The IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) is an international forum within the IEEE and IEEE Computer Society fostering research and education in scalable computing.

The Technical Area on Science Gateways aims at improving the state of research and education in scalable computing through the following goals:

  • Sponsoring upcoming and prominent conferences and workshops in the scope of science gateways

  • Outreach to various researchers within the context of science gateways

  • Providing information about projects and publications on science gateways

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 (DCIs). Science gateways offer the potential to open the utilization of DCIs to wider audiences by providing a customized and intuitive user interface to access large computational and data resources. The complexity of the underlying infrastructure can be completely hidden from the users by a suitably tailored interface. As interest in science gateways has accelerated in the past few years, an increasing number of new user communities can utilize HPC, grid or cloud computing resources in a convenient manner.
