Title Virtual Research Environments: Sakai Demonstrator
Abstract This paper provides an overview of work being undertaken in the JISC-funded Sakai VRE Demonstrator project. This is a collaboration of groups at Daresbury Laboratory and the Universities of Lancaster, Oxford and Portsmouth which are aiming to develop a highly-functional portal interface to distributed resources in a Virtual Research Environment. Sakai was chosen because it already contains a number of collaboration and education tools and has been used to support Grid-based research in the USA, for instance in the NEESGrid project. The paper describes some of the work which is starting to extend the portal framework into a Service Oriented Architecture, in particular authentication and authorisation mechanisms for portal-based VREs, and our approach to evaluating the e ectiveness of the deliverables.
