e-Research Summer Hackfest: The Kepler workflow manager

Michal Owsiak

05 July 2016

Abstract: This presentation involves examination of Kepler as a tool for building scientific workflows. Emphases are on development of basic skills that will allow attendees to get familiar with the process of building workflows. We will cover topics covering simple tasks and present how to express typical programming constructs in workflow based environment. We will discuss simple workflows, composite actors, ways of switching data flow, building loops, and calling Python code directly from the workflow. This session will provide students with general "feel" of Kepler workflow management system (https://kepler-project.org). #### Organization - This session is a tutorial based, hands on session. Students are required to take active part during the training. All materials will be available and each task will be explained with required level of details. In case students will face issues while following tasks, they are encouraged to raise their doubts. #### Session objectives - 1. to describe basics of Kepler workflow management system - 2. to introduce students to the workflow based computations - 3. to introduce students to the process of building workflows using Kepler-- 4. to introduce students to more complex topics: loops, Python execution. e-Research Summer Hackfest (http://www.sci-gaia.eu/summer-hackfest).
