The Second International Workshop on Role of Semantic Web in Provenance
Management (SWPM 2010)

Co-located with the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC'10),
November 7 2010, Shanghai, China

Paper Submissions *August 27, 2010*
Workshop Date: November 7, 2010


SWPM'10 follows on from a very successful first edition, co-located with the
International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) in October, 2009.

The current Knowledge Economy is encouraging organizations and governments
to publish and expose their data, make them accessible to the public and
reusable for new, unanticipated purposes. Initiatives like the Linked Open
Data (LOD)  and eScience have created a vast amount of information that can
be leveraged by Semantic Web applications in a variety of real world
scenarios. The importance of managing various forms of metadata has long
been recognized as critical in the Semantic Web.

In this workshop we focus specifically on metadata that describes the
origins of the data, i.e. the provenance of data. Provenance metadata is
essential to correctly interpret the results of a process execution, to
validate data processing tools, to verify the quality of data, and to
associate measures of trust to the data. At the same time, the scale at
which data across different domains (e.g. biomedical informatics, astronomy,
oceanography and etc) is created along with the rapidly increasing LOD cloud
mandates the processing and analysis of provenance metadata in a scalable

The SWPM workshop has two primary, and complementary, objectives:
(1) to explore the role of Semantic Web in addressing some of the critical
challenges facing provenance management and
(2) to explore the role of provenance in real world Semantic Web

Specifically, the workshop topics include:

1. Efficiently capturing, propagating and publishing provenance information
as data is processed, fragmented and recombined across
multiple applications on a Web scale.

2. Models and vocabularies for provenance management.

3. Tools leveraging the Semantic Web for visualization and browsing of
provenance information.

4. Tools, applications and software frameworks for provenance exploitation,
processing and analysis.

Keynote speaker:
Deborah McGuinness, RPI, USA

Paper Submissions: August 27, 2010
Notification: September 17, 2010
Camera ready papers due: October 15, 2010
Workshop Date: November 7, 2010, Shanghai International Convention Center,
2727 Riverside Avenue, Pudong Shanghai, China

The workshop will solicit the submission of original research papers dealing
with analytical, theoretical, and practical aspects of provenance management
using Semantic Web.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
* Representation models for provenance, provenance ontologies
* Methods and tools for capturing provenance information, including
automatic methods based on information extraction techniques and methods
based on user-generated information
* Reasoning with provenance for assessing trustworthiness, reliability, and
quality of data
* Methods and approaches that make use of provenance metadata
* Large scale storage and efficient querying of provenance
* Interoperability and propagation of provenance across applications
* Provenance Web infrastructure for eScience, business, and Web applications
* Role of Semantic Web provenance in scientific data management
* Role of provenance in social networks, social media and Web 2.0
* Tools for visualizing and browsing provenance information
* Applications and case studies of provenance and the Semantic Web

We solicit:

- regular (6 pages) and short papers submissions of original, unpublished
work. Submitted papers are peer-reviewed.
Papers are to be formatted according to the IEEE guidelines:
- Demo papers. Authors should submite a one page summary describing the
system and some screenshots or online demo for the reviewers to evaluate.

Accepted papers will be published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings (indexed by
DBLP among others) and also made available to attendees on an electronic
media (either CD or USB stick).
