Science Node Article: Need help with your science gateway? SGCI Focus Week teaches best practices for building, operating, and sustaining science gateways

By Nayiri Mullinix Need help with your science gateway? SGCI Focus Week teaches best practices for building, operating, and sustaining science gateways. If you’re conducting technically-advanced science or engineering research, there’s a good chance that you use or will need to use a science gateway. Whether you call it a gateway, hub, virtual research environment, or one of the many other terms used, a gateway is essentially a web-based, streamlined, user-friendly portal that...

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. Early-bird registration will open in late June. 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...

Science Node article "One-stop data shop" highlights the work of Bootcamp alumni

We recently reported that Carol Song of Purdue University and four co-PIs, including Jack Smith of Marshall University, were awarded a five-year, $4.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation. Both Song and Smith participated in SGCI’s  Science Gateways Bootcamps  while working on separate gateway projects. The grant will allow the team to build a “plug and play” platform, called GeoEDF, that will give researchers the ability to easily access and process geospatial...
