**** WORKS 2016 Workshop ****
Workflows in Support of Large-Scale Science
Monday, 14 November 2016, Salt Lake City, Utah.
Held in conjunction with SC16 The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

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
