As mentioned at the end of today's meeting, Yolanda asked me to invite  
some guest participants in next week's teleconference (Feb. 26, 11am  
Eastern time US) who can discuss provenance in (and among) databases.   
They are:

1. Susan Davidson, University of Pennsylvania
   - focusing on provenance in scientific workflows and databases

2. Wang-Chiew Tan, University of California, Santa Cruz
   - focusing on provenance and annotation in databases and  
applications such as data integration

3. Peter Buneman, University of Edinburgh
   - focusing on provenance in curated databases, updates, and citation

The rough idea is for each of them to speak for 10-15 minutes and then  
open the floor to questions, much like today's discussion of OPM and  
last week's discussion on eGovernment.

Please let me know if you are curious about any specific aspects of  
provenance in databases and would like one of the guest speakers to
