Focus and Scope
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 emergence of Desktop based Grid tools that make the development and also the use of Grids easier. This workshop focuses on projects and technologies that are adopting these new technologies and services as well as develop new ones. Areas of interest include 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.

Peer Review Process
The review is done as part of the Workshop preparation and publication. Each paper is reviewed typically by three reviewers. Judging is done on Intellectual Merritt, Presentation, and Novelty.
Open Access Policy
International Workshop on Grid Computing Environments provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
