Call For Papers

Data-Intensive Workflows (a.k.a. scientific workflows) are routinely used in most scientific disciplines today, especially in the context of parallel and distributed computing. Workflows provide a systematic way of describing the analysis, and rely on workflow management systems to execute the complex analyses on a variety of distributed resources. They are at the interface of end-users and computing infrastructures. With the drastic increase of raw data volume in every domain, they play an even more critical role to assist scientists in organizing and processing their data and to leverage HPC or HTC resources.
This workshop focuses on the many facets of data-intensive workflow management systems, ranging from job execution to service management and the coordination of data, service, and job dependencies. The workshop therefore covers a broad range of issues in the scientific workflow lifecycle that include: data-intensive workflows representation and enactment; designing workflow composition interfaces; workflow mapping techniques that may optimize the execution of the workflow; workflow enactment engines that need to deal with failures in the application and execution environment; and a number of computer science problems related to scientific workflows such as semantic technologies, compiler methods, fault detection, and tolerance.
The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
Big Data analytics workflows
Data-driven workflow processing
Workflow composition, tools, and languages
Workflow execution in distributed environments
Workflows on the cloud
Dynamic data dependent workflow systems solutions
Exascale computing with workflows
Workflow refinement tools that can manage the workflow mapping process
Workflow fault-tolerance and recovery techniques
Workflow user environments, including portals
Workflow applications and their requirements
Adaptive workflows
Workflow monitoring
Workflow optimizations (including scheduling and energy efficiency)
Performance analysis of workflows
Workflow debugging
Workflow provenance
Interactive workflows
Workflow interoperability
Reproducible computational research using workflows
