Workflows Community Summit (Jan 13)

In collaboration with the workflowsRI project we are organizing the Workflows Community Summit. This unique event will gather a select group of lead researchers from distinct workflow management systems, and will seek to identify crucial challenges in the workflow community. This event will be the first of a series of workflows meetings, and will serve to bring the workflows community together.
