Organizer: BioExcel

Host institution: University of Manchester, BioExcel CoE

Start: Wednesday, 28 February 2018 @ 14:00

End: Wednesday, 28 February 2018 @ 15:00

Timezone: GMT

Contact: Stian Soiland-Reyes http://ask.bioexcel.eu/

Scientific topic: Bioinformatics, Genomics, Workflows

Target audience:
  • bioinformaticians
  • HPC users
Description:

The Common Workflow Language (CWL) is a community-led specification for describing analysis workflows and tools in a way that makes them portable and scalable across a variety of software and hardware environments, from workstations to cluster, cloud, and high performance computing (HPC) environments.

IBM Spectrum LSF (formerly IBM Platform LSF) is a complete workload management solution for demanding HPC environments. Featuring intelligent, policy-driven scheduling, it helps organizations accelerate research and design while controlling costs through superior resource utilization.

Recognizing the popularity of CWL among LSF users, we introduce a new open source project CWLEXEC to support running CWL workflows on LSF. The project will feature smooth integration with LSF with high efficiency and scalability, self-healing of workflows, support user-specified submission options while keeping CWL definitions portable, and other benefits.
