The SGCI serves the science gateway community.

We provide NSF-funded, online and in-person resources and services. Our goal is to facilitate the sharing of experiences, technologies, and practices within this community at little or no cost to our community members. Read success stories about how we've supported gateway development and our community of gateway creators, users, and students.

NEWS FLASH: The Gateways 2018 Call for Participation deadline has been extended to Wednesday, May 16.
(And if you submit an abstract and draft by the end of May 16, you can upload your review-ready paper until the end of Monday, May 21.)

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.

June Webinar: Tech Sampler—Lessons learned from using Keycloak and Graph QL in gateways

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

Tech Sampler: Lessons Learned from using Keycloak and Graph QL

SGCI's Extended Developer Support team works with many different technologies to help gateways build or enhance their services. This webinar features two such technologies: Keycloak and GraphQL. Keycloak is an Identity and Access Management application that can be used to manage authentication and authorization of users to your gateway, and GraphQL is an alternative to REST services developed at Facebook to support their mobile apps. The webinar will provide an overview of both technologies. 

Video and slides from our May webinar about RStudio are available in our webinar archive.
