Although aimed at proving the feasibility of applying Grid technologies for business information systems integration, we illustrate that this engine is also well-suited for scientific workflow execution, making standard WS-BPEL-based tooling accessible for scientific workflows. In this paper, we describe using the BIS-Grid engine for the execution of scientific workflows. This includes a differentiation of scientific and business workflows in general and an analysis of the suitability of the BISGrid infrastructure to execute scientific workflows. We propose reusable WS-BPEL patterns for typical scientific workflow activities whereas job submission is focused. Finally, we prospect our future work.} @COMMENTBibtex file generated on
