Hear about the newly awarded SGX3: A Center of Excellence to Extend Access, Expand the Community, and Exemplify Good Practices for CI Through Science Gateways? We look forward to sharing more about SGX3 at Gateways 2022!



Call for Community Participation 



Gateways 2022 will be October 18-20, 2022 in San Diego at Venue 808. Tutorials will take  place in the two weeks before the conference online. 

Science gateways are end-to-end solutions with easy-to-use interfaces enabling the application of  complex research infrastructures such as computing and data infrastructures, instruments, and  other domain-specific resources to support research and education. They may also be known as  portals, virtual research environments, eScience, virtual labs, eResearch, digital repositories, or  research cyberinfrastructure.

Gateways 2022 is planned as an opportunity to highlight the opportunities for science gateways  to teach, empower and engage research and technologies to various communities. It will offer  diverse options for sharing work and networking in the community. The format includes tutorial  sessions, presentations, panels, posters and demos, and an open forum. 

Relevant topics for submissions 

Topics include, but are not limited to: 

  • Architectures, frameworks, and technologies for science gateways 
  • Science gateways sustaining productive, collaborative communities 
  • Support for scalability and data-driven methods in science gateways 
  • Improving the reproducibility of science in science gateways 
  • Science gateway usability, portals, workflows, and tools 
  • Software engineering approaches for scientific work 
  • Aspects of science gateways, such as security and stability 
  • AI and ML for science gateways 
  • Social research on science gateways 
  • Use cases and lessons learned from science gateways 
  • Interconnection of domain and technology 

Presentation Options 

We invite the submission of papers and abstracts related to science gateways. All contributions  will be subject to standard peer review on quality and relevance, which will decide acceptance of  tutorial sessions, presentations, panels, posters and demos, and open forum. Tutorial sessions,  presentations, panels, posters and demos will be published in Zenodo. 

Presentations, demos, panels and tutorials are due June 6 June 20, 2022. Open Forum and poster  submissions are due August 8 2022 August 15, 2022 

Presentations, Demos and Panels 

Presenters of papers and demos will be given a 20-minute time slot (plus 5 minutes for  questions) to provide a summary and update to their work. Panels will be 60 minutes long. 

Submissions must not exceed 2-4 pages. In particular, we encourage submissions from  application scientists and community members reporting their experiences with science  gateways, requirements for future gateways, and visions for technologies. 


Tutorials will receive slots of 90 minutes or 3 hours. A 3-hour tutorial will be presented in two  90-minute segments with a 30-minute break in the middle. Topics can include hands-on  gateway-building techniques, gateway management issues, community-building activities, or the  use of a specific tool.

Submissions must not exceed 2-4 pages. Please specify: (a) your proposed tutorial length, (b)  recommended skill level (e.g., beginner, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisites (e.g.,  familiarity with specific software or technologies), and (c) the technology and/or software  requirements necessary for someone to participate in the tutorial (e.g., do they need to install  software or create an account before the tutorial?). 

Open Forum 

The Open Forum will be 60 minutes long. This will be an opportunity to discuss emerging topics  in science gateways. Submissions must not exceed 500 words. 


The poster session will take place October 18, 2022 at the reception. Authors are expected to  bring a printed poster. Submissions must not exceed 500 words. Posters need to fit with maximum width 30 inches, maximum length 45 inches. We have poster boards that are shared each by two poster presenters. Please keep posters in the maximum size so that it does not overlap with the other poster on the poster board.


Instructions for submissions 

Presentations, demos, panels and tutorials are due June 6 June 20, 2022. Open Forum and poster submissions are due August 8, 2022  August 15, 2022

Step 1: Prepare your submission. 

Papers for presentations, demos, panels, and tutorials must not exceed 2-4 pages. Abstracts for  the Open Forum must not exceed 500 words.

  • Authors (including email and affiliation) 
  • Keywords 
  • Abstract 

You will also be able to revise your abstract or upload an updated PDF until the submission  deadline.
