Aims and scope

In e-Science, workflow systems become an important environment to prototype and perform scientific experiments. Workflow systems model experiment processes and provide user interface for scientists to describe experiment logic and to automate the execution. Different requirements for supporting domain specific applications are important driving force for the development of workflow systems. The workshop on AWCS is to provide a forum for sharing knowledge and experience on developing workflow applications, and highlight important requirements for system development. Live demos of workflow application are welcome.



Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts that demonstrate current research in all areas of scientific workflow management in e-Science. The workshop solicits novel papers on workflow applications in all kinds of e-Science domains including but not limited to:

-         Bio-informatics

-         Medical imaging

-         High energy physics

-         Astronomy

-         Computational chemistry

-         Bio-diversity

-         Food informatics

-         Other application domains.


Paper submission and publication

Authors should submit electronically a full (8-page) paper to the workshop via the ICCS 2008 paper submission system. The papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. Accepted papers should be presented at the workshop. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer-Verlag. Selected best papers, after extension, will be published in a suitable international journal as a special issue. Important Dates

  • December 22 January 31, 2008 Full paper due
  • March 1, 2008 Notification
  • March 15, 2008 Camera-ready paper due
