Provenance XG Tcon Agenda for March 12

All:

In a few days, it will be 6 months that this group started its  
activities.  We have been very productive, and our wiki contains very  
useful pointers and documents [1].  We have an on-line paper  
collection and a compilation of surveys and relevant meetings [2].  We  
have identified a set of key dimensions for provenance [3].  We have  
developed about 30 use cases [4,5] in a variety of contexts.  We have  
a broad set of requirements derived from those use cases [6].  We are  
currently reviewing prior work on provenance in that context, with  
thematic discussions at our weekly telecons [7].

At this point, other groups are starting to request that we report on  
our activities to date.  It is also a good time to plan ahead to make  
sure our final products will be a useful legacy and will lay the path  
to next steps.

In this week's telecon I propose that we step back from our current  
activities and consider a few general points:

- is our wiki organized in a way that is accessible and informative to  
us but more importantly to others
- our first deliverable: a synthesis of the requirements for  
provenance using three mega use cases (Paul Groth will be leading a  
more detailed discussion on this on March 19th)
- our next deliverable: what should we be doing to prepare for it as  
we go through the thematic discussions [7]?
- should we have an agreed upon working definition of provenance?
- we should have a set of slides to be used to present the group's  
activities.  I assembled a draft at http://www.isi.edu/~gil/docs/W3C-ProvenanceOverview-March2010.pdf 
  and would like to collect your feedback
- what may be the best use of our face to face meeting?
- do we need to adjust our planned activities or change our process?

There is much to discuss, so I hope we can make good use of IRC and  
everyone can contribute suggestions and ideas.  Would someone please  
volunteer to be scribe?


*****IMPORTANT: NOTE THE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME CHANGE IN THE US ON  
MARCH 14, IN (MOST OF) EUROPE ON MARCH 28 *****  Therefore, for our  
telecons on March 19 and March 26 the time difference between US and  
Europe will be 1 hour less than it currently is.  Check your local  
times for those two weeks at http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?month=3&day=19&year=2010&hour=11&min=0&sec=0&p1=43 
.


Looking forward to the discussion on Friday!

Yolanda
