I am Shamse Tasnim Cynthia, currently pursuing my M.Sc in Computer Science
at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, under the supervision of Dr.
Banani Roy. My current thesis work involves working on adaptive user
interfaces for Software Workflow Management Systems. It has been found that
existing SWFMSs do not provide special interaction techniques or visual
elements to assist with composing complex workflows and do not consider
scientists' preferences based on domain expertise, gender, or other
individual preferences. To overcome this, we want to investigate how user
preferences will affect modelling in different environments. In this
regard, I need user data to analyze user preferences and investigate usage
logs to refine the user model.
Galaxy, being the most popular SWfMS which is installed on over 168
research servers worldwide, certainly holds a huge amount of user data that
can be used in my research.
Therefore, it will be very helpful for me if I can get the data to complete
my research work and it will be a great opportunity for me to contribute to
the Software Workflow developing community.
