Science Gateway Development

Science gateways are conduits for bringing HPC to the web. NERSC assists in the development and hosting of gateways that make NERSC compute and data resources more broadly useful. To ease the development of these gateways, the NERSC Web Toolkit (NEWT) makes science gateways accessible to anyone familiar with HTML and javascript. You can find more detailed information about science gateway development in the related NERSC user documentation and at the NEWT website.

What are some use cases? A science gateway can be tailored to the needs within a team of researchers allowing them to share data, simulation results, and information among users who may be geographically distributed. Likewise a science gateway can provide a community resource through web-based data services built around important data sets or computational results.
