San Diego Supercomputer Center's Annual High Performance Computing and Data Science Summer Institute, August 5-9, 2019

The San Diego Supercomputer Center's annual week-long workshop focuses on a broad spectrum of introductory-to-intermediate topics in High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Data Science. The High Performance Computing and Data Science Summer Institute welcomes researchers from academia and industry, especially in domains not traditionally engaged in supercomputing, or who have problems that cannot typically be solved using local computing resources. This year's Summer Institute continues...

Internet2 and NSF Announce Selection of First-Phase Research Proposals for Exploring Clouds for Acceleration of Science (E-CAS) Project

Internet2 and the National Science Foundation (NSF) confirmed the selection of six proposals for the first phase of the Exploring Clouds for Acceleration of Science (E-CAS) project that was first  announced in November 2018.  The E-CAS project comprises two phases of NSF-funded, campus-based research that will be supported in part through contributions from Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud to produce a deeper understanding of the use of cloud computing in accelerating...

Science Node Article: Join the Gateways 2019 conference

By Nayiri Mullinix Join the Gateways 2019 conference Gateways 2019 offers gateway creators and enthusiasts the chance to connect, learn, share, and shape the future of gateways. Opportunities for participation are open now. Science gateways bring together components of advanced cyberinfrastructure—data collections, instruments, supercomputers, clouds, collaboration capabilities, and analytical tools—behind streamlined, user-friendly interfaces. The 4th annual Gateways...

NSF Cyber Carpentry: Data Life-Cycle Training (two week summer workshop opportunity for postdocs, doctoral students, and domain/computational/information scientists)

Massive data collections (i.e., “Big Data”) have ushered in a paradigm shift in the way scientific research is conducted and new knowledge is discovered. The traditional observe-hypothesize-test model of small-scale scientific endeavor is increasingly augmented and in some cases supplanted with collaborative scientific research applying complex patterns of data integration and analysis involving multi-disciplinary teams from distributed organizations brought together to solve a common...

SGCI Client and Bootcamp Alumni Launches Social Media Macroscope

Joe Yun, a participant of the very first Science Gateways Bootcamp in April 2017 , has announced the launch of his new gateway, Social Media Macroscope. In the blog he recently published on Medium , Yun not only invites people to start using the gateway but also explains the reasons why people might want to use it and the gap it serves.  Yun has been active in the SGCI community and is currently engaging with our Extended Developer Support consultants to...

Science Node Article: What is dark life?

In this Science Node article, Mark Miller, SGCI Steering Committee member and biochemist at the University of California, San Diego, discusses organisms that are not visible to the human eye and that cannot be cultured. These organisms, referred to as dark life, are now being studied using new techniques in DNA analysis combined with advanced computing power, also known as 'the computational microscope." Unsurprisingly, these new techniques produce a lot of data to analyze, which can present...
