IPAW 2010 Call for Late Breaking Contributions

Overview

Interest in and needs for provenance are growing as data
proliferates. Data is increasing in a wide array of application
areas, including scientific workflow systems, logical reasoning
systems, text extraction, social media, and linked data. As data
increases and as applications become more hybrid and distributed
in nature, there is increasing interest in where data came from
and how it was produced in order to understand when and how to
rely on it.

Provenance, or the origin or source of something, can capture a
wide range of information. This includes, for example, who or
what generated the data, history of data stewardship, manner of
manufacture, place and time of manufacture, and so on. Annotation
is tightly connected with provenance since data is often
commented on, described, and referred to. These descriptions or
annotations are often critical to the understandability,
reusability, and reproducibility of data and thus are often
critical components of today’s data and knowledge systems.

Provenance has been recognized to be important in a wide range of
areas including databases, workflows, knowledge representation
and reasoning, and digital libraries. Thus, many disciplines have
proposed a wide range of provenance models, techniques, and
infrastructure for encoding and using provenance. One timely
challenge for the broader community is to understand the range of
strengths and weaknesses of different approaches sufficiently to
find and use the best models for any given situation. This also
comes at a time when a new incubator group has been formed at the
World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to provide a state of the art
understanding and develop a roadmap in the area of provenance for
Semantic Web technologies, development, and possible
standardization.

Late Breaking Contributions

IPAW is accepting late breaking contributions to the poster and
demo session. Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished
work for potential presentation and publication in IPAW
proceedings. We welcome three kinds late breaking of submissions:

Poster only submission: Please submit a PDF write-up that up that
complies with LNCS specifications
<http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0>.
The submission should include one or more well articulated use
cases clearly showing the need for provenance.  The provenance
requirements need to be explicitly stated in your submission.
You may include a description of your solution to the provenance
encoding if you have it but a use case showing one or more
aspects of the need for provenance is a welcome contribution.

Demonstration only submission: Please submit a PDF write-up that
up that complies with LNCS specifications
<http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0>.
The submission needs to include one or more legible screen shots
and a description of the demonstration scenario.

Demonstration AND poster submission: Please follow instructions
for demonstration only submission but include that you would like
to have a poster at IPAW as well.

Please include Poster, Demo, or Dual in the submission title so
it is clear which submission type you desire. Accepted
submissions will be included in the online proceedings and also
will be allocated up to two pages in the LCNS publication
following the conference. The submission page is available at:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ipaw2010.

Submissions are due by May 24, however we encourage early
submissions, especially if you the presenting author needs a
letter of invitation in order to apply for a visa to travel to
the US.

Workshop Topics

This workshop builds on a successful line of provenance and
annotation workshops (http://www.ipaw.info/). It aims to bring
together a broad range of provenance researchers and users in
order to discuss progress in and open research problems related
to provenance and annotation. Topics of interest include but are
not limited to:

* Provenance models
* Architectures and data management techniques for provenance data
* Provenance requirements and use cases
* Provenance-aware reasoning
* Provenance-aware Semantic Web applications and technologies
* Presentation techniques and tools for provenance data
* Security and privacy issues for provenance data
* Provenance integration and interoperability
* Provenance for social media
* Provenance for linked data
* Query languages and query processing techniques for provenance data
* Storage and query interfaces for workflow provenance
* Provenance analysis, mining and visualization
* Provenance systems, functionality, protocols, implementation
* Provenance, business processes and compliance
* Provenance prototypes and commercial solutions
* Provenance in scientific publications
* Provenance and its relationship to annotation and metadata
* Provenance for digital libraries
