Tutorial: XSEDE New User Tutorial: Using Science Gateways

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The purpose of this tutorial is to supplement the standard XSEDE new user tutorial with overviews of how to use science gateways so that the new users can start using XSEDE for scientific research right away, at the conference, and continue at their home institution, without getting bogged down in the allocation process at the beginning. The target audience members are scientists in particular domains (chemistry, neuroscience, atmospheric science) who are new to XSEDE and who optionally are familiar with common software packages in their field, but who do not have deep experience with using supercomputers and clusters. The tutorial will provide a brief overview of XSEDE and the gateway program, including a list of other available gateways not covered by the tutorial. The bulk of the tutorial will be a sequence of hands-on activities for domain specific gateways. The tutorial organizers will work with XSEDE conference organizers and the outreach team to recruit new user attendees from the selected domains.
Attendees will not need to be researchers in a specific science domain to participate in a specific gateway exercise. The organizers will provide all required input files and data for the exercises. Attendees will be encouraged to work with gateway providers on their specific research problems. Each hands on session will demonstrate how to create an account on the science gateway; how to create, submit, and monitor a submission of a specific application code; and how to retrieve final results. Each session will also include a feedback opportunity to help new users understand the additional capabilities of each gateway and optionally try out attendee-provided input data.
