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 mappingprocess
     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
