Call for Participation: Provenance Hackathon at IPAW 2010

What?
The provenance community has built a range of infrastructure for 
recording and querying provenance, which has increased in capabilities 
and maturity over time. However, there has been much less focus on 
realizing end-user applications of provenance. The Provenance Hackathon 
aims is to see whether we can quickly build end-user applications that 
demonstrate the unique benefits of provenance using existing infrastructure.

Who?
To foster cross-collaboration and to get things done, we hope to have 
two types of attendees, app hackers and infrastructure hackers. App 
hackers have experience in building end user applications (web apps, 
iphone apps, android apps, desktop apps,...), infrastructure hackers 
have experience in a particular provenance infrastructure. This is a way 
for an app hacker to get direct help with a given provenance 
infrastructure and a way for the infrastructure hackers to help someone 
get to know their infrastructure. Alternatively, we also allow you to 
work on your own.

Win!
A panel of judges will rate the hackathon apps focusing on their use of 
provenance and all around coolness. $250 dollars in prizes will be 
handed out.

When and Where?
June 14, 2010 collocated with IPAW starting at 10 am. Food and drinks 
will be provided throughout the day.

Sign-up!
Send email to Paul Groth (pgroth@few.vu.nl <mailto:pgroth@few.vu.nl>) 
with your hacker type and a couple of keywords. If you already have a 
team let me know that as well.

Sponsor
The Provenance Hackathon is sponsored by LarKC: The Large Knowledge 
Collider project, which is developing a platform for massive distributed 
incomplete reasoning.
