Events

FAIR Computational Workflows workshop (2020-09-02)

The WorkflowHub team organized the Workshop on FAIR Computational Workflows at the 19th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB 2020).

Organizers: Ignacio Eguinoa, Björn Grüning, Frederik Coppens, Carole Goble, Stian Soiland-Reyes, Salvador Capella-Gutierrez

Talks included:

The workshop organizers aim to make all slides available later.

BCC2020 CollaborationFest (2020-07-22 / 2020-07-23)

WorkflowHub was one of the working clusters at the BCC2020 CollaborationFest as part of Bioinformatics Community Conference 2020.

Activities included a Bring your own Workflow session to register more workflows at https://workflowhub.eu/.

Improving support for Galaxy workflows worked closely with Galaxy developers at BCC and the topic Exporting RO-Crate/BioCompute-Object packaged workflows from Galaxy which made a first release of the RO-Crate Python library and alignments with BioCompute Object.

Metadata and BioSchemas aligned and released BioSchemas ComputationalWorkflow profile 0.5 which was also aligned with the next version of RO-Crate.

IWC for Galaxy Workflows looked at API for workflow registration and created an open source license drop-down list for workflows.

COVID-19 BioHackathon (2020-04-05 / 2020-04-11)

WorkflowHub was one of the topics at the Virtual COVID-19 BioHackathon, attracting more than 30 developers. The participants also collaborated with the Workflows and FAIR Data topics.

Thanks to the collaborative effort the WorkflowHub could be launched early at https://covid19.workflowhub.eu/ in a "pre-beta" stage. The COVID-19 workflows registered at the hackathon now appear as part of https://workflowhub.eu/
