Hands-on session with Scientific Workflows using the SHIWA Simulation Platform



Primary authors



Scientific workflows are an important part of e-science endeavors. Workflow management systems provide tools to coordinate execution and data flow in large computational experiments, and can be valuable allies for the adoption of e-infrastructures by new and well-established scientific communities. There are several workflow management systems, each with its strengths and weaknesses, and there are many e-infrastructures, each with its particularities. Interoperability has become a key concern. The SHIWA platform facilitates interoperability of workflows and infrastructures by providing tools to share, execute and combine workflows in a large variety of scenarios. The SHIWA platform is explored in the ER-flow project by partners from four major research communities - Astrophysics, Computational Chemistry, Heliophysics and Biomedicine. In this hands-on session, instructors from the ER-flow project will lead demonstrations and discussions with the participants for learning, designing, constructing and executing scientific workflows to address the participant's own research questions.
