GCE06 - Second International Grid Computing Environments and Portals
Workshop 06

* Conference Web Page:
* held in conjunction with with [ SC06],
Tampa, FL
* Meeting dates: Sunday, Nov 12, 8:00am-3:00pm and
Monday, Nov 13, 8-5. 8:00am - 3:00pm
* Meeting Location, Salon G


The purpose of this Workshop is to bring together the community to
discuss and foster the exchange of ideas for the development of tools,
methodologies and frameworks to build Grid computing
environments. Last years conference at SC05 focussed on tools for Grid
Portals. This years conference will broaden the discussion to also
include efforts of other tools that make the development and use of
Grids more easily accesible from the desktop. The results of the
Workshop will be published in a special edition of
[ Concurrency Practice and


Scientific portals and gateways have emerged to be important
components of many large-scale scientific computing and Grid
projects. They are characterized by delivering well-established
mechanisms for providing familiar interfaces to secure Grid resources,
services, applications, tools, and collaboration services for
communities of scientists. In most cases access is enabled through a
web browser without the need to download or install any specialized
software or worry about networks and ports. As a result, the science
application user is isolated from the complex details and
infrastructure needed to operate an application on the Grid.

In addition to Web-based tools we see the emergance of Desktop based
Grid tools that make the development and also the use of Grids easier.

This workshop will focus on projects and technologies that are
adopting these new technologies and services as well as develop new
once. We seek papers from all aspects of portal, gateway, and tool
development including architecture design and standards studies,
toolkits developed in support of Grid portals and gateways, as well as
Grid middleware.

GCE 2006 topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Applications of Grid Portals and Gateways (including User
Portals, Application Portals, Science Gateways, Education Portals,
User interface/usability studies).
* Design and architecture of Grid portals and gateways including
* Tools and frameworks that make developing Grid Portals and
gatweaways easier
* Portal security models and solutions.
* Middleware solutions in support of portals and Gatwways
including: Web Services; WSRF Services; Grid technologies; Databases;
Workflows; WSRP and other standards; Web services in support of
Portals and Gateways.
* Interaction with Commodity and Commercial tools such as Perl,
Python, Matlab, and Mathematica.
* Interaction with Desktop aplications.

Paper Submission and Publication

Authors are invited to submit a full paper on original and unpublished
work (which is also not submitted elsewhere for review) reporting
omsignificant projects and results in any aspect of Grid portals,
gateways and desktops, as well as their related technologies. Papers
should not exceed 10 single-spaced pages of text including images and
references using 11 point size type on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with 1in
margins. The document format is PDF. Electronic submission will be
done through the workshop website. Submission implies the willingness
of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.


All papers selected for this workshop will be peer-reviewed. The
accepted authors will have the posibility to publish an enhanced
version in a special issue of Concurrency and Computation: Practice
and Experience ( under the journal
