Submissions to Gateways 2016
The 11th Gateway Computing Environments Conference (formerly GCE), Wednesday & Thursday, November 2 & 3, 2016 Hosted at the San Diego Supercomputer Center in San Diego, California

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 newly expanded Gateways annual conference will be an opportunity for gateway creators and enthusiasts to learn, share, connect, and shape the future of gateways while forming a vibrant community with common interests.

We welcome the submission of many presentation formats on the topic of science or engineering gateways. Topics 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.

Participation options:

* Extended abstract

* Panel

* Demo

* Tutorial

* Student-focused program

* Poster session

We request a submission of no more than 2 pages for any of the above participation options. Further details about each type of submission are on our website. Those whose extended abstracts are accepted for presentation at the conference will also have the option to submit a full paper (9-12 pages; journal to be determined) at a later date.

Poster session deadline: October (to be announced)
