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.
Galaxy: Powering Science from the Desktop to Global Cyberinfrastructure
Wednesday, June 10, 2020, at 1 pm ET/10 am Pacific
Presented by Nate Coraor, System Administrator, Penn State University, Galaxy Project Team Member
Part four of a series of webinars providing an introduction to a variety of gateway platforms that can be used for building new gateways.In addition to being open source software, Galaxy is a cloud service available for free to researchers worldwide at usegalaxy.org. From its humble beginnings on a server in a closet at Penn State to a collection of physical and virtual hosts at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), the free public site offers researchers worldwide free storage and dedicated compute, as well as scalable compute time on the NSF-funded Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). As a community-focused and -driven software project, Galaxy is also run by academic, research, and commercial institutions for public and private purposes, on premises and in the cloud. This talk highlights some of the technologies and development projects that have made this diversity of deployments possible.
Supercomputing. Seamlessly. Interactive computing via Open OnDemand. Everywhere.
Wednesday, July 8, 2020, at 1 pm ET/10 am Pacific
Presented by Alan Chalker, Director of Strategic Platforms, Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC)
Part five of a series of webinars providing an introduction to a variety of gateway platforms that can be used for building new gateways.
Open OnDemand (OOD) can help lower the barrier to entry and ease access to computing resources for both new and existing users of HPC, big data, and analytics. OOD is an NSF-funded open-source HPC portal whose goal is to provide an easy way for system administrators to provide web access to their HPC resources and is in use at dozens of HPC centers. This presentation will touch upon the capabilities and architecture of OOD, installation experiences, the priority of upcoming features such as customized workflows, training users, integration with other science gateways, and growing the community.
