Call For Papers

IEEE 2010 Fourth International Workshop on Scientific Workflows (SWF 2010)
Miama, Florida, U.S.A., one day between July 5-10, 2010
In conjunction with IEEE ICWS/SCC/CLOUD/SERVICES 2010

Scientific workflows have become an increasingly popular paradigm for scientists to
formalize and structure complex scientific processes to enable and accelerate many
significant scientific discoveries. A scientific workflow is a formal specification
of a scientific process, which represents, streamlines, and automates the analytical
and computational steps that a scientist needs to go through from dataset selection
and integration, computation and analysis, to final data product presentation and
visualization. The importance of scientific workflows has been recognized by NSF
since 2006 and was reemphasized recently in a science article
titled "Beyond the Data Deluge" (Science, Vol. 323. no. 5919, pp. 1297 ?C 1298, 2009),
which concluded, ??In the future, the rapidity with which any given discipline advances
is likely to depend on how well the community acquires the necessary expertise in database,
workflow management, visualization, and cloud computing technologies."

The goal of SWF 2010 is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present
their recent research results and best practices of scientific workflows, and identify
the emerging trends, opportunities, problems, and challenges in this area.
Authors are invited to submit regular papers (8 pages) and short papers (4 pages)
that show original unpublished research results in all areas
of scientific workflows. Topics of interest are listed below; however, submissions
on all aspects of scientific workflows are welcome.
Accepted SWF 2010 papers will be included in the proceedings of IEEE SERVICES 2010,
which will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press.

o Scientific workflow provenance management and analytics
o Scientific workflow data, metadata, service, and task management
o Scientific workflow architectures, models, and languages
o Scientific workflow monitoring, debugging, and failure handling
o Streaming data processing in scientific workflows
o Pipelined, data, workflow, and task parallelism in scientific workflows
o Service, Grid, or Cloud-based scientific workflows
o Data, metadata, compute, user-interaction, or visualization-intensive scientific workflows
o Scientific workflow composition
o Security issues in scientific workflows
o Data integration and service integration in scientific workflows
o Scientific workflow mapping, optimization, and scheduling
o Scientific workflow modeling, simulation, analysis, and verification
o Scalability, reliability, extensibility, agility, and interoperability
o Scientific workflow applications
