Call For Papers

SWBES-08: Challenging issues in workflow Applications
in conjunction with IEEE Int'l Conference on e-Science 2008
December 7-12, Indianapolis USA

Aims and scope

Nowadays, scientific experiments often involve cooperation between large scale computing and data resources. Workflow management systems are emerging as a key element to help scientists to prototype and execute experiments processes and to accelerate the scientific discoveries from the experiment. Concerted research is carried out in several projects along the complete e-Science technology chain, ranging from applications to networking, focusing on new methodologies and re-usable components. A number of research groups worldwide are developing more and more advanced workflow features to support scientists to develop complex computing and data intensive application workflows using geographically distributed data and computing resources. Despite many successes, the gap between the workflow application developers and workflow system developers is still very big and it is still difficult for lots of potential application developers to fully utilize the features offered by the workflow systems. The workshop of WSBES08 focuses on practical aspects of utilising workflow techniques to fill the gap between the e-Science applications on one hand and the middleware (Grid) and the low level infrastructure on the other hand. The workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers and developers in the field of e-Science to exchange the latest experience and research ideas on scientific workflow management and e-Science. Live demos of workflow systems and workflow application highly recommended.


Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts that demonstrate current research in all areas of scientific workflow management in e-Science. The workshop solicits novel papers on using business workflow standards to tackle scientific workflow issues, including but not limited to:
* Workflow infrastructure and e-Science middleware
* Workflow API and graphical user interface
* Workflow modelling techniques
* Workflow specification language
* Workflow execution engine
* Dynamic workflow control
* Workflow verification and validation
* Workflow system performance analysis
* Support tools for managing workflows
* AI techniques in workflow management, e.g., planning, runtime control and user support;
* Security control in managing workflow
* Real-world applications of scientific workflow
* Different levels of interoperability among workflow systems;
* Automatic composition of scientific workflow;
* Scientific Workflow Management Systems in e-science framework
* Different domains of e-Science Applications
* Workflow system performance analysis
* Knowledge infrastructure in workflow management;
* Applying workflow techniques for e-science: dynamic control, verification and validation, planning, runtime control and user support;
* Automatic composition of scientific workflow;
* Knowledge infrastructure for e-Science workflow management
Papers should explicitly address one or more challenging issue faced while developing a targeted e-Science application. We highly recommend when possible to prepare a demo which can be shown during the conference.

Paper submission and publication
Authors should submit electronically a full (6-page) paper to the workshop upload facilitate. The papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. Accepted papers should be presented at the workshop. All accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA and will be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.
