报告内容简介:

Many disciplines including biology and biomedicine have adopted the service/cloud computing paradigms, and leveraging workflows to orchestrate data-pipelines. Two major NIH sponsored initiatives, i.e., cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG) and CardioVascular Research Grid (CVRG), have both adopted a service/cloud infrastructure that virtualizes the access of data and computational resources, and elastically scales out for more power.

This talk mainly consists of three parts. We start with an overview of the service/cloud infrastructure and their benefits to domain scientists. Afterwards we present caFlow, a workflow toolkit for caBIG with rich features such as service discovery, stateful interaction, data access and security. Given the infrastructure and the toolkit, scientists call for composition guidance to reuse the best practices and wisdom of the crowds. To address this research challenge we propose a network-based approach called ServiceMap, to provide a GPS-like support to: 1) help domain scientists understand various usage patterns of the existing services; and 2) recommend possible service compositions.

At the end of the talk I will give some personal perspectives on how services computing is to interplay with Cloud computing, social network and big data, and evolve in the near future.
