Automate your multi-resource or pre/post processing tasks using ECSS Workflows
Our mission is to better enable challenging scientific research on XSEDE through the use of scientific workflow technologies.
Do you have a scientific workflow? Do you use XSEDE in any of the following ways?
- Large scale parameter sweep problems.
- Computations that need to run on more than one XSEDE site.
- Computations that combine multiple scientific applications in novel ways.
- Computations with demanding pre- and post-processing steps that require XSEDE all by themselves.
- Computations requiring non-trivial data movement between XSEDE resources.
The Workflow Community Applications Team is available to help. We provide expertise and assistance with scientific workflow software tools that make challenging workflow problems more efficiently executed, easier to manage, and easier to reproduce.

The XSEDE Workflow Community Applications Team's charter is to assist researchers to use scientific workflow technologies on XSEDE to solve challenging scientific problems involving parameter sweeps, multiple applications combined in dependency chains, tightly coupled applications, and similar execution patterns that require multiple applications and multiple XSEDE resources. The workflow team accomplishes its mission through the use of third party workflow software in collaboration with the workflow developers, service providers and XSEDE Extended Collaborative Support Services.
