Science gateways are a community-specific set of tools, applications, and data collections that are integrated together via a web portal or a desktop application, providing access to resources and services of distributed computing infrastructures (DCIs). Science gateways offer the potential to open the utilisation of DCIs to wider audiences by providing a customised and easy to use user interface to access large computational and data resources. The complexity of the underlying infrastructure can be completely hidden from the end-users by a suitably tailored interface. As interest in science gateways has accelerated in the past few years, an increasing number of new user communities can utilise Grid or Cloud computing resources in a convenient manner.
The organizers invite the submission of papers related to various aspects of Science Gateways. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
There are three alternatives for researchers to present their work: talks, lightning talks, and demonstration sessions. Submission of a full paper may result in a talk, submission of an abstract may result in a lightning talk or a demonstration. Details of the call are available at http://iwsg2015.lpds.sztaki.hu/?m=3 .
Accepted full papers will be published in IEEE format and accepted abstracts will be published online on the IWSG webpage.
