When History Matters - Assessing Reliability for the Reuse of Scientific Workflows

When History Matters - Assessing Reliability for the Reuse of Scientific Workflows

This video was recorded at 12th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Sydney 2013. Scientific workflows play an important role in computational research as essential artifacts for communicating the methods used to produce research findings. We are witnessing a growing number of efforts that treat workflows as first-class artifacts for sharing and exchanging scientific knowledge, either as part of scholarly articles or as stand-alone objects. However, workflows are not born to be reliable, which can seriously damage their reusability and trustworthiness as knowledge exchange instruments. Scientific workflows are commonly subject to decay, which consequently undermines their reliability over their lifetime. The reliability of workflows can be notably improved by advocating scientists... Show More
