Title: Towards a collective Knowledge Base: sharing the expertise acquired on developing Grid-based e-Science and e-Social Science applications

Abstract: This paper aims to illustrate the potential benefits for academic end-users of integrating existing efforts around describing, building, and using Grid infrastructures. It shows that UK e-Science and e-Social Science projects, among others, can be documented with different levels of user abstraction to facilitate understanding and sharing of the expertise acquired when using Grids and developing Grid-based e-Science and e-Social Science applications. The research study presented uses three existing service-oriented approaches to test the viability of capturing and abstracting the Grid services used in a particular project, and thereby, going beyond document-centric approaches. Each of the three approaches exhibits different levels of abstraction and formalisation and is illustrated by a Grid-based application from the Social Sciences. This example is used to underpin the proposal that it is time to move towards the creation of a collective Knowledge Base that goes beyond presenting projects solely in the scientific literature.
