Gateways 2022 Travel Support Blog: Shubhavi Arya

Attending Gateways 2022 

By: Shubhavi Arya

The Gateways 2022 conference was one of the most memorable conferences I have attended during my PhD career which was made possible through a generous travel grant awarded to both me and my co-author. My travel grant covered my flight, registration as well as my accommodation in a pet friendly hotel which allowed me to travel comfortably with my service dog.

The conference began and me and my co-author presented our posted for our science gateway “Engine for Malware Technology” (EMT) during the poster session. The poster session was very well organized with servers serving food and drinks provided. I interacted with a variety of faculty and graduate researchers to learn about the different science gateways developed by them. There were several that caught my eye particularly the Unidata Science Gateway which provided access to unified resources for education and research in Earth Systems Science.

The next two days were filled with keynotes, speaker presentations and networking mixers. The conference had some outstanding speakers and researchers presenting their work. I was thrilled with the amount of information I was able to consume in such a short span of time. I particularly found the demo and tutorial sessions preceding the conference to be my favorite highlights specifically the Open HPC as well as Apache Airvata tutorials. I also liked the speaker presentation on the Delta Gateway which showed the use case of mining the latest GPU resources through a science gateway.

This was a great conference which provided me with exposure to applications of Science Gateways to a breadth of areas from neuroscience to graphical interfaces and geographical systems. If I had to go back in time, I would definitely chose to be a part of this conference again!

Gateways 2022 took place from October 18-20, 2022 in San Diego, CA.
