Our monthly webinars highlight examples of gateways, tools, and best practices.
SGCI hosts a webinar series on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific (1 hour long). We feature a rotating selection of topics including tool and technology demos, best practices, and gateway showcases. These webinars are recorded for future viewing and are posted in our archive.
We announce each webinar several weeks ahead through our newsletter and on this website.
Webinars will be at the same connection coordinates for future months so that you can add the series to your calendar.

Guidance and Survey Results from the Trustworthy Data Working Group
Wednesday, October 7, 2020, at 1 pm ET/10 am Pacific
Presented by Jim Basney, Senior Research Scientist, NCSA
In April and May, the Trustworthy Data Working Group (https://www.trustedci.org/trustworthy-data) conducted a survey of the scientific community about data security concerns and practices. 111 participants completed the survey from a wide range of positions and roles within their organizations and projects. The working group published an analysis of the survey results in June (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3906865). Over the past three months, the working group drafted guidance, shaped by the results of the survey, on trustworthy data for science projects and cyberinfrastructure developers. This guidance addresses attributes of trustworthiness, barriers to trustworthiness, tools and technologies for achieving trustworthiness, and methods for communicating trustworthiness. In this webinar, Jim will present the working group's survey analysis and draft guidance, discuss relevance to science gateway scenarios, and invite input from the science gateway community on the topic of trustworthy data. The working group will be revising its guidance in November, incorporating input received from this webinar and other community outreach events, to be included in the working group's final report in December.
