AB  - The development, testing and use of particle accelerator modeling codes is a core competency of accelerator research laboratories around the world, and likewise for synchrotron radiation and X-ray optics codes at lightsource facilities. Such codes require time and training to learn a command-line workflow involving multiple input and configuration files, execution on a high-performance server or cluster, post-processing with specialized software and finally visualization. Such workflows are error prone an difficult to reproduce. Cloud computing and UI design are core competencies of RadiaSoft LLC, where the Sirepo* framework is being developed to make state of the art codes available in the browser of any desktop, laptop or tablet. We present our initial successes as real world examples of knowledge exchange (KE) between industry and the research community. This work is leading to broader knowledge exchange throughout the community by facilitating education of students and enabling instantaneous sharing of simulation details between colleagues. Sirepo design objectives include: seamless integration with legacy codes, low barrier to entry for new users, configuration transfer to command line mode, catalog of provenance to aid reproducibility, and simplified collaboration through multimodal sharing. The Sirepo Scientific Gateway** allows users to directly test the software. The combination of intuitive browser-based GUIs and Sirepo’s server-side application container technology enables simplified computational archiving and reproducibility. If embraced by the community, this could become an important asset for the design, commissioning and future upgrade of particle accelerator and X-ray beamline facilities.
