International Workshop on Science Gateways - Australia

Agenda and Abstracts Available

Monday 10 October 2016, Melbourne, Australia

In conjunction with eResearch Australasia


This workshops offers participants the opportunity to engage with other members of the Science Gateways community, to explore common issues and share successes.

A Science Gateway is a community-developed set of tools, applications, and data collections that are integrated through a tailored web-based environment. Often Science Gateways leverage larger scale computing and data storage facilities that would otherwise be inaccessible to many domain scientists. Gateways can be used to tackle common scientific goals, engage with industry, and offer resources for educating students and informing non-experts. To continue the development of this community, this workshop offers a venue for knowledge exchange and skills development.

Australia has invested heavily in the development of science gateways, particularly through the NeCTAR Virtual Laboratory program and major domain-specific projects such as AURIN, TERN and IMOS, amongst many others. Australian science gateways evidence many valuable impacts for their research communities, including collaboration with international gateways in their field. The significance of science gateways programs is evidenced in the existence of a range of national/regional programs that facilitate development of science gateways.

About the Workshop

The International Workshop on Science Gateways series focuses on research contributions for science gateways and tools in different research fields. It brings together members of the science gateway community from many fields and disciplines, providing an international platform to exchange experience, formulate ideas, and share technological advances in the context of science gateways.

This will be an interactive forum, including lightning talks and roundtables to discuss and share common issues and experiences. This workshop builds on the successful Science Gateways series of workshops conducted for nearly ten years in USA and Europe.

* World Cafe Based on the World Cafe Method, the room is divided into up to four stations with each presenter remaining at one station throughout the session. The audience divide themselves between the stations.  The different talks are given simultaneously at the stations including any discussion/questions. After a set period of time the audience move to a different station where the same talk is repeated. Discussion and interaction during and/or after the talk is encouraged. This also allows a greater number of talks in a limited time with attendees able to choose the talks they prefer.

Registration is via eResearch Australasia: https://conference.eresearch.edu.au/eres2016/registration/ 

Call for Papers – closed 5 June 2016

Submissions are invited related to various aspects of science gateways.  Suggested topics include:
  • Success metrics and approaches to sustainability
  • Ready to use science gateways in different areas and disciplines
  • Gateways in use by industry
  • Enabling technologies and development frameworks
  • Approach to reproducibiity and provenance
  • Workflows and service composition in science gateways
  • Integration of software sustainability principles
  • Portal technology and portal construction methods
  • Usability studies or survey papers on user engagement
  • Integration of scientific instruments
  • Interfaces to cloud computing resources
  • Scaling gateways across large scale Cloud and data storage systems
  • Gateways and mobile applications
  • Successful use of collaborative tools and social media

There are two alternatives for researchers to present their work: lightning talks and demonstration sessions. All submissions will be double-blind peer reviewed and evaluated on quality and relevance.

Lightning talk or demonstration - Abstracts of 300 words . Accepted lightning talk or demonstration submissions will be given up to 10 minutes. Selected talks will be invited to submit extended papers that will be considered for a special journal issue of Concurrency and Computation – Practice and Experience.


Submission dates are the same as for the eResearch Australasia conference, and closed on 5 June 2016.


Please follow these steps to make a submission to the conference:


1. Download the submission template.

2. Complete your abstract as per the instructions on the templates. Abstracts are 300 words maximum. Submissions should be saved in a PDF format.
