Title Web based Virtual Research Environments
Abstract Computer-based research plays an increasingly important role around the world today. Whilst more and more people are benefiting from research projects, they are not all well supported by advanced ICT. Information technologies have gradually been adopted by researchers, for example through digital library services, computation and data Grids, but most researchers are still rely heavily on "traditional'' technologies like e-mail and telephone as their principal collaboration tools. In this chapter, we will share our recent experiences in the area of Web-based Virtual Research Environments (VREs), which aim to provide researchers with a pervasive collaborative working environment enabling them to work together more efficiently in their daily activities to solve research ``grand challenges''. We first give some background and current status of VREs and then illustrate our experience in several VRE-related projects. Finally, we discuss the future of VREs and summarise the chapter.
