Registration is now open for a free Workflows Workshop to be held August 9-10 at multiple institutions across the country, including Oklahoma State University. 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. Participants will also have an opportunity to test their new-found knowledge using Blue Waters and XSEDE computing systems. These presentations 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
