Enabling Platforms for Social Communities in e-Research

Time 04/22/08 03:00PM-04:00PM

Session Abstract

Research1 is a web based collaboration framework being developed by ResearchChannel. Its primary functions are to serve as a premier outlet for researchers to fulfill their public outreach requirements, foster real-time interaction and communication between scientists, educators, students and the public, and to provide a collaborative research environment for teams who could potentially be geographically dispersed. To facilitate community development and collaboration services within Research1 the project team is exploring integration of COmanage as a middleware platform supporting federated identity, group and access management. The speaker will demonstrate Research1 and discuss the middleware requirements to enable federated collaborative communities.
