Gateways 2021

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 - Thursday, October 21, 2021

This event will be held remotely.

Gateways 2021 is planned as an opportunity to influence the vision and mission of the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI), the gateways community, and the Gateways Conference series. It will offer diverse options for sharing work and networking in the community. The format includes tutorial sessions, panels, presentations in the form of lightning talks, and working sessions.

What you’ll get from our program:

  • Tutorial sessions where you can gain in-depth expertise on specific topics
  • Sessions, panels, and working groups for community planning and to identify needs: What services should SGCI offer? What should the conference look like in the future? What type of community interactions should we foster?
  • A session on the vision for science gateways in the next 10 years and how to broaden outreach and bridge gaps
  • A session for short talks on topics contributed by the community
  • Opportunities to grow your network by meeting people in the community who are users, developers, or providers of gateways

Registration for Gateways 2021 will be FREE.
