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.
We request a submission of 2-4 pages for any of the above participation options (except posters). Further details about each type of submission are on our website. Those whose papers are accepted for presentation at the conference will also have the option to submit a full paper (8-14 pages; journal to be determined) at a later date.
A new feature this year is the option to suggest an “Open Space” topic for lunchtime. More details will follow.
Deadline for all participation options (except posters): Monday, June 5
Poster session deadline: Friday, September 8
