Science Gateways: Helping Communities Lead the Way

Time 04/28/15 08:45AM-10:00AM

Room Mount Vernon B

Session Abstract

A science gateway is web-based infrastructure that connects researchers to distributed jobs, tools, workflows and data. A science gateway addresses the requirements of a targeted community, often hiding underlying infrastructure while offering advanced analytic features. While science gateway providers are often computer scientists, gateway users are commonly scientists focused on research questions outside networking.

How can science gateway providers best help communities collaborate? What are the core services that a science gateway platform might provide to almost any community? What are the keys to end-to-end performance? A panel composed of two scientists and two science gateway providers will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing science gateway providers.
