Scientific portals and gateways are important components of many large-scale scientific computing and Grid projects. They are characterized by Web-based user interfaces and services that securely access Grid resource, data, application, and collaboration services for communities of scientists. As a result, the science application user is shielded from the complex details and infrastructure needed to operate an application on the Grid. Gateways and Cyberinfrastructure are being heavily influenced by the so-called Web 2.0 trends in Internet computing. Ajax, JSON, folksonomies, social networking, mash-ups, REST, RSS/Atom feeds, and other developments run parallel to much that has occurred in the Gateway community. These approaches provide important enhancements to the ways gateways interact with information services, provide rich user interactivity, and build social networks. Examining the impact of these technologies will be the main focus of the workshop, but papers on all aspects of science gateway development are encouraged.
