Gateways 2022 About


About the Gateways Conference Series

This gathering for gateway creators and enthusiasts typically features hands-on tutorials, demos, keynotes, presentations, panels, posters, and plenty of opportunities to connect with colleagues. In 2020, we moved the conference online, which is where we remained for 2021. With the success of our online meetings, we've decided to offer two versions of the conference in 2022: one "mini" version online in the spring, and a "full" in-person version in the fall. 

We invite you to join us! Gateway developers and users—regardless of their domain area—have a lot in common but have had few venues for exchanging experiences. The Gateways annual conference is an opportunity for gateway creators and enthusiasts to learn, share, connect, and shape the future of gateways as part of a vibrant community with common interests.

Science gateways allow academic research or education communities to access shared data, software, computing services, instruments, educational materials, and other resources specific to their disciplines. They are typically a web portal or a suite of desktop applications.
