ICCS 2012 Workshop Highlights Advances in Kepler Scientific Workflows
Workshop Gathers Myriad Success Stories Across Diverse Applications
A first-time workshop highlighting the latest advances in the Kepler Scientific Workflow System brought together researchers and computational scientists to discuss a wide array of innovative uses for the software application, ranging from data curation of natural science collections to facilitating nuclear fusion computations.
The workshop, presented at the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS2012) earlier this month, gathered computational scientists and researchers from diverse areas such as bioinformatics, computational physics, natural language processing, and microscopy imaging to discuss the latest advances using Kepler, a workflow application designed to help scientists, analysts, and computer programmers create and share models and analyses across a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines.
The session helped facilitate further development and collaborations for using the workflow system, and attracted numerous new science papers and success stories on the use of distributed computing technologies, e.g. grid and cloud computing, data curation, and text mining methods using Kepler.
Accepted papers are published in Volume 9 of Procedia Computer Science. Papers specific to the ICCS2012 Kepler workshop are numbered 173 through 181, and can be viewed in full here. The ICCS2012 conference was held in Omaha, Nebraska, June 4-6.
