Web-Based Workflow Editors (bit.ly/WBWFE)

In these pages we shall discuss the requirements and viability for a graphical workflow editor offered in a web browser that caters for different workflow management systems. We shall be adding here our current design and development work on this, including our data models and database schemas. We solicit comments from and collaboration with workflow system users, workflow system providers and researchers in the field.

Integration versus Diversity: who wins?

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
invited

The presentation was given to the 41st Workshop of the International School of Geophysics, Erice, Italy, "A Roadmap for Earth Science in Europe: The next generation of Geophysical Research Infrastructures". The meeting was organised by EPOS, ORFEUS, COOPEUS and NERA. I was supposed to talk about massive data processing strategies, but as you will see, I saw that many other frequently occurring impediments to success with data were more dominant, so I tried to draw attention to these issues.

Congratulations: Gary McGilvary wins competition at CERN

Congratulations to Gary, who as his hard-won internship in CERN approaches its end, has won a prize in the lightening presentations given by the 20 interns at CERN yesterday. His talk "The Implementation of OpenStack Cinder and Integration with NetApp and Ceph" was one of the three talks awarded a prize:

GeWWE - A Generic Web-based Workflow Editor

Speaker: 
Dr Sandra Gesing

Researchers often need to use workflows that have been developed by other experts in their field to handle specific parts of their work. Sooner or later they find that they want to use workflows from multiple sources that are written in different languages. Enacting multi-lingual workflows (or meta workflows) has been pioneered in a group of European projects. The next step is to be able to change them when they do not do exactly what you want. But that is not easy if you need to learn a different editor for each workflow language.

MoSGrid - Molecular Simulations in a Distributed Environment

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

Molecular simulations are indispensable methods in areas like material science, structural biology, and drug design. These methods address data-intensive and compute-intensive problems, which demand high-performance computing to allow data analysis in an acceptable time. The project MoSGrid (Molecular Simulation Grid) offers a workflow-enabled grid portal allowing access to molecular simulation tools on distributed resources in an intuitive manner. Users are able to exchange workflows and data via repositories and, thus, to exchange knowledge about the specific application domain.

Supporting Collaborative Scientific Workflow Development:The Dispel Information Registry

Presentation Type: 
talk

Large-scale distributed workflow systems for science are nowadays expected to operate in a consistent, predictable way as well as to promote collaboration between researchers or within groups in a unified way. In this talk we will discuss the VERCE Information Registry, which is designed to provide a consistent view of the VERCE ecosystem for seismology along with related architectural requirements, assumptions and interactions with other components.

The VERCE Architecture for Data-Intensive Seismology

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

Typical of the digital revolution, seismology is changing rapidly: the number of deployed seismometers grows rapidly, their performance and connectivity improve and seismologists employ data from other sources, such as LIDAR, satellite images and GPS. But their computational behavior is also changing: they used to just focus on earthquakes, today the use all of the continuous waveform. Just what does this mean for the science and the computational infrastructure to support it? The VERCE project is pioneering this approach and will provide examples during the talk.
