Gateways 2017: Call for Participation

Gateways 2017: The 12th Gateway Computing Environments Conference

Monday through Wednesday, October 23 to 25, 2017

Hosted at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Science gateways serve as connection points, assembling various components of advanced cyberinfrastructure—data collections, instruments, supercomputers, clouds, collaboration capabilities, and analytical tools—behind streamlined, user-friendly interfaces. Gateway developers and users — regardless of their domain area — have a lot in common but have had few venues for exchanging experiences. The 2nd annual Gateways conference will be a continuing opportunity for gateway creators and enthusiasts to learn, share, connect, and shape the future of gateways while building a vibrant community with common interests.

We welcome the submission of many presentation formats on the topic of science or engineering gateways. Subjects may include their design, use, impact, development process, sustainability, best practices — or any other aspect that you think fellow gateway creators or users will find interesting to learn. We also welcome educational topics directed toward the next generation of gateway creators. An expanded list of relevant topics may be viewed on the conference website.
