This tutorial will introduce Science Gateways as a way to expand the usefulness of advanced cyber infrastructure in support of e-Science and Virtual Organizations, using Science Gateways for the U.S. TeraGrid as examples. This tutorial will include hands-on exercises and guided examples. This tutorial will:

  • Provide examples of several Science Gateways and Web Portals useful in support of e-Science, created by many participants and users of the U.S. TeraGrid
  • Present information about how to create Science Gateways using the Open Grid Computing Environment
  • Provide an overview of the U.S. TeraGrid and its resources that provide potential backends for Science Gateways
  • For U.S. participants, or international participants looking for U.S. collaborators, we will briefly present information on how to apply for and receive allocations of TeraGrid resources for hosting Science Gateways

Participants will have hands-on activities using the LEAD (Linked Environments for Atmospheric Discovery) Science Gateway to predict weather.

Date and Time

Sunday, December 7, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.
