inquiries: wands10 at easychair.org

Held in conjunction with SIGMOD 2010
Indianapolis, IN, USA, June 6th, 2010

Deadline for camera-ready copy: May 15th
Workshop: June 6th

*Keynote* by Prof. Bertram Ludaescher, UC Davis

Note a slight change to paper format and submission guidelines:
We invite full research or experience papers (up to 12 pages), or short papers (up to 6 pages) describing research in progress, formatted
using the ACM proceedings style (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates)

The workshop aims at clarifying the role of workflow technology in accelerating science, by providing effective means to automate data management tasks on a large scale. Thus, it sits at the intersection between process management for scientific applications, and data management. 
A number of innovative, but uncoordinated, efforts in data-centric workflows have made their mark on the scientific and business world in recent years. The goal of this workshop is to use these efforts to start bringing together a research community around the theoretical foundations,  technology development,  and domain applications of workflow systems in the context of large-scale data management for science.

In this spirit, we seek contributions from both researchers and practitioners on all aspects of data and process management that contribute towards this goal. More specifically, relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Role of workfows in data analytics, mining and statistics 
- Performance estimation and optimization of workflow execution
- Scalability of workflow-based solutions on very large data sets
- Role of metadata in static profiling of dataflows
- Impact of, and new requirements for, workflow technology on open science
- Workflow warehousing, indexing, searching, and mining 
- Workflows for service orchestration
- Mapping workflows to cloud computing environments
- In-database workflow execution
- User interaction models for complex eScience: visibility vs. commoditization
- Workflow repurposing and reuse
- Privacy models for data-centric workflows
- Workflow semantics
- Workflows as invisible middleware
- Workflows in Service-oriented life sciences
- Component-based business intelligence
- Sensor data processing
- Data integration and provenance tracking in medical research

We invite full research or experience papers (up to 12 pages), or short papers (up to 6 pages) describing research in progress, 
formatted using the ACM proceedings style (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates)

The workshop proceedings will be part of the SIGMOD DISC distribution  and will be included in the ACM DL.
