* 8th International Workshop on Science Gateways *
* IWSG 2016 *
* 8-10 June 2016 in Rome, Italy *

Science gateways are a community-specific portals offering tools,
applications, and data collections that are integrated together, providing
access to data sources and services of distributed computing
infrastructures (DCIs). Science gateways offer the potential to facilitate
data analysis on a large scale and open the utilisation of DCIs to wider
audiences by providing a customised and easy to use user interface
accessing 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
The workshop aims at bringing 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.

We invite the submission of papers related to various aspects of Science
Gateways. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

* Science gateway enabling technologies and development frameworks
* Ready to use science gateways in different areas and disciplines
* Management of high-throughput data via science gateways
* Portal technology and portal construction methods
* Usage models and gateway tools in different disciplines
* Security aspects of science gateways
* Usability studies of science gateways

We in particular encourage the submissions of application scientists and
community members, reporting about their experiences with science gateways.
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. All contributions will be subject of a double blind
peer review which will serve as basis for the decision of acceptance.
Further details of the call are available at
Accepted full papers will be published in a fully indexed journal and
accepted abstracts will be published online on the IWSG webpage. As
negotiations with different publishers are pending please check the IWSG
website throughout the next weeks for more information.

Important dates:
• The deadline for paper/abstract submission: 20 March 2016
• Notification of acceptance: 17 April 2016
• Submission of camera ready papers/abstracts: 01 May, 2016
• Registration deadline for authors/presenters: 15 May, 2016
• Registration closing: 29 May 2016
• Date of the workshop: 8-10 June, 2016
