2020 Gateway Focus Weeks

During Focus Week, teams engage in hands-on activities that help them articulate the value of their work to key stakeholders. Participating teams produce a strong development, operations, and sustainability plan with a corresponding pitch deck that includes actionable goals. By working closely across teams, participants have the opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences and challenges. Focus Week attendees leave with a flexible toolkit that can be used as their projects continue to mature. This year Focus Week will be offered on the East Coast and West Coast. 

  • June 1-5 | Columbia University in New York, NY
  • Nov. 30-Dec. 4 | San Diego Supercomputer Center in La Jolla, CA

Focus Week is subsidized by the National Science Foundation. This allows you to attend what would otherwise be a $2,500 per team event at no cost other than travel, hotel, and a few meals. Most lunches and dinners are provided as part of the networking and cohort building activities. Hear more about Focus Week from one of the lead instructors, Nancy Maron: Gateway Focus Week Webinar

Apply by March 27 for the first session. 

IWSG 2020 (12th International Workshop on Science Gateways)
June 10-12 2020
Cardiff, Wales

The triumvirate of technologies – Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the hybridlate Cloud (Cloud, Fog, Edge), complemented with modern software engineering practices, stimulates the emergence of new approaches to Science Gateways. Blockchain and Smart Contracts could also be instrumental in this respect as they may facilitate decentralised, standards and market driven aggregation of data and computing resources, which are needed for scientific work. These technologies may also be useful for the development of new Virtual Research Environments and Virtual Labs.

We invite the submission of papers related to Science Gateways. Topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Architectures, frameworks and technologies for science gateways
  • Science gateways sustaining productive collaborative communities
  • Support for scalability and data-driven methods in science gateways
  • Improving the reproducibility of science in science gateways
  • Science gateway usability, portals, workflows and tools
  • Software engineering approaches for scientific work
  • Aspects of science gateways, such as security and stability
We, in particular, encourage the submissions from application scientists and community members, reporting their experiences with science gateways. There are three forms of presentation:
  • Talks
  • Lightning talks
  • Demonstrations
Submission of a full paper may result in a talk, submission of an abstract may result in a lightning talk or a demonstration. Presenters of full papers will be given a 20-minute time slot (plus 5 minutes for questions) to provide a summary and update to their work. Presenters of abstracts will be given a 10-minute time slot (including 3 minutes for questions).

All contributions will be subject to standard peer review on quality, relevance and novelty, which will decide acceptance and form of presentation. All submissions will be held in confidentiality prior to publication in the proceedings. Full papers must not exceed six A4 pages and must be written in clear and readable English. Abstracts must not exceed 500 words and may include a diagram. They should also be written in clear, readable English. Authors of abstracts should put the word “Abstract:” in the title.
