Task management systems are crucial tools in modern organizations, by simplifying the coordination of teams and their work. Those tools were developed mainly for task scheduling, assignment, follow-up, and accountability. On the other hand, scientific workflow systems also appeared to help putting together a set of computational processes through the pipeline of inputs and outputs from each, creating in the end a more complex processing workflow. However, there is sometimes a lack of solutions that combine both manually operated tasks with automatic processes, in the same workflow system.

TASKA is a web-based platform that incorporates some of the best functionalities of both systems, addressing the collaborative needs of a task manager with well-structured computational pipelines.
The system is currently being used by EMIF (European Medical Information Framework) for the coordination of clinical studies.

A demo installation of TASKA is available online at https://bioinformatics.ua.pt/taska
