Workflows have recently emerged as a paradigm for representing and managing complex distributed scientific computations and therefore accelerate the pace of scientific progress. A recent workshop on the Challenges of Scientific Workflows, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and held on May 1-2, 2006, brought together domain scientists, computer scientists, and social scientists to discuss requirements of future scientific applications and the challenges that they present to current
