Now that the Internet and Web are abundantly present in every days live and net-working and computing speed are improving at an impressive rate, more and more attempts become visible to apply these developments towards science, in general often called: e-Science.

In order for e-Science to work, an environment has to be created that should support the requirements of different scientific domains such as life sciences or high energy physics research.
