Gateways 2019 

Monday through Wednesday, September 23–25, 2019
Hosted at the Catamaran Resort,
San Diego, California

About the Conference

Catamaran ResortScience gateways allow academic research or education 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 fourth 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! 

The Call for Participation for
new submissions has closed.

In addition, this year Gateways 2019 is co-located with the eScience conference. The two conferences will offer a shared keynote, presentations about mutually interesting topics, and a shared evening reception, as well as opportunities for mingling during the breaks. Conference attendees will have the option to register for one or both conferences, in full or in part. These two audiences share interests, content, and culture, and we will announce further details of our collaboration later in 2019. This is an opportunity to attend both events!
