The Common Workflow Language (CWL) is a community-developed specification for interoperable scientific workflows, supported by multiple workflow engine vendors and open source projects. Started as a third-year project and further developed as part of the BioExcel project, the eScience Lab have developed the CWL Viewer to visualize these workflows, show their annotations and composition.

CWL Viewer has become the de facto standard web visualization tool for workflows within the larger CWL community - the list of known workflows shows more than 200 individual contributions.
