                     WORKS 2016 Workshop
     Workflows in Support of Large-Scale Science

                       Held in conjunction with 
SC16 The International Conference for High Performance 
       Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

      November 14, 2016, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA



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.
