New Gateway Brings Advanced Computing Resources to the University of South Dakota

At the University of South Dakota (USD), access to advanced digital resources and cyberinfrastructure has been limited. By working with SGCI to build the USD Gateway, an accessible platform for learning scientific applications, researchers and students now have the opportunity to step away from their laptops and onto shared resources that can run quicker and larger jobs.

Science Gateways Bootcamp [now Gateway Focus Week]: Enthusiastic Praise from Cohort Three

Case Study: Gateway Expertise When You Need It—Growing QUBES by Working with the Science Gateways Community Institute

This case study presentation highlights the work that SGCI completed with the QUBES science gateway and illustrates how our services can support multiple aspects of a project. Specifically, we describe our hands-on consulting services, Science Gateways Bootcamp training, inclusion in the Gateway Catalog, the Gateways conference series, and our internship program, and how each element provided different facets of support to the growing QUBES community.

PlantingScience Community Doubles in Size After Consultation With SGCI

PlantingScience worked with SGCI user experience consultants to design new interfaces that would give their users more control. As a result, the users, who are teachers, are not only happier with the experience of using the website, but it has also meant that the PlantingScience staff spends less time helping them. Thanks to these changes, the PlantingScience team doubled the number of teachers and student teams in the program and can look forward to supporting even more growth in the future.

SGCI Client Chem Compute Meets Goals

The Chem Compute science gateway had humble beginnings as a small classroom operation but, after engaging with SGCI, it can now serve many more undergraduate students simultaneously. The work that was completed dramatically reduced queue times (from minutes to seconds), which was important for the gateway's undergraduate audience.

Gateways 2017 Conference

The Gateways 2017 conference took place in October on the campus of the University of Michigan. The conference was attended by 102 people, and participants joined from 20 states and 3 countries, traveling to Ann Arbor from as far away as Australia. The first day of the conference was dedicated entirely to tutorials, while the second and third days offered a packed conference program.

Report from October 2017 Science Gateways Bootcamp [now Gateway Focus Week]

The second Science Gateways Bootcamp of 2017 took place in October in Indianapolis, IN. Eight teams participated in this intensive, week-long workshop to gain the skills needed for developing, operating, and sustaining gateways. As was the case with attendees of the inaugural Bootcamp in April 2017, participants balanced intensive learning and hands-on work with fun evening gatherings and opportunities for networking with their cohort and instructors.
