Gateways 2020

Tutorials: Week of October 12
Main Presentations: Week of October 19
Location: From the comfort of your home

We're going online!

With your health and safety in mind, we are moving Gateways 2020 to an online format. We are re-imagining this community gathering, focusing on what matters most to you—learning and connection. 

We want you to have an outstanding—but not exhausting—conference experience. During the week of October 19, we will offer a series of virtual events, including plenaries, parallel sessions, and Learning Labs—with a schedule friendly to all US time zones and those balancing work and caregiving. We will move tutorials to the week prior to our original dates, following a similar schedule.

The registration fee will be substantially reduced, and financial support for registration will be available to any attendees whose travel funds have been frozen.

If you have a question, email us at

About the Conference Series

Hyatt Regency Bethesda at nightThis 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! Gateway developers and users—regardless of their domain area—have a lot in common but have had few venues for exchanging experiences. The fifth Gateways annual conference 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.

Science 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.
