Abstract: This paper presents initial analysis and outcomes from the ISME of JISC/VRE project to enable geographically remote teams of material scientists to work together. Comparisons between different AccessGrid tools have been made, allowing us to identify their advantages and disadvantages regarding quality (visual and audio) over broadband networks, utility, ease of use, reliability, cost and support. Our detailed analysis has informed the development of a suite of services on the web portal. Besides user interactions, a suite of services based on JSR-168 had been developed for evaluation. Each service has been evaluated by materials scientist users, thereby allowing qualitative user requirement gathering. This feedback has resulted in a prioritised implementation list for these services within the prototype web portal allowing the project to develop useful features for material scientists and the wider VRE community.
