IMPACT Final Conference – The IMPACT Interoperability Framework


Clemens Neudecker presenting the IMPACT Interoperability Framework

Clemens Neudecker presented the IMPACT Interoperability Framework which brings together project tools and data. He introduced workflows in the project and the various building blocks used.

Clemens pointed out that there are still places still available at a free IMPACT toolhack day, 14th – 15th November 2011 at the University of Manchester.


The myGrid team produces and uses a suite of tools designed to “help e-Scientists get on with science and get on with scientists”. The tools support the creation of e-laboratories and have been used in domains as diverse as systems biology, social science, music, astronomy, multimedia and chemistry. myExperiment makes it easy to find, use and share scientific workflows and other Research Objects, and to build communities.


Taverna is an open source and domain-independent Workflow Management System – a suite of tools used to design and execute scientific workflows and aid in silico experimentation. Taverna has been created by the myGrid team and funded through the OMII-UK. The project has guaranteed funding till 2014. The Taverna suite is written in Java and includes the Taverna Engine (used for enacting workflows) that powers both the Taverna Workbench (the desktop client application) and the Taverna Server (which allows remote execution of workflows). Taverna is also available as a Command Line Tool for a quick execution of workflows from a terminal.
