Hello:

Early last year, the W3C Provenance Incubator Group [1] concluded its
work developing a road-map for provenance on the Web, and recommended
the creation of a Working Group to define a standard for the
interchange of provenance information.

Last week, the W3C management team approved the formation of the
Provenance Working Group [2]. The aim of the group is to support the
widespread publication and use of provenance on the Web through the
creation of a simple, extensible language to exchange provenance
information. This language will leverage Semantic Web standards and reflect
existing community developed vocabularies and ontologies.

We encourage you to join the Provenance Working Group and help define
this critical language for the Web.  More details on joining can be 
found at [4].
If you intend on contributing, please help us select a teleconference 
time and
first face-to-face meeting date [5].

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

regards,

Luc Moreau
