SGCI webinars bring together community members across the globe.

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.

In 2020, SGCI is featuring a series of webinars providing an introduction to a variety of gateway platforms that can be used for building new gateways. Each webinar will highlight the ways that the platform can be used to build gateways. The first three presentations will be in January, March, and April.

The CIPRES Workbench Framework: A Platform for Creating Science Gateways

Wednesday, August 12, 2020, at 1 pm ET/10 am Pacific

Presented by Mark Miller, Principal Investigator, San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC)

Part six of a series of webinars providing an introduction to a variety of gateway platforms that can be used for building new gateways.

The CIPRES Workbench Framework (CWF) is an open source software framework for creating new science gateways with minimal overhead. It can be deployed on a modest server and can be configured to submit command-line instructions to any resource where the application has submission privileges. It is designed to be highly configurable/customizable, and supports GUI-based access to HPC resources through a web-browser interface as well as programmatic access via a ReSTful API. The CWF was created to support HPC access for the Phylogenetics community, where it has supported 30,000 users over the past decade. It has since been used to create gateways that support Neurosciences (the NeuroScience Gateway) as well as Cryo-Electron microscopy (the COSMIC2 Gateway).
