SGCI Consultation Allows CloudLaunch to Benefit Researchers Across a Wide Variety of Fields

Working with SGCI allowed CloudLaunch to formalize and implement plans to convert a small web-app into a full-fledged science gateway. The resulting gateway can now benefit a large number of researchers from a wide range of disciplines looking to conduct research in the cloud.

How SGCI Gave the VC3 Team Solid Footing to Build a Global Collaboration Platform

Consultation with SGCI gave the VC3 team solid footing for solving framework-specific challenges, among other things, which resulted in a modern, adaptive, and responsive web application which mitigates many of the obstacles faced by researchers when trying to leverage HPC, HTC, and cloud-based resources. The VC3 platform fosters global collaboration and lowers the barrier to entry by providing free (or low cost) resources that would otherwise be inaccessible to small or under-funded projects.

“Aha” Moments Abound at ESIP’s Custom Bootcamp and Beyond

ESIP's Executive Director participated in Science Gateways Bootcamp in 2017. She found the week-long intensive workshop so valuable that she participated again in 2018 to work on a different ESIP project. Soon after, she proposed the idea of sponsoring a standalone Bootcamp for ESIP projects, which we offered in November 2018. A group of participants from that Bootcamp then presented their resulting "pitch decks" at the ESIP Winter Meeting in January 2019.

SGCI Consultation Gives CitSci a Solid and Sustainable Foundation for Growth

Since 2007, CitSci has been on the leading edge of citizen science online, supporting projects on a wide variety of topics. After 10+ years in operation, they submitted a request for SGCI services hoping to get right to work optimizing the performance of CitSci, but soon discovered that there were big decisions to be made before that could happen. Find out how, in a multi-faceted consultation, SGCI staff helped prioritize CitSci's needs and lay the groundwork for growth.

SGCI Client Update: Chem Compute Usage Doubles

In 2017, SGCI EDS Consultants completed work on the Chem Compute science gateway, helping to grow the small classroom operation into one that could handle an increased number of larger job submissions. This piece provides an update on the growth of Chem Compute's reach and how usage of the gateway has doubled since the engagement with SGCI.

SGCI Bootcamp Instructors Present Sessions at EarthCube's All Hands Meeting

Science Gateways Bootcamp instructors presented three sessions at the EarthCube All Hands Meeting. EarthCube, a community of scientists across geoscience domains, has more than 2,500 contributors who work together on contributing to how geoscience research is done using digital resources, such as science gateways.

Gateways 2018 Conference

The annual Gateways conference, which gives gateway developers and users across domains a venue for exchanging experiences, was held in Austin, TX, September 25-27. Gateways 2018 began with tutorials on the first day, which took place at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), and was followed by two days of keynotes, panels, presentations, and demos on the University of Texas, Austin, campus.

SGCI helped build EcologyPlus with customized areas for career development

SGCI's Extended Developer Support (EDS) consultants worked with Teresa Mourad of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) to build a new gateway called EcologyPlus on the HUBzero platform.
