Gateway Computing Environments (GCE) 2011
(Workshop at SC 2011)
November 18, 2011
Seattle, Washington

Scientific portals and gateways are important components of many large-
scale Grid and Cloud
computing projects. They are characterized by Web-based environments,
which include, but are not limited to, user interfaces and services
that securely access Grid and Cloud resources, data,
applications, and collaboration environments for communities of
scientists. As a result, the scientific portals and gateways provide
both a user-centric and a community-centric view (with social
networking) of the cyber infrastructure.

Web technologies evolve rapidly, and trends such as Cloud Computing
are changing the way many scientific users expect to interact with
cyberinfrastructure resources. Academic clouds are being created using
open source cloud technologies. Important Web standards such as Open
Social, OpenID, 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 the above discussed and other related 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
* 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
* Tools and frameworks that make developing Grid Portals and gateways
* 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.
