2009 International Workshop on Science Gateways  
Given their ability to hide the complexities of the underlying computational environment, Science gateways, Grid portals and Web Service interfaces are crucial in enhancing user adoption of e-Infrastructures. Much effort has been invested in this field to create virtual environments that allow researchers to focus on their research carried out within the Virtual Organisations they belong to. The approach presented in the paper follows the Teragrid vision, according to which gateways enable

The paper describes the EnginFrame framework developed to easily build Science Gateway prototypes and presents a use case from the Life Sciences domain. 1 Dissemination and Exploitation of GRids in Earth sciencE, http://www.eu-degree.eu 2 Deliverable 4.1 and Deliverable 4.3, http://www.eudegree.eu/DEGREE/internal-section/wp4/
