The workshop took place on Wednesday, 11 November 2020 and the program featured an invited keynote by Prof. Michela Taufer (UTK), entitled “In Situ Data Analytics for Next Generation Molecular Dynamics Workflows”. The program also featured talks from 8 research papers (accepted after a rigorous review process where each paper received at least three reviews). The proceedings include the eight full papers accepted and presented at the workshop.

We would like to thank the authors, the presenters, the general chair, the steering committee, the program committee, and the SC20 workshop chairs – without their excellent work and contributions WORKS would not be successful.
