This two day workshop offers participants the opportunity to engage with other members of the Science Gateways community, to explore common issues and share successes.
A Science Gateway is a community-developed set of tools, applications, and data collections that are integrated through a tailored web-based environment. Often Science Gateways leverage larger scale computing and data storage facilities that would otherwise be inaccessible to many domain scientists. Gateways can be used to tackle common scientific goals, engage with industry, and offer resources for educating students and informing non-experts.
To continue the development of this community, this workshop offers a venue for knowledge exchange and skills development. Australian science gateways evidence many valuable impacts for their research communities, including collaboration with international gateways in their field. The significance of science gateways programs is evidenced in the existence of a range of national/regional programs that facilitate development of science gateways.
The submission closing date for IWSG-A is 30 June 2017. All submissions will be double-blind peer reviewed and evaluated on quality and relevance.
