Grid Computing Environments 2009 Call for Papers

Scientific portals and gateways are important components of many large-scale Grid and Cloud computing projects. They are characterized by Web-based user interfaces and services that securely access Grid and Cloud resources, data, applications, and collaboration services for communities of scientists. As a result, the scientific gateway provides a user- and (with social networking) a community-centric view of cyberinfrastructure.

Web technologies evolve rapidly, and trends such as Cloud Computing are changing the way many scientific users expect to interact with resources. Academic clouds are being created using open source cloud technologies. Important Web standards such as Open Social and OAuth are changing the way Web portals are build, shared, and secured. It is the goal of the GCE workshop series to provide venue for researchers to present pioneering, peer-reviewed work on these and other topics to the international science gateway community.

Topics of interest include the following:

 * Integration of Web 2.0 technologies with science gateways;
 * Gateways to cloud computing services;
 * Applications of virtual world technologies to science and education gateways;
 * Social networks for scientific communities;
 * Grid portals and gateways deployments, including User Portals, Application Portals, Science Gateways, Education Portals, User interface/usability studies;
 * Design and architecture of Grid portals, portal containers, and gateways;
 * Tools and frameworks that make developing Grid Portals and gateways easier;
 * Portal security models and solutions;
 * Middleware solutions in support of scientific portals and Gateways including Web Services, workflow and mashup composers and engines, and similar capabilities;
 * Non-browser gateways: desktops and mobile computing gateways; and   
 * Summary and survey papers.

Workshop Format

The workshop format will be consist of 30 minute presentations of peer-reviewed papers.
