Hi all,
 std apologies for cross postings. 
Final extension. You are warmly invited to contribute to the SWPM 
workshop -- we plan to have a very stimulating and interactive day of 
discussions!

Thanks, -Paolo

     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)
                   http://wiki.knoesis.org/index.php/SWPM-2010
     Co-located with ISWC'10, November 7 2010, Shanghai, China

OBJECTIVES

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 applications. 

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.

IMPORTANT DATES:
---------------------------------------------------
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
 
TOPICS FOR PAPER SUBMISSION
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 applications
* Tools for visualizing and browsing provenance information
* Applications and case studies of provenance and the Semantic Web


SUBMISSIONS FORMAT
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: http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/authors/transjnl/index.html.
- 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).
