Dear Ioan Raicu,

We would like to invite you to submit a paper to SWEET'12, the 1st
International Workshop on Scalable Workflow Enactment Engines and
Technologies. For more information read the CFP below. We also would
like to ask you to forward this information to those potentially
interested in making a submission.

On behalf of the organizers of SWEET'12,

* Call for Papers *

1st International Workshop on Scalable Workflow Enactment Engines and
inquiries: sweet2012 at easychair.org

Held in conjunction with SIGMOD 2012
Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, May 20, 2012

Papers submission deadline: February, 19th, 2012
Authors notification: April 8th
Deadline for camera-ready copy: May 13th
Workshop: May 20

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners to explore the potential of cloud-based computing in
facilitating the convergence between workflows and large-scale data
processing. Concretely, the workshop is expected to provide insight

- performance issues: efficient data processing using cloud-based
- modelling issues: best practices in data-intensive workflow
modelling and enactment,
- support technology issues: how the potential synergy between large-
scale data processing and workflow technology can be exploited in a
principled way.

The workshop aims to address issues of (i) Architecture, (ii) Models
and Languages, (iii) Applications of cloud-based workflows. Specific
topics include (but, as usual, are not limited to):

+ cloud-based, scalable workflow enactment architectures,
+ efficient data storage for data-intensive workflows,
+ optimizing execution of data-intensive workflows,
+ workflow scheduling in cloud computing.

Models, Languages:
+ languages for data-intensive workflows, data processing pipelines
and data-mashups,
+ verification and validation of data-intensive workflows,
+ programming models for cloud computing,
+ access control and authorisation models, privacy, security, risk and
trust issues,
+ workflow patterns for data-intensive workflows.

Applications of cloud-based workflow:
+ bioinformatics,
+ data mashups,
+ semantic web data management,
+ big data analytics.

We invite full research or experience papers (up to 12 pages), or
short papers (up to 6 pages) describing research in progress,
formatted using the ACM proceedings style (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates

The workshop proceedings will be part published by CEUR and will be
included in the ACM DL.

In addition, we have an agreement with the Fundamenta Informaticae
journal to fast-track a few selected paper for further publication.
