14th International Workshop on Science Gateways

June 15 - June 17

Science gateways are a community-specific set of tools, applications, and data collections that are integrated together via a web portal or a desktop application, providing access to resources and services of distributed computing infrastructures. The triumvirate of technologies,“ Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the hybridlate Cloud (Cloud, Fog, Edge), complemented with modern software engineering practices, stimulates the emergence of new approaches to Science Gateways. Blockchain and Smart Contracts could also be instrumental in this respect as they may facilitate decentralised, standards and market driven aggregation of data and computing resources, which are needed for scientific work. These technologies may also be useful for the development of new Virtual Research Environments and Virtual Labs.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers and scientists from different scientific domains, along with science gateways developers, to discuss problems and solutions in the area, to identify new issues, to shape future directions for research, foster the exchange of ideas, standards and common requirements and push towards the wider adoption of science gateways in eScience.
We invite the submission of papers related to various aspects of Science Gateways. 

We invite the submission of papers related to Science Gateways. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  •  Architectures, frameworks and technologies for science gateways
  • Science gateways sustaining productive collaborative communities
  • Support for scalability and data-driven methods in science gateways
  • Improving the reproducibility of science in science gateways
  • Science gateway usability, portals, workflows and tools
  • Software engineering approaches for scientific work
  • Aspects of science gateways, such as security and stability
  • Demonstrations/success stories

There are three alternatives for researchers to present their work: talks, lightning talks, and demonstration sessions. Submission of a full paper may result in a talk, submission of an abstract may result in a lightning talk or a demonstration. 

Accepted full papers will be published at CEUR Workshop Proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org/).
Accepted abstracts will be published online on the IWSG webpage.

Furthermore, authors of best papers will be invited to submit a significantly extended and updated version of their paper to a special issue on science gateways in a journal (applications in preparation) and will be jointly organized with the US Gateways Conference.

Important dates:

  • The deadline for paper/abstract submission: March 22, 2022 (new!)
  • Notification of acceptance: April 15,  2022
  • Submission of camera ready papers/abstracts: May 1, 2022
