In collaboration with Blue Waters sustained-petascale computing project, UCLA Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE) is happy to host the following workshop on workflows.
Free Workflows Workshop:
Registration is now open for a free Workflows Workshop to be held August 9-10, 2016 at multiple institutions across the country including UCLA-IDRE. Sponsored by the Blue Waters sustained-petascale computing project, this workshop will provide an overview of workflows and how they can enhance research productivity.
A general session on the value of workflows will be followed by presentations and hands-on sessions with six different workflows. The objective is to assist the community in understanding the capabilities of these various workflows and to get people started with their usage. These include:
- General overview of workflows; Why use them?, presented by Scott Callaghan, University of Southern California
- Copernicus, presented by Peter Kasson, University of Virginia
- Galaxy, presented by Dave Clements, Johns Hopkins University
- Makeflow/WorkQueue, presented by Nicholas Hazekamp, University of Notre Dame
- Pegasus, presented by Karan Vahi and Mats Rynge, Information Sciences Institute
- RADICAL Cybertools, presented by Shantenu Jha, Rutgers University
- Swift, presented by Mike Wilde, Argonne National Laboratory
The presentations will be followed by a question and answer period to address questions from the community. Additional information on the workshop is available at https://sites.google.com/a/illinois.edu/workflows-workshop/home
