ABSTRACT: 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 built, shared, and secured. It is the goal of the GCE workshop series to provide a venue for researchers to present pioneering, peer-reviewed work on these and other topics to the international science gateway community.
