Introduction to CWL and Docker: automating workflows in Life Sciences

We are glad to announce that the registration period is open to attend the workshop "Introduction to CWL and Docker: automating workflows in Life Sciences" that will take place at the National Infrastructures for Research and Technology (GRNET) in Athens on the 30th and 31st of March, 2020.

Reproducible research is an important part of good scientific practice; therefore, establishing robust computational analysis workflows can greatly facilitate this. There has been a strong emphasis on establishing graphic workflow management systems, such as Galaxy and Knime. However, the landscape and complexity of Linux command line tools for workflow management is vast and complicated. This 2-day workshop covers all the steps from defining containers using Docker, to constructing module-based workflows using the Common Workflow Language (CWL).
