Project Overview


The goal of this project is to develop a data infrastructure supporting sharing, reuse and reproducibility of data and models. The idea is to adopt the notion of scientific workflows as the basis to specify executable models, and create a common computational platform to design, annotate and reuse such workflows. This infrastructure will provide a common data infrastructure to all researchers in the Center for Computational Engineering & Sciences (CCES) (a.k.a. eScience Unicamp). The CCES scientists will test/apply the data and models used and/or produced by the Center in the infrastructure.
