Even though I have a background from academia, I haven't read too many research papers and especially not recently. That's one reason why it was especially fun to be on the program committee for papers to WWW'2007. I read eight papers and learned a lot about new and interesting ideas. Afterwards I heard that only one of the papers I read was accepted. I was positive to most of my eight, but the level was obviously very high and only my very favorite made it. It's called "Introduction and Evaluation of Martlet, a Scientific Workflow Language for Abstracted Parallelisation" by Daniel Goodman.
