Gateways 2020 Call for Participation

Gateways 2020 Call for Participation
Oct 19, 2020 - Oct 21, 2020


Call for Participation: Gateways 2020 (October 19–21, Bethesda, Maryland) is now accepting submissions of short papers, demos, panels, tutorials, and workshops on the topic of gateways for science, engineering, or other disciplines.

What’s a gateway? Gateways are user-friendly interfaces to computing, data, instruments, and other domain-specific resources to support research and education. They may also be known as portals, virtual research environments, eScience, virtual labs, eResearch, digital repositories, or research cyberinfrastructure.

Popular topics include:
  • Gateway design, use, impact, development processes, sustainability, or best practices
  • Educational topics (tutorials, demos) directed toward the next generation of gateway creators as well as gateways used for education
  • Any other aspect interesting to fellow gateway creators or users, such as emerging capabilities, approaches or technologies
Learning Labs (impromptu group discussions and gatherings) will also be welcoming early submissions as well as on-site proposed topics.

  • Tutorials and Workshops: April 28 (new deadline to accommodate COVID-19 interruptions)
  • Short Papers, Demos, and Panels: May 11
  • Posters (open to all attendees): September 11

Because the COVID-19 outbreak is changing rapidly, we are continuing to plan our October conference while monitoring the situation. In case we have to cancel, we will strive to offer an alternative format, and peer-reviewed, accepted submissions would still be published in the Gateways 2020 Proceedings. Questions, concerns, and suggestions may be sent to
