Scientific workflow design for mere mortals

Timothy McPhillips, Shawn Bowers, Daniel Zinn, Bertram Ludäscher
2009 Future generations computer systems  
With these users in mind, we identify a set of desiderata for scientific workflow systems crucial for enabling scientists to model and design the workflows they wish to automate themselves.  ...  Regardless of how a workflow is ultimately deployed -within a local desktop computer, web server, or distributed computing environment -scientists must have models and tools for designing scientific workflows  ...  Finally, while the assembly-line approach can make it easier for scientists to design and understand their workflows, a naïve implementation of a comad workflow enactment engine can result in a greater  ...
