                 TaPP '11 Call for Papers
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         3rd USENIX Workshop on the Theory and Practice of Provenance 
(TaPP '11)
                    http://www.usenix.org/events/tapp11/

                                     June 20-22, 2011
                 Heraklion, Crete, Greece

                    Sponsored by USENIX

** Overview

With the deluge of digital data we are currently experiencing, it has 
become increasingly important to capture and understand the provenance 
of data. Provenance provides important documentation that is an 
essential part of the quality of data, and it is essential to the trust 
we put in, for example, the data we find on the Web and the data that is 
derived from scientific experiments.

The meeting is in Crete, the week after the Athens meeting of ACM SIGMOD 
(http://www.sigmod2011.org/index.shtml). Crete is a spectacular island 
with great beaches, scenery, and food.

** Topics and What to Submit

Submissions are solicited on any topic related to theoretical or 
practical aspects of provenance, including but not limited to: 
provenance in databases, workflows, programming languages, security, 
software engineering, or systems; provenance on the Web; or real-world 
applications of or requirements for provenance. The program committee 
very much wants to make this a workshop rather than a mini-conference. 
Therefore, in addition to papers describing original research, the 
committee welcomes any proposal that will make the workshop interactive 
and promote discussions, especially discussions across disciplines.

** The following are possible submissions:

* Short papers and vision papers describing challenges for provenance 
research and novel applications (4 pages maximum)
* Proposals for mini-tutorials on some aspect of provenance (4 pages 
maximum)
* Regular submissions describing original research (8 pages maximum)
* Other proposals (e.g., for panels or small discussion groups)

Besides regular presentations, we plan to hold a poster session where 
authors of accepted submissions will have the opportunity to discuss 
their work with the other workshop participants.

* Important Dates

     * Submissions due: April 8, 2011, 11:59 p.m. PDT
     * Notification to authors: May 9, 2011
     * Final paper files due: May 23, 2011

** How to Submit

Submissions will be received electronically via a Web form, which will 
be available here soon. The Web form will ask for contact information 
for the paper and will allow for the submission of your full paper file 
in PDF format. Please do not email submissions.

Papers should be formatted in two columns, using 10 point Times Roman 
type on 12 point leading, in a text block of 6.5" by 9". If you wish, 
you may use the LaTeX template found at 
http://www.usenix.org/events/samples/template.la and style file found at 
http://www.usenix.org/events/samples/usenix.sty or the RTF template 
found at http://www.usenix.org/events/samples/sample.rtf

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission 
of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or 
fraud. USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and 
journals, prohibits these practices and may take action against authors 
who have committed them. See the USENIX Conference Submissions Policy at 
http://www.usenix.org/events/submissionspolicy.html for details.
