Simulation tools and languages, Workflow management, Workflow adaptation, SOA


In this paper we explore to what extent the conventional workflow technology and service-oriented architecture (SOA) principles can be applied to support scientist in their experiments. Based on the requirements imposed on systems for scientific computing, e-Science and simulations, and an extended workflow life cycle we introduce the architecture of an interactive system that reuses the conventional workflow technology. We advocate the realization of this workflow system with advanced adaptation and monitoring features because we identified that modeling of scientific applications and simulations can only be done the “scientists’ way” if the traditional workflow modeling as well as design and run time adaptation are combined in a user-friendly solution.
