Abstract: Interactions and organization models tend to be more and more oriented to flexibility, heterogeneity and
collaboration in the style of Virtual Organizations. This paper is framed in the context of e-science and
presents an approach to the definition and execution of distributed scientific experiments as a pool of
services executed on collaborating sites at different heterogeneous organizations. The focus is on flexibility,
reuse, orchestration and interoperability of services within a cooperation process. It is discussed how the
workflow of the experiment can be specified by actors with low information technology, but high domain,
knowledge and how an agent-based framework can enhance the flexibility of experiment execution.
Examples are given in the bioinformatics context. A prototype environment is described.
