Register now for free Workflows Workshop

Registration is now open for a free Workflows Workshop to be held August 9-10 at multiple institutions across the country. 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. These include:

  • General overview of workflows; Why use them?, presented by Scott Callaghan, University of Southern California
