1 Science Gateways What are they and why are they having such a tremendous impact on science? Nancy Wilkins- Diehr

2 What is a science gateway? science gateway /sī əәns gāt wā / n. 1. an online community space for science and engineering research and education. 2. a Web-based resource for accessing data, software, computing services, and equipment specific to the needs of a science or engineering discipline.

3 Gateways: A natural result of the impact of the Internet on worldwide communication and information retrieval Less than 25 years since the release of Mosaic! Implica9ons for the conduct of science con9nue to evolve 1980 s, Early gateways, Na9onal Center for Biotechnology Informa9on BLAST server, search results sent by , s9ll a working portal today 1989 World Wide Web developed at CERN 1992 Mosaic web browser developed 1995 Interna9onal Protein Data Bank Enhanced by Computer Browser 2004 TeraGrid project director Rick Stevens recognized growth in scien9fic portal development and proposed the Science Gateway Program Today, science gateways are pervasive 29,000 person survey indicates wide use and wide par9cipa9on in development in the research community Explosion of digital data makes gateways a necessity Growing analysis needs in many, many scien9fic areas Sensors, telescopes, satellites, digital images, video, genome sequencers Exponen9al growth in compu9ng simula9ons As the Web grows more capable, it is increasingly important to science

4 vt100 in the 1980s and a login window on Gordon today

5 More users access supercomputers via gateways than from the command line in ,500 3,000 2,500 2,000 Ac9ve users NSF XSEDE users Gateway users 2,984 2,398 1,500 1, This is also true at NERSC Many other gateways taking off with hundreds of thousands of users (HUBzero, Galaxy, materialsproject.org, more)

6 Proliferation of Science Gateways These use XSEDE

7 Cyberinfrastructure for Phylogenetic Research (CIPRES) Most popular science gateway in XSEDE ~40% of all XSEDE users In use on 6 con9nents Cited in major journals (Cell, Nature, PNAS) Used at major research ins9tu9ons (Stanford, Harvard, Yale) Used by ~60 researchers for curriculum delivery Supports hundreds of publica9ons every year Used in 80% of EPSCoR states Used by a 15- year- old high school student who won the Massachusegs state science fair with no support from SDSC staff

8 Gateways changing the face of scholarship To me this is the essence of a research university, but now this is a global university. It is not just Purdue, or the people in my group, or the people that run nanohub, it's really more than 1,000 content contributors and 380 tool developers, most of whom are volunteers that have contributed to the hundreds of tools. Gerhard Klimeck A former student of mine published eight tools on nanohub, serving over 6,000 people with his tools. He then joined a university as a professor and introduced nanohub. Use of the gateway from that university skyrocketed; he used nanohub in exisdng classes, created new classes, and infused it in his research. Ul9mately, the professor s department head associates his two- year rise to tenure with the notoriety and innova9on he gained through nanohub.

9 But uncertain funding disrupts the effectiveness of gateways Typical 3-year research funding cycle New project Early prototype adopters Scien9sts disillusioned Publicity Funding ends Wider adop9on Gateways enable research, but are not research projects themselves

10 Science Gateways Institute 2012 NSF Software Institute conceptualization award 2015 NSF Software Institute implementation proposal ($15M) Are you building websites that serve your science discipline? Do you wish you could connect with and learn from others who are doing the same thing? We are building an institute to serve you and others like you with resources, services, experts, and ideas for creating and sustaining science gateways. Sign up to join the conversation: volunteer/ science gateway /sī əәns gāt wā / n. 1. an online community space for science and engineering research and education. 2. a Web-based resource for accessing data, software, computing services, and equipment specific to the needs of a science or engineering discipline.

11 Millions of dollars are spent on gateways, but developers face several challenges They o7en work in isola:on even though development can be quite similar across domain areas They bridge cyberinfrastructure locally, campus- wide, na9onally, and some9mes interna9onally They need founda:onal building blocks so they can focus on higher- level, grand- challenge func9onality They struggle to secure sustainable funding because gateways span the worlds of research and infrastructure The goal of the ins9tute would be to provide coordina9ng ac9vi9es across the Na9onal Science Founda9on, offering several services and resources to support the gateway development community: An incubator service offering consulta9on and documenta9on about business planning and solware development. An extended support team to build gateways and share their exper9se. A forum to connect members of the development community. A modular, layered framework that supports community contribu9ons and allows developers to choose components. Workforce development to help train the next genera9on for careers in this cross- disciplinary area. Sharing exper9se about technologies and strategies would allow developers to concentrate on the novel, challenging, and cumng- edge development needed by their specific user communi9es
