IWSG 2016 - Rome, Italy
8-10 June 2016

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 workshop aims to bring together researchers and scientists from different scientific domains, along with science gateways developers, to discuss problems and solutions in the area, to identify new issues, to shape future directions for research, foster the exchange of ideas, standards and common requirements and push towards the wider adoption of science gateways in e-Science.

Accepted full papers will be published in PeerJ Computer Science as open-access articles. Additionally, selected accepted papers at the workshop will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue jointly organized with the US workshop on science gateways and the Australasian workshop on science gateways. Dates will be announced after IWSG 2016.
