Scientific research is increasingly carried out by communities of researchers that span disciplines, laboratories, organizations and national boundaries. These activities involve geographically distributed and heterogeneous resources such as computational systems, scientific instruments, databases, sensors, software components, networks, and people. Such large-scale and enhanced scientific endeavors are carried out via collaborations on a global scale in which information and computing technology plays a vital role and are thus popularly termed as e-Science.
