Abstract

Workflows are increasingly being used to specify computational tasks, from simulations and data analysis to the creation of Web mashups. Recently, a number of public workflow repositories have become available, for example, myExperiment for scientific workflows, and Yahoo! Pipes. Workflow collections are also commonplace in many scientific projects. Having such collections opens up new opportunities for knowledge sharing and re-use. But for this to become a reality, mechanisms are needed that help users explore these collections and locate useful workflows. Although there has been work on querying workflows, not much attention has been given to presenting query results. In this paper, we take a first look at the requirements for workflow snippets and study alternative techniques for deriving concise, yet informative snippets.
