CamBAfx is a workflow application designed for both researchers who use workflows to process data (consumers) and those who design them (designers). It provides a front-end (user\ud interface) optimized for data processing designed in a way familiar to consumers. The back-end\ud uses a pipeline model to represent workfl ows since this is a common and useful metaphor used\ud by designers and is easy to manipulate compared to other representations like programming\ud scripts. As an Eclipse Rich Client Platform application, CamBAfx’s pipelines and functions can\ud be bundled with the software or downloaded post-installation. The user interface contains all the\ud workfl ow facilities expected by consumers. Using the Eclipse Extension Mechanism designers\ud are encouraged to customize CamBAfx for their own pipelines. CamBAfx wraps a workfl ow\ud facility around neuroinformatics software without modifi cation. CamBAfx’s design, licensing\ud and Eclipse Branding Mechanism allow it to be used as the user interface for other software,\ud facilitating exchange of innovative computational tools between originating labs
