Call for Participation for Science Gateways 2024 Annual Conference

Gateways 2024 will take place Tuesday, October 8 – Thursday, October 10, 2024 at the Best Western Plus GranTree Inn in Bozeman, MT. Tutorials will take place in the two weeks before the conference online. Science gateways are end-to-end solutions with easy-to-use interfaces enabling the application of complex research infrastructures such as computing and data infrastructures, instruments, and other domain-specific resources to support research and education. Science Gateways are also called research portals, virtual research environments, eScience, virtual labs, eResearch, digital repositories, or research cyberinfrastructure. Gateways 2024 is an opportunity for users, developers and providers to showcase their science gateways accommodating teaching, empowering and engaging research, and providing technologies to various communities. It will also offer diverse options for sharing and publishing work and networking in the community. The format includes tutorial sessions, presentations, panels, posters, demos, and a BYOP: Bring Your Own Portal. Being that Bozeman is in the big sky country, we want to focus on the theme of expanding the horizons of science gateways to include new communities and new fields. We welcome a wide variety of topics, as listed below. In your submissions, we invite you to consider how we can build bridges within the gateways community, between science and cyberinfrastructure, between academia and industry, and between gateways and the larger public. Full Call for Participation available at: https://sciencegateways.org/gateways2024-cfp We invite the submission of papers and abstracts related to science gateways. All contributions will be subject to standard peer review on quality and relevance. This will apply to tutorial sessions, papers, panels, posters, demos, and BYOP (Bring Your Own Portal). Tutorial sessions, papers, panels, posters, and demos will be published openly accessible in Zenodo. Please note that authors of papers will be invited to submit an extended and updated version of their paper for a special issue journal on science gateways.
