Upcoming: November 13, 2019
SGCI hosts a free webinar series on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific time.
Conceptualizing a US Research Software Sustainability Institute
This webinar will talk about the need for a US Research Software Sustainability Institute, and the work we have been doing to bring together the community to demonstrate the need for such an institute, and to plan for what an institute ideally would do. We've held a number of workshops, run a survey, ethnographically studied a set of projects, and are planning a trial winter school. Based on these inputs, we're in the process of drafting an institute plan to deliver services to the community, including to gateway developers, and this webinar will discuss this draft plan.
Video and slides from previous webinars are available in our webinar archive. More
The "Cloudify Gateways" solicitation seeks proposals from the SGCI Community to enable science gateways to operate in the public cloud. Participants should look to CloudyCluster and the Google Cloud Platform to provide their computation and storage requirements for this program. In addition to HPC, additional advanced cloud capabilities such as serverless, AI as a service, and massive-scale databases are encouraged to be included as part of the proposals. The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 25, 2019. More
