      Deadline Extended for Role of Semantic Web in Provenance 
Management (SWPM'10) Workshop


The Second International Workshop on Role of Semantic Web in Provenance 
Management (SWPM 2010)


      Co-located with ISWC'10, November 7 2010, Shanghai, China



Paper Submissions *September 4, 2010*

Workshop Date: November 7, 2010



SWPM'10 follows on from a very successful first edition, co-located with 
the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) in October, 2009.

The current Knowledge Economy is encouraging organizations and 
governments to publish and expose their data, make them accessible to 
the public and reusable for new, unanticipated purposes. Initiatives 
like the Linked Open Data (LOD)  and eScience have created a vast amount 
of information that can be leveraged by Semantic Web applications in a 
variety of real world scenarios. The importance of managing various 
forms of metadata has long been recognized as critical in the Semantic 
Web. In this workshop we focus specifically on metadata that describes 
the origins of the data, i.e. the provenance of data. Provenance 
metadata is essential to correctly interpret the results of a process 
execution, to validate data processing tools, to verify the quality of 
data, and to associate measures of trust to the data.

At the same time, the scale at which data across different domains (e.g. 
biomedical informatics, astronomy, oceanography and etc) is created 
along with the rapidly increasing LOD cloud mandates the processing and 
analysis of provenance metadata in a scalable way.

The SWPM workshop has two primary, and complementary, objectives:
(1) to explore the role of Semantic Web in addressing some of the 
critical challenges facing provenance management and
(2) to explore the role of provenance in real world Semantic Web 

Specifically, the workshop topics include:

1. Efficiently capturing, propagating and publishing provenance 
information as data is processed, fragmented and recombined across 
multiple applications on a Web scale.

2. Models and vocabularies for provenance management.

3. Tools leveraging the Semantic Web for visualization and browsing of 
provenance information.

4. Tools, applications and software frameworks for provenance 
exploitation,  processing and analysis.


Confirmed keynote speaker:

Deborah McGuinness, RPI, USA





Paper Submissions: September 4, 2010

Notification: September 24, 2010

Camera ready papers due: October 15, 2010

Workshop Date: November 7, 2010, Shanghai International Convention 
Center, 2727 Riverside Avenue, Pudong Shanghai, China


The workshop will solicit the submission of original research papers 
dealing with analytical, theoretical, and practical aspects of 
provenance management using Semantic Web. We also encourage authors to 
submit a shorter version of their original papers that are being 
submitted to standard journals or conference proceedings.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

* Representation models for provenance, provenance ontologies

* Methods and tools for capturing provenance information, including 
automatic methods based on information extraction techniques and methods 
based on user-generated information

* Reasoning with provenance for assessing trustworthiness, reliability, 
and quality of data

* Methods and approaches that make use of provenance metadata

* Large scale storage and efficient querying of provenance

* Interoperability and propagation of provenance across applications

* Provenance Web infrastructure for eScience, business, and Web applications

* Role of Semantic Web provenance in scientific data management

* Role of provenance in social networks, social media and Web 2.0 

* Tools for visualizing and browsing provenance information

* Applications and case studies of provenance and the Semantic Web


We solicit:

- regular (6 pages) and short papers submissions of original, 
unpublished work. Submitted papers are peer-reviewed.

Papers are to be formatted according to the IEEE guidelines: 

- Demo papers. Authors should submite a one page summary describing the 
system and some screenshots or online demo for the reviewers to evaluate.

Accepted papers will be published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings and also 
made available to attendees on an electronic media (either CD or USB stick).
