XSEDE16 BOF on Science Gateways Community Institute

Join us at XSEDE16 on Tuesday, July 19 from 5:15-6:15pm in the Chopin Ballroom for a BOF titled “XSEDE, the Science Gateways Community Institute and You.”

This BOF will provide an overview of the offerings of the new Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI, http://www.sciencegateways.org) and solicit feedback on additional services the community would like to see. The SGCI is the first implementation-phase software institute to be awarded through NSF’s Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) program. SGCI has been designed as a service organization to address challenges with creating and sustaining gateways by offering services to and building community among the research communities developing gateways. The Institute’s five-component design is the result of several years of studies, including many focus groups and a 5,000-person survey of the research community.
