The 2nd International Workshop on FAIR Containerized Computational Software, hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), will take place online from December 5-7, 2023.
The purpose of the workshop is:
- establish fields in a manifest file accompanying each containerized software tool so that the tools can be chained into workflows and executed in distributed computational environments,
- summarize best practices for containerization of algorithms and interfaces between containerized algorithms and datasets in heterogeneous storage environments,
- explore application programming interfaces (APIs) for finding containerized software tools and container-based workflows in registries, and
- support executions of container-based workflows in a variety of workflow engines.
Suggested attendees: Experts from academia, industry, and government who have been working with software containers, heterogeneous bioimage file formats and storage mechanisms, scientific workflows (representations and engines), distributed computational and storage environments, and application programming interfaces to registries of container-based workflows and individual containerized tools. The workshop will provide a comprehensive forum on the topics of software containerization, execution on advanced hardware, container-based workflow management, big image data management, web technologies for dynamic content creation, and web plugins for image annotation creation.
