Science Gateway Institute Workshop call for papers open until Aug. 31

August 31, 2013 @ 12:00 am

The Science Gateway Institute Workshop, held in conjunction with the IEEE Cluster conference to be held Sept. 23-27 in Indianapolis, is accepting abstract-length submissions from potential workshop participants through Aug. 31. The workshop will be held Sept. 27. A Science Gateway is a community-developed set of tools, applications, and data collections that are integrated through a web portal or a suite of applications. Gateways can provide access to many things – a highly-tuned parallel application running on a supercomputer, a remote instrument like a telescope or electron microscope, a curated data collection, tools to create workflows and visualizations linking these different resources and collaborative venues to discuss results, share curricula and presentations and more. Gateways enable not only researchers with a common scientific goal but also students and members of the community more generally by providing access to top-tier resources. As cyberinfrastructure becomes increasingly complex and the most difficult scientific problems depend on advanced digital resources, researchers are turning to gateways to improve their efficiency. Gateway developers typically have few venues for exchanging experiences. While there is much that is common in gateway development across domains, often work is done in many different vacuums, where one group does not benefit from developments in another. We invite the submission of papers related to various aspects of science gateways. Abstract-length submissions will be due Saturday, August 31 at 11:59 pm Pacific time. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Enabling technologies and development frameworks
  • Ready to use science gateways in different areas and disciplines
  • Portal technology and portal construction methods
  • Security, user tracking and accounting in science gateways
  • Success metrics and approaches to sustainability
  • Usability studies or survey papers
  • Workflows and service composition in science gateways
  • Integration of scientific instruments
  • Interfaces to cloud computing resources
  • Successful use of collaborative tools and social media
  • Gateways in use in education
  • Gateways and mobile applications
  • Demonstrations/success stories
