A Science Gateway is a community-developed set of tools, applications,
and data that is integrated via a portal or a suite of applications, usually in a graphical user interface, that is customized to meet the needs of the targeted community. Existing gateways employ at a greater and lesser extent some combination of the following relevant technologies and methodologies: Grid, e-collaboration, Service Oriented Architecture, Web services, and semantic and ontology Web, and offer a large variety of services. They are built by and for a specific community and are strategically of key importance. During this session in particular the gateway in TeraGrid will be detailed. The goal of this session is to understand how to install such Gateway in EGEE and benefit from the Teragrid experience in order to anticipate the SSC gateways in EGI.
