-------
Overview
-------
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.

SWPM'12 follows on from two successful editions, co-located with the
International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC). The workshop has the
following complementary objectives:

(1) to explore the opportunities offered by the Semantic Web
technologies in the context of the management and exploitation of
provenance.

(2) to explore the role of provenance in real-world Semantic Web
applications.

Additionally, we will organize in this edition a panel on PROV-DM, the
provenance model that is currently being developed by the W3C
provenance working group and which is on the W3C recommendation
track. The aim is to discuss and to identify the opportunities PROV-DM
presents in leveraging semantic web applications.

-----
TOPICS
-----
The workshop solicits the submission of original research papers
dealing with analytical, theoretical, and practical aspects of
provenance management using Semantic Web.

- Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
- Use of provenance information in real-world applications
- Reasoning with provenance for assessing trustworthiness,
    reliability, and quality of data
- Large scale storage and efficient querying of provenance
- Interoperability and propagation of provenance across applications
- Provenance infrastructure for eScience, social media, business, Web
    applications, and scientific discourse
- Tools for visualizing and browsing provenance information
- Provenance summarization to aid usability and scalability

----------------
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
----------------
We invite full research and experience papers (up to 12 pages) and
short papers (up to 6 pages) describing research in progress.

We also encourage the submission of demos of prototypes and working
systems (4 pages).

All papers must be formatted using LNCS and should be submitted using
easychair.
