Deploying Science Gateways with Apache Airavata
Limit: 50 participants

The authors present the Apache Airavata framework for deploying science gateways, illustrating how to request, administer, modify, and extend a basic gateway tenant to the middleware.

Science gateways provide science-specific user interfaces to scientific applications and data for end users who are unfamiliar with or need more capabilities than provided by command-line interfaces. Frameworks for science gateway provide software that can be used to create science gateways, but these still must be operated and maintained by the gateway provider. Hosted solutions for science gateways are based on frameworks and provide configurable science gateway tenants that can be managed without the gateway provider needing to install and operate any science gateway software, removing the burden of operating a production gateway from the gateway provider.

This tutorial provides an overview of the Apache Airavata software framework for science gateways and focuses on how to request, configure, manage, and customize a tenant gateway on SciGaP.org, the hosted version of Apache Airavata operated by the Cyberinfrastructure Integration Research Center (https://circ.iu.edu) at Indiana University.

  • Audience: Anyone interested in the topic is welcome to attend. Participants will benefit from prior general knowledge of how to execute scientific applications on HPC and Cloud environments, but this is not required. 
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Prerequisite Knowledge: Familiarity with Python, basics of web development, basics of running scientific applications on clusters are required for the hands-on exercises. All interested participants are welcome. Familiarity with Python, Linux, and basics of Web programming will help with the hands-on exercises but are not required. Attendees will be provided with a sample hosted Django tenant to SciGaP services and will have access to a virtual cluster on XSEDE’s Jetstream with pre-installed applications.
  • Technology Requirements and Setup: See https://apache-airavata-django-portal.readthedocs.io/en/latest/tutorial/gateways_tutorial/

How to Build and Engage with Your Community
Community engagement is one of the cornerstones of successful science gateways. The approach “If I build it, they will come” seldom works for science gateways - user-driven design and development, close collaboration with the user community offering support measures as well as outreach from the beginning of a project are some of the measures to build and grow a community for a science gateway. An active and growing community contributes to its sustainability and, thus, to a sustainable software life cycle. The goal is to enhance computational solutions instead of starting for every project from scratch or reinventing the wheel. Typically, the principal investigators (PIs) leading the creation of science gateways and gateway creators are domain experts or research computing specialists and not community engagement specialists.
This 3-hour tutorial will introduce success stories especially in the community engagement area and their specific outreach measures and strategies. The hands-on sessions will give the participants the ability to discuss and work through exercises for their own projects and science gateways and/or examples given in advance. Exercises include (i) elevator pitches about a science gateway to different target audiences: from the user community to stakeholders to anticipated partners in the project; (ii) communication exercises for meetings assuming participants from diverse backgrounds and knowledge; (iii) BrainTrust exercises in working groups where participants can present or discuss a specific challenge they face in their project or science gateway related to community engagement. The exercises are inspired by SGCI’s successful Focus Week (Science Gateways Community Institute) and the successful series of Virtual Residency workshops led by Oklahoma University.

  • Audience: Participants of any skill level may attend the tutorial and there are no technical or software requirements.

DataAtRisk.org Workshop
Limit: 50 participants

The DataAtRisk.org Workshop will introduce participants to the NSF Science Gateways project: DataAtRisk.org through hands-on activities with data that is actually at risk. Workshop leaders will introduce the DataAtRisk.org platform, a data help desk for nominating data assets for in-depth data curation, and guide two tracks of data curation activities to highlight different user roles (Advocates and Heros).

DataAtRisk.org responds to the clear need for a community-building application by connecting data in need to data expertise and resources. Data owners, managers, or others nominate assets for targeted preservation action by data management experts and volunteers, and create a community of Data Heroes who ensure the longevity of data products essential to high quality research.

DataAtRisk.org is a web platform that creates and leverages a commons-based approach to data stewardship and preservation. Fundamentally a networking tool that connects users with data in need to data stewardship experts, DataAtRisk.org allows users to nominate or identify threatened data with substantial research value for a team of volunteers to evaluate, curate, and deposit in appropriate data repositories. This workshop will be split into two tracks according to the design of the DataAtRisk.org system: one for participants to evaluate datasets for curation requirements and another for participants to work in groups to execute pre-identified curation “tasks.”
  • Audience: The DataAtRisk.org Workshop is suitable for participants with any level of data curation skills, including those new to the topic.
  • Technology Requirements: Participants will not require any additional equipment or setup beyond a computer and internet access.

Open OnDemand, XDMoD, and ColdFront: an HPC center management toolset
The University at Buffalo Center for Computational Research (UB CCR) and Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) team up to offer HPC systems personnel a step-by-step tutorial for installing, configuring and using what many centers now consider vital software products for managing and enabling access to their resources. UB CCR offers two open source products - an allocations management system, ColdFront, and an HPC metrics & data analytics tool, XDMoD. OSC provides the open source Open OnDemand portal for easy, seamless web-based access for users to HPC resources. These three tools have been designed to work together to provide a full package of HPC center management and access products. In this tutorial the system administrators and software developers from OSC and UB CCR will provide an overview of the installation and configuration of each of these software packages. We’ll show how to use these three products in conjunction with each other and the Slurm job scheduler.

We will begin the tutorial with a short overview of each software product and how they tie together to provide seamless management of an HPC center. We’ll spend the first half focusing on ColdFront and XDMoD. The second half will be spent on OnDemand including a demonstration of configuring interactive apps for use on the cluster. We’ll end with instructions on how to tie together XDMoD with OnDemand for access to job metrics within OnDemand. Due to the pace of this workshop, we do not anticipate attendees will be able to follow along step-by-step. We will provide a full Docker cluster-in-a-container environment with instructions for attendees to complete outside of the workshop. In addition to this, we will offer post-workshop Zoom sessions and Slack channels for each of the three software products so attendees can ask specific questions of the individual development teams.
  • Audience: Target audience is HPC system administrators and user support personnel. 
  • Skill level: No experience necessary for presentation portion of tutorial. Intermediate experience recommended for utilizing the Docker cluster-in-a-container environment.
  • Prerequisites: An understanding of HPC clusters and batch scheduling is highly recommended. Docker experience is helpful, but not required for using the toolset environment provided.
  • Technology Requirements:  Only a connection to Zoom is required (provided through the QiqoChat conference platform). However, to utilize the HPC toolset cluster-in-a-container provided as part of the tutorial, users will need to install Docker and any prerequisites.

Secure Coding Practices & Automated Assessment Tools
Limit: 30 participants

High performance computing increasingly involves the development and deployment of network and cloud services to access resources for computation, communication, data, instruments, and analytics. Unique to the HPC field is the large amount of software that we develop to drive these services. These services must assure data integrity and availability, while providing access to a global scientific and engineering community.
Securing your network is not enough. Every service that you deploy is a window into your data center from the outside world, and a window that could be exploited by an attacker.

This tutorial is relevant to anyone wanting to learn about minimizing security flaws in the software they develop or manage. We share our experiences gained from performing vulnerability assessments of critical middleware. You will learn skills critical for software developers and analysts concerned with security.

Software assurance tools – tools that scan the source or binary code of a program to find weaknesses – are the first line of defense in assessing the security of a software project. These tools can catch flaws in a program that affect both the correctness and safety of the code. This tutorial is also relevant to anyone wanting to learn how to use these automated assessment tools to minimize security flaws in the software they develop or manage.
  • Audience: This tutorial is targeted at developers wishing to minimize the security flaws in the software that they develop. The target audience for this tutorial is anyone involved with the development, deployment, assessment, or management of critical software.
  • Skill level: 50% beginner, 25% intermediate, 25% advanced
  • Prerequisites: To gain maximum benefit from this tutorial, attendees should be familiar with the process of developing software and at least one of the Java, C, C++ or scripting programming languages. This tutorial does not assume any prior knowledge of security assessment or vulnerabilities.
  • Advance Setup: This tutorial includes hands-on exercises, and a few steps can help you prepare for it. In https://www.cs.wisc.edu/mist/tutorial-instructions.pdf, you can find the instructions for downloading the virtual machine image we'll use for the hands-on exercises. Please follow those instructions, and feel free to contact elisa@cs.wisc.edu if you have any questions or issues.

A Deep Dive into Constructing Containers for Scientific Computing and Gateways (Part 1 of 2)
NOTE: This is a 2-part tutorial on Thursday and Friday.

In recent years, using containers has been rapidly gaining traction as a solution to lower the barriers to using more software on HPC and cloud resources. However, significant barriers still exist to actually doing this in practice, particularly for well-established community codes which expect to run on a particular operating system version or resource. Additional barriers exist for researchers unfamiliar with containerization technologies. While many beginner tutorials are available for building containers, they often stop short of covering the complexities that can arise when containerizing scientific computing software. The goal of this tutorial is to demonstrate and work through building and running non-trivial containers with users. We will containerize community scientific software, exhibit how to share with the larger community via a container registry, and then run on a completely separate HPC resource, with and without the use of a Science Gateway. The subject matter will be approachable for intermediate to advanced users, and is expected to be of interest to a diverse audience including researchers, support staff, and teams building science gateways.
  • Audience: Gateway developers, Researchers (grad students, faculty, etc.), XSEDE Campus Champions/ACI-Ref Facilitators, Campus research computing staff. Participants do not need to be experts, but a basic comfort level with opening, editing, and saving files in a command-line environment is expected.
  • Skill level: Intermediate and Advanced users. The tutorial will be about 60-70% hands-on content. It will make use of several virtual machines (instances) on the Jetstream cloud; participants registered for the tutorial WITH the training account will have access to a development/build machine for creating new container images, a separate instance running a container registry to store the images, and a virtual HPC cluster for actually running jobs using their containerized software.
  • Prerequisites: Basic Linux knowledge (especially command-line), text editor skills (vi/vim, emacs, or nano), basic HPC concepts knowledge a plus.
  • Technology Requirements: Computer with browser, Terminal application with ssh and ability to copy-paste, and knowledge of a command-line text editor such as vi/vim, emacs, or nano.

A1: SWATShare: A Collaborative Cyberinfrastructure for Hydrologic Research and Education Using SWAT Model
The complexity of studying hydrological processes using Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) has led to the development of SWATShare, a SWAT model sharing, execution, and visualization platform aiming at addressing the challenges of time-consuming SWAT model data collection and computation intensive modeling runs. SWATShare is an interactive web-based environment for research and education using SWAT. Scientists can share their models online or reuse SWAT models shared by others. Through SWATShare three types of SWAT simulations (regular simulation, sensitivity analysis, and auto-calibration) can run using high performance computing resources at SDSC and Purdue. Spatial and temporal plots may be dynamically generated using model outputs. SWATShare has been used to teach students how to apply SWAT models for simulating watershed hydrology to study the impact of land use and climate in several classroom settings. In this demo, we will demonstrate the key features of the SWATShare system including discovering and sharing models, submitting and analyzing simulations, and creating spatial and temporal visualization.

B1: net.science: A Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Innovation in Network Science and Engineering
Networks have entered the mainstream lexicon over the last ten years. This coincides with the pervasive use of networks in a host of disciplines of interest to industry and academia, including biology, neurology, genomics, psychology, social sciences, economics, psychology, and cyber-physical systems and infrastructure. Several dozen journals and conferences regularly contain articles related to networks. Yet, there are no general-purpose cyberinfrastructures (CI) that can be used across these varied disciplines and domains. Furthermore, while there are scientific gateways that include some network science capabilities for particular domains (e.g., biochemistry, genetics), there are no general-purpose network-based scientific gateways. In this work, we introduce net.science, a CI for Network Science and Engineering, that is designed to be a community resource. This paper provides an overview of net.science, addressing key requirements and concepts, CI components, the types of applications that our CI will support, and various dimensions of our evaluation process.

A2: Land Model Testbed: Accelerating Development, Benchmarking and Analysis of Land Surface Models
A Land Model Testbed (LMT), designed to provide a computational framework for systematically assessing model fidelity and supporting rapid development of complex multiscale models, offers a general-purpose workflow for conducting large ensemble simulations of multiple land surface models, post-processing large volumes of model output, and evaluating model results. It leverages existing tools for launching model simulations and the International Land Model Benchmarking (ILAMB) package for assessing model fidelity through comparison with best-available observational datasets. Increased complexity and proliferation of uncertain parameters in process representations in land surface models has driven the need for frequent and intensive testing and evaluating of models to quantify uncertainties and optimize parameters such that results are consistent with observations. The LMT described here meets these needs by providing tools to run thousands of ensemble simulations simultaneously and post-process their output files, by automating execution of an enhanced version of ILAMB with site-specific benchmarks and multivariate functional relationships, and by offering ensemble diagnostics and a customizable dashboard for displaying model performance metrics and associated graphics. We envision the LMT capabilities will serve as a foundational computational resource for a proposed user facility focused on terrestrial multiscale model-data integration.

B2: "Bring-your-own” Plug-in Management Middleware for Programmable Science Gateways
There is a growing need for next-generation science gateways to increase the accessibility of data sets and cloud computing resources using latest technologies. Most science gateways today are built for specific purposes with pre-defined workflows, user interfaces, and fixed computing resources. There is a need to modernize them with middleware that can provide `plug in' support to programmatically increase their extensibility and scalability to meet users' growing needs. In this paper, we propose a novel middleware that can be integrated into science gateways using a ``bring-your-own'' plug-in management approach. This approach features microservice architectures to decouple applications, and allows users to customize and incorporate domain-specific components to an existing science gateway. We detail the application programming interfaces in our middleware for creation of end-to-end pipelines with diverse infrastructure, customized processes, detailed monitoring and flexible programmability for a scientific domain. We also demonstrate via a OnTimeRecommend case study on how our ``bring-your-own'' approach can be seamlessly integrated by a science gateway administrator/developer using a web application.

A3: IsoMAP - A Science Gateway for Isotopic Landscape Modeling
Stable isotopic landscape (aka isoscape [1]) modeling brings new insights into the study of a wide array of research questions in multiple disciplines. However, the adoption of isoscape modeling has been hindered by the obstacles individual researchers face in collecting, compiling, and integrating heterogeneous environmental and isotopic data over large spatial and temporal scales and in developing and interpreting geostatistical models. To help address these challenges, we developed IsoMAP (http://isomap.org/), a science gateway for online isoscape modeling, analysis and prediction. IsoMAP accesses and integrates a number of diverse datasets and enable users to develop isoscape models over selected spatial and temporal domains using geostatistical algorithms, predict maps for the stable isotopic ratios of water and plants, and associate a sample’s isotope value with its most likely geographic origin. Up until now, there are more than 2400 registered users who have run around 14,000 simulations in the IsoMAP gateway. In this demo, we will demonstrate how researchers can use the IsoMAP gateway to develop isoscape models, run the developed models to generate map predictions for H and O isotopes in precipitation water and plant water, and map a sample’s origin.

B3: Improving Science Gateway Monitoring, Caveats and Goals
The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) has invested heavily in research computing, including funding the eXtreme Digital (XD) program, to make computing infrastructure available to researchers, and sponsoring the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI), to support the integration of supercomputers with science gateways. XD Metrics on Demand (XDMoD), an NSF-funded tool that collects and presents detailed data about computing resources, was developed to manage just such varied computational resources. XDMoD metrics describe accounting and performance data for computational jobs, including resources consumed (computation, memory, disk, network, etc.), wait times, and quality of service. XDMoD is used to provide the NSF innovative HPC resources (XSEDE) with this information. In recent years, XDMoD has been enhanced to provide monitoring for cloud computing and storage, and metrics such as power consumption and GPU support. As the use of science gateways becomes more prominent in research computing, the influence of these user-friendly portals grows.New features under development now in XDMoD will serve the gateways community. In this short paper, we outline our plans to introduce new gateways monitoring functionality that integrates with existing monitoring and metrics.

C1: GeoEDF: A Plug-and-play Workflow Framework for Earth Science Research
Typical earth science research often involves a complex workflow of data acquisition from various remote data sources, followed by preprocessing, data preparation and fusion, and finally, simulation or analysis and validation. Several science gateways now provide dedicated data management, visualization, and processing capabilities for the kinds of geospatial data that is utilized in most earth science research. Despite the transformative impact that such gateways have had in these domains, in practice earth science research workflows still involve a mix of custom-built, non-reusable code, desktop tools, and intermediate data transfers to and from the gateway. Researchers consequently end up spending inordinate amounts of time on data wrangling rather than focusing on actual science. GeoEDF is designed to address these inefficiencies by making remote datasets directly usable in computational code and facilitating earth science workflows that are based entirely in a science gateway. In this demo we will demonstrate the key elements of GeoEDF that enable declarative, end-to-end, “plug-and-play” workflows in the earth sciences as well as the integration of GeoEDF with an existing, production, geospatial science gateway.

The HUBzero® Hubdrive prototype is a research into the viability of decentralized and peer-to-peer (p2p) network systems for collaboration and the sharing of scientific research online. Decentralized systems do not solely rely on a central authority or client-server architecture tied to proprietary, governmental or institutional organizations but instead allow the community itself to share research, papers, data, and results freely. Such systems ensure that relevant cited research remains online and in control by the researchers.

C2: Geoweaver as a Gateway to Manage Distributed Geoscientific Workflows
Web-based computing techniques have come into favor as a necessary tool in studying our interacting geosystems. Modern geoscientific workflows require complex management of processing steps, disparate data formats, and distributed high performance computing resources. This complexity poses a huge challenge when it comes to full-stack workflow management, as researchers often use an assortment of time-intensive manual operations to manage their projects. Geoweaver aims to enable management of data, processes, resources, and workflows, in a single intuitive web interface. We propose a demonstration of the key features of this system as a powerful alternative for people to manage their distributed workflows that integrates scripts and datasets on multiple platforms.

D3: FAIR Data and SEAGrid Gateway a Research Data Alliance Adoption Project
The Science and Engineering Grid (SEAGrid) Gateway has been an active resource for the computational community since 2016. During this time the utility of persistent identifiers for research data products has become prevalent in research communities as defined in the FAIR principles for open data. At the beginning of 2020, the Research Data Alliance funded an adoption project to integrate RDA outputs and recommendations focused on PID issuance to data and software components that make up a science workflow within the SEAGrid environment. This short paper summarizes this project and describes the gateway and data infrastructure components required for integration along with the details of the integration process. The work done in this adoption project can be used to inform future gateway projects that adopt the technical components of FAIR which are reliant on a persistent identifier resolution infrastructure.

The Challenge of Gateway Interoperability: The SGCI Tech Summit
The Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) helps solve common challenges faced by the science gateways developer community. The SGCI Tech Summit, launched after the Gateways 2019 conference, consisting of individuals from a number of different institutions and gateway projects, identified gateway interoperability as one of the key challenges facing the community. The SGCI Tech Summit team began work on a project to provide uniform descriptions of cyberinfrastructure (CI) resources and applications. In this plenary session, the SGCI Tech Summit team will describe the high-level vision and goals for the Tech Summit, and the project members will update the community on the progress made so far. The session will conclude with a panel consisting of Tech Summit members and leaders from the science gateways community to share their experiences and challenges with gateway interoperability and ensure that the effort is successful.

A Learning Lab session will accompany this plenary presentation. We encourage those who are interested in this subject to consider joining the Learning Lab for further discussion of future steps and ways to participate.

F2: Interactive C++ code development using C++Explorer and GitHub Classroom for educational purposes
Teaching C++ programming to non-computer science majors comes with the burden of setting up an integrated development environment, a struggle for most students. Therefore, we present the open source tool, C++Explorer, a Jupyterhub deployment for interactively developing C++ code. Students can connect to the server without installing anything, and, almost instantly, they can begin to play with code using the notebooks. Another aspect of code development is remote communication with co-workers or the community. To develop this skill, we use GitHub classroom to provide feedback on the assignments and practice remote communication. C++Explorer was used in the fall of 2019 to teach parallel computation to mathematics students. At the end of the class, these students provided feedback through a survey. This data will be used to improve the next iteration of the course.

E3: Enabling Secure and Effective Biomedical Data Sharing through Cyberinfrastructure Gateways
Scientific cyberinfrastructures promise solutions to computational challenges with rich resources; they embrace collaborative workflows in which users can access and share scientific data and computing resources to perform research and education tasks, which catalyze scientific discovery. The Dynaswap project reports on developing a coherently integrated and trustworthy holistic secure workflow protection architecture for cyberinfrastructures which can be used on virtual machines deployed through cyberinfrastructure (CI) services such as JetStream. This service creates a user-friendly cloud environment designed to give researchers access to interactive computing and data analysis resources on demand. The Dynaswap cybersecurity architecture supports roles, role hierarchies, and data hierarchies, as well as dynamic changes of roles and hierarchical relations within the scientific infrastructure. Dynaswap combines existing cutting-edge security frameworks (including an Authentication Authorization-Accounting framework, Multi-Factor Authentication, Secure Digital Provenance, and Blockchain) with advanced security tools (e.g., Biometric-Capsule, Cryptography-based Hierarchical Access Control, and Dual-level Key Management). These are integrated to deliver a secure scientific infrastructure, which allows researchers, educators, practitioners, and students to remotely access and share sensitive data, computing resources, and workflows with flexibility and convenience while also having the highest security and privacy protection. The CI is being validated in life-science research environments and in the education settings of Health Informatics.

Similar challenges arise for healthcare professionals in light of their need to regularly communicate medical situations and concepts to patients and their families. We are developing SimpleB.io – http://simpleb.io – an online tool to break down these barriers in making biological/biomedical science and research findings broadly-accessible by: 1) providing a feature-rich text-editor that enables experts to simplify dense technical/scientific text, and 2) building a community of researchers, instructors, students, and the general public around science communication and learning.

Attracting and Retaining Gateway Users by Applying Usability and Accessibility Solutions
Not only do you need to attract users to your gateway, you need to make sure they stick around. Overlooking usability and accessibility is like building a storefront with a moat and no signage. Enter at your peril!

This presentation brings to life the importance and key concepts of usability and accessibility. SGCI's resident usability expert Paul Parsons will share a set of common usability problems identified from helping more than 30 gateways improve their usability. In parallel, Hiram Kuykendall, Chief Technology Officer of MicroAssist, will reveal top accessibility violations that should matter to every federally funded gateway. Together, they show how you can take steps towards making your gateway meet both best practices and standards. You'll walk away knowing how to get started with bridging the moat and hoisting the welcome banners!

Participants will leave with new tools. For their own projects, participants can use Paul's paper "Common Usability Problems and Solutions for Science Gateways" to apply usability solutions that are easy for non-experts to implement. They'll also receive an accessibility checklist from Hiram, featuring concepts and resources that can help a gateway address top accessibility issues.

Two hours after the end of this session, Hiram will offer a Learning Lab going more deeply into the accessibility evaluation resources available to gateways. Mark your calendar also for SGCI's November 11 webinar featuring Hiram's review of the ways that gateways should be adapting to accessibility standards, with a specific focus on the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) as a model.

G1: SACI - A Cloud Based Real Time Sensor Data Management and Analysis Platform
In this demo we will present SACI, a scalable and flexible sensor data collection and analysis platform. The main goal of this system is to aid sensor data researchers to easily collect, process, store, and access large volumes of heterogeneous sensor data collected in the field. It supports real time data ingestion and processing pipelines using an open source software stack including RabbitMQ, Docker, Node.js, MongoDB, and HUBzero. Data producers can easily register a new data source and automatically set up the data ingestion pipelines at the backend. The SACI system has been used to help plant phenotype researchers at Purdue to collect and process plant health sensor data. We will demo the main sensor workflow pipelines supported by SACI and how it has been applied to collect, manage, and visualize the plant health sensor data.

H1: A Serverless Gateway for the Execution of Open Machine Learning Models on AWS
Serverless computing has become a paradigm for the implementation and development of a wide range of applications based on events in the cloud. Today, with the rise of machine learning models and artificial intelligence applications, both cloud providers and large companies are focusing their efforts on offering these services to their customers. This article proposes a serverless computing platform to facilitate running tasks for inference using machine learning models on the AWS Cloud provider. The back-end grows elastically based on execution needs and features scale-to-zero features to minimize costs, while the front-end provides a simplified user experience to trigger the inference phase for machine learning models. The results demonstrate that the proposed solution constitutes a step forward on simplifying the Cloud-based execution of machine learning and artificial intelligence models.

G2: A Scalable Cloud-Based Analysis Platform for Survey Astronomy
Research in astronomy is undergoing a major paradigm shift, transformed by the advent of large, automated, sky-surveys into a data-rich field where multi-TB to PB-sized spatio-temporal data sets are commonplace. For example the Legacy Survey of Space and Time; LSST) is about to begin delivering observations of >10^10 objects, including a database with >4 x 10^13 rows of time series data. This volume presents a challenge: how should a domain-scientist with little experience in data management or distributed computing access data and perform analyses at PB-scale?

We present a possible solution to this problem built on (adapted) industry standard tools and made accessible through web gateways. We have i) developed Astronomy eXtensions for Spark, AXS, a series of astronomy-specific modifications to Apache Spark allowing astronomers to tap into its computational scalability ii) deployed datasets in AXS-queriable format in Amazon S3, leveraging its I/O scalability, iii) developed a deployment of Spark on Kubernetes with auto-scaling configurations requiring no end-user interaction, and iv) provided a Jupyter notebook, web-accessible, front-end via JupyterHub including a rich library of pre-installed common astronomical software (accessible at http://hub.dirac.institute).

We use this system to enable the analysis of data from the Zwicky Transient Facility, presently the closest precursor survey to the LSST, and discuss initial results. To our knowledge, this is a first application of cloud-based scalable analytics to astronomical datasets approaching LSST-scale. The code is available at https://github.com/astronomy-commons.

H2: Deploy Kubernetes and JupyterHub on XSEDE Jetstream
JupyterHub is a production-grade system delivered by the Jupyter team to provide Jupyter Notebooks to multiple users through a single web application. It handles authentication, spawns the Jupyter Notebook application for each users and takes care of proxying it back to the user.
JupyterHub provides access to remote computing resources and a custom software environment with the only requirement of a web browser and an internet connection.
It can be deployed for users of a Science Gateway, attendees of workshops or tutorials, students in classes or scientists in scientific collaborations.

Supplying enough computational resources for any non-trivial number of users requires a distributed setup, which quickly becomes a hurdle to configure and manage. The Jupyter team relies on Kubernetes to deploy JupyterHub at scale and provides a recipe to simplify the deployment on cloud providers named Zero-to-Jupyterhub.
The most suitable resource within XSEDE for this task is Jetstream, the Openstack deployment at Indiana University and Texas Advanced Computing Center, which offers many of the features that public cloud providers like Amazon and Google do.

In this paper we will present two different strategies to deploy Kubernetes on Jetstream, either using the kubespray tool or using the dedicated Openstack facility, Magnum.
Then we will show how to leverage the Zero-to-JupyterHub recipe to install JupyterHub, configure it and customize it further.

G3: A Gateway to Astronomical Image Processing: Rubin Observatory Science Pipelines on AWS
The Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST, www.lsst.org), operated by the Rubin Observatory, is a 10-year astronomical survey due to start operations in 2022 that will image half the sky every three nights. LSST will produce ~20TB of raw data per night which will be calibrated and analyzed in almost real time. Given the volume of LSST data, the traditional subset-download-process paradigm of data reprocessing faces significant challenges. We describe here a gateway for astronomical science that would enable astronomers to analyze images and catalogs at scale. In this first step we focus on executing the LSST's Science Pipelines, a collection of image and catalog processing algorithms, on Amazon Web Services (AWS) accessed through a Jupyter interface. We describe the performance, scalability and cost of deploying such a system in the cloud.

H3: Enabling Science with Functions-as-a-Service: New Features and Usage of the Abaco Platform
The Abaco Platform is an NSF funded project enabling researchers and developers to run containerized functions on infrastructure at the Texas Advanced Computing Center by making simple API calls over HTTP. Sometimes referred to as a “serverless” platform, Abaco reduces the administrative cost of research projects by eliminating the need to maintain infrastructure to run these workloads. Since its initial production release in January 2018, several major new features driven by feedback from the community have been released, including: an autoscaler capability for automatically managing the pool of workers for an actor; actor aliases, events and additional features designed to support building complex actor networks; synchronous executions for very low latency actors; and a global search capability. During this time, a number of new projects across a wide range of domains of science and engineering have adopted Abaco in interesting ways. In this paper, we describe the major new capabilities of Abaco since its initial production release and we discuss some of the innovative ways projects have been leveraging them to enable research.

About Learning Labs
“Learning Labs” may be one of several styles of impromptu learning:
  • Pop-up BOFs (Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions): Discuss a topic that you care about or propose a topic that is not covered by pre-scheduled sessions. This is a great way to find the other people at the conference who want to talk about a shared interest. 
  • Mini Hacks: Teach or help others to use specific software, understand development techniques, or tackle other technical topics.
  • Coffee-Break Conversations: Carry on the energy from a post-presentation discussion or elaborate on a topic that comes up in a session.

We will have three, 50–minute periods devoted to your ideas. Each day, multiple online meeting rooms (through QiqoChat) will be set up for you to meet with others and discuss the topics of your choice. Here are the ways you can get involved:
  1. Propose a topic that you’d be willing to host. (You don’t have to be an expert, just interested!)
  2. Find a topic that interests you, and join a "room"!

You'll be able to submit your topics from now through the conference until 3pm Eastern on Thursday, October 22 (1 hour before the last Learning Lab time slot). Topics can be added to meeting rooms each day as long as they're submitted here at least an hour in advance of the Learning Lab time slot.

There is no review/selection process, just the willingness to convene a group.Submit your topic with this Google Form no later than 1 hour before the start of the Learning Lab you wish to host.

We’ll announce the topics in the QiqoChat space and in this Sched program.

With Tapis v3 you can:
* Store and retrieve streaming/sensor data for real-time and batch job processing, with support for temporal and spatial indexes and queries.
* Securely execute workflows that span geographically distributed providers.
* Leverage containerized codes to enable portability, and reduce the overall time-to-solution by utilizing data locality and other smart scheduling techniques.
* Improve repeatability and reproducibility of computations with history and provenance tracking built into the API.
* Manage access to data and results through a fine-grained permissions model, so that digital assets can be securely shared with colleagues or the community at large.
With this learning lab, we aim to reach out to the gateways community members and discuss how users are currently adopting Tapis for variety of scientific use cases and discuss ways in which they can contribute to Tapis.
