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. 

Containers and Kubernetes: A Crash Course

Containers offer gateways a reliable way to enable reproducible, self-contained applications in a lightweight, efficient, and fast environment. In addition, Kubernetes orchestrates containers to create a tightly-integrated system for automating deployment of containerized applications such as Docker. This webinar will give a brief introduction to both Containers and Kubernetes in the hopes that the words won't be scary and new users will be able to ask the right questions.

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



Gateway Focus Week (formerly Science Gateways Bootcamp)

Gateway Focus Week is a week-long, intensive workshop for leaders of gateways who want to further develop and scale their work. Through hands-on activities, gateway teams learn to articulate the value of their work to key stakeholders and to create a strong development, operations, and sustainability plan. The next Focus Week will be September 9-13, 2019, in Chicago, IL. The application will open in early June.
