Description

As the digital research landscape broadens, so more research communities are seeking to establish community or science domain specific environments for data sharing and analysis scenarios. Workflow systems are key contributors to these environments: they enable scientist to describe a sequence of computational and data manipulation steps in such a way that it can be automated, repeated, monitored, shared and gradually improved by a community of experts. Workflow systems are graphical or text environments that provide interfaces to design workflows, just like word or spreadsheet processors allow users to write a document or set up a series of calculations, and they often also support the execution of workflows on various infrastructures.

EGI workflow systems enable scientific communities to design and execute applications on resources of the European Grid Infrastructure. The 15-20 workflow systems and the few dozens of workflows that have been built and published from these systems until now are available through the EGI website (http://go.egi.eu/workflows).

This double-session will present the most important workflow systems, workflows and support projects from the EGI community and beyond, and will give us opportunity to discuss and exchange experiences, best practices and issues of building ‘communities of interest’ through workflows. The workshop is jointly organised by the EGI-InSPIRE, SHIWA and ER-Flow EC projects. The workshop will be a forum to present and discuss solutions and issues of:

  • Interoperability of workflows and distributed computing infrastructures
  • Re-using workflows between different workflow languages
  • Data interoperability, data management during building and executing workflows
  • Workflow validation and curation
  • Multi-scale simulations with workflows
  • Sharing workflows within and among communities
  • Uptake and sustainability of workflows and workflow systems
