TimeMonday, July 291:30pm - 5pm
DescriptionThis half-day tutorial will build on XSEDE14, XSEDE15, XSEDE16, and PEARC17 tutorials. Extensive tutorial material for this tutorial is available from

Science gateways provide science-specific user interfaces for scientific applications for end users who are unfamiliar with or need more capabilities than provided by command-line interfaces. Science gateway middleware provides the general purpose capabilities behind gateway user interfaces. In this tutorial, we present the Apache Airavata middleware for creating science gateways. The target audiences for this tutorial include a) scientific software developers, who want simplified ways to deliver their software and support larger user communities; b) educators, who want to integrate scientific software usage into their classroom without having students get bogged down in the submission mechanisms of specific resources; and c) campus computing center staff, who want to use gateways to broaden their reach beyond their traditional users and to help users make more efficient use of resources.

The format will be a mixture of presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on sessions, as described in the detailed agenda. The agenda indicates the roles of each of the organizers.
