Title ESRC e-Infrastructure: Workflow Requirements and Evaluation
Abstract This report is a deliverable of the ESRC e-Infrastructure Project WP3.4.1. The target audience is e-social science developers, advanced users, deliverable D3.4.2, the JISC eReSS and NeISS projects and the e-Framework initiative (who will be interested in workflow use cases). Scientific workflow has become attractive in recent years as science becomes increasingly reliant on the analysis of massive data sets and the use of distributed resources. The workflow programming paradigm is seen as a means of managing the complexity in defining the analysis, executing the necessary computations on distributed resources, collecting information about the analysis results and providing means to record and reproduce the scientific analysis. This report presents a very brief and incomplete overview of the current state of the art in the field. We nevertheless hope it will be useful to illustrate how workflow tools are used in e- Social Science. It references research from many of leading computer scientists in the workflow area and provides real world examples from domain scientists actively involved in e-Social Science. The computer science topics addressed provide a broad overview of active research focusing on the areas of workflow representations and process models, component and ervice based workflows, standardization efforts, workflow frameworks and tools, and problem solving environments and portals. The topics covered represent a broad range of scientific workflow and should be of interest to a wide range of computer science researchers, domain scientists interested in applying workflow technologies in their work, and engineers wanting to develop workflow systems and tools.
