Problem Solving Environment (PSE) represents an active newly emerging scientific and technological area in eScience. PSEs provide innovative computational facilities for easy incorporation of novel solution methods to solve a target class of problems. Grid environments, distributed and heterogeneous resources, and collaborative environments are critical components of PSEs.

The Grid and related distributed systems are large and complex information systems that integrate heterogeneous computer hardware resources, application software, middleware, experimental instruments, and so on. PSEs are friendly and efficient facilities to help users work with such complicated systems.

Key issues to be addressed in this session include PSE for Grid, PSE for collaborations, PSE for heterogeneous distributed system management, PSE for application developments, PSE for scientific computing, MPSE (Multi-physics-modeling PSE), PSE for education, as well as others issues related to PSEs for eSceince. There has been a lot of activity and progress in PSE research and development recently. The workshop will provide a forum for PSE researchers to exchange information and foster future research issues in the PSE area.
