The SGCI serves the science gateway community...

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.

December Webinar: Gateway Showcase

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.



SGCI Client Chem Compute Meets Goals

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.

SGCI-Affiliated Students Win at IBM BlueHack

Three students who have been involved with SGCI programs were invited to participate in IBM's first BlueHack for Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The students had opportunities to interact with IBM employees, participate in contests, and interview for internships and jobs. Congratulations to the Hagen Hodgkins, Disaiah Bennet, and Kevin Benton, all students at Elizabeth City State University (one of seven partner universities that comprise the SGCI leadership and staff team) for placing third in the IBM contests!
