    **** 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 http://works.cs.cardiff.ac.uk/

    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
