make it this year? We've got you covered! Read this blog post to either reminisce or to find out what you missed. Take a peek, too, at this guest blog post from Sarah Richmond who traveled all the way from Australia to present at Gateways 2017. Remember to mark your calendars: Gateways 2018 is happening in Austin, TX September 25-27! More
Chem Compute science gateway had humble beginnings as a small classroom operation. Mark Perri created it in an effort to bring down barriers to computational chemistry resources at Sonoma State University and soon realized that he would need to make some changes in order for it to be an efficient and reliable tool for his students. Since his engagement with SGCI, Chem Compute is not only used by his students (just last week, Perri's students submitted 2,249 jobs) but is also seeing a growing user base from users all around the country.
