*** WANDS: The 1st International Workshop on Workflow Approaches to New 
Data-centric Science ***

Held in conjunction with SIGMOD 2010

June 6, 2010, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Workshop website: http://wands2010.doc.ic.ac.uk
Registration website: https://regmaster3.com/2010conf/MOD10/register.php

**** the SIGMOD early registration deadline is May 15th. ****

** Scope of the workshop **
A number of innovative, but uncoordinated, efforts in data-centric 
workflows have made their mark on the scientific and business world in 
recent years. The goal of this workshop is to use these efforts to bring 
together a research community around the theoretical foundations, 
technology development, and domain applications of workflow systems. As 
a first postulate, we take that there is no uniform workflow solution, 
in the same way that there is no uniform programming language. 
Furthermore, our goal is not to promote a particular technology, or even 
interoperability between individual technologies. What we intend to 
achieve is to present, discuss and ultimately better the different 
computational models, usability patterns, and domain approaches used in 
the field.

The program includes 6 research papers, one position paper, and 3 
invited contributions:
- a keynote by Prof. *Bertam Ludaescher, UC Davis*,
- an invited talk by *Prof. Tova Milo, from Tel Aviv University*,
- and a report on the 2009 NSF workshop on Data-Centric Workflows, by 
*Jianwen Su*, UCSB.
