Gateways 2018: The 13th Gateway Computing Environments Conference (formerly GCE)

Tuesday through Thursday, September 25–27, 2018
Hosted at the University of Texas at Austin

Campus of UT AustinScience gateways allow science & engineering communities to access shared data, software, computing services, instruments, educational materials, and other resources specific to their disciplines. They are typically a web portal or a suite of desktop applications.

Gateway developers and users—regardless of their domain area—have a lot in common but have had few venues for exchanging experiences. The third Gateways annual conference (formerly the Gateway Computing Environments workshop series) is an opportunity for gateway creators and enthusiasts to learn, share, connect, and shape the future of gateways as part of a vibrant community with common interests.

This gathering for gateway creators and enthusiasts features hands-on tutorials, demos, keynotes, presentations, panels, posters, and plenty of opportunities to connect with colleagues. We invite you to join us! 

Registration is open!
