Regrets --
I'm taking the holiday today (well, part of it).
Regret I can't make this one, but forwarded to tetherless world email list. I know there is interest and related work going on here, though I don't know if the email will reach anyone in time for the call. We are on holiday today (President's Day) in the US.

Dear all,

The discussion of roles in PROV (http://www.w3.org/TR/prov-primer/#roles-1) makes me wonder whether the ability to encode roles that have specific time durations and other dependencies might be useful in this provenance context.  Silvio Peroni and I have developed ontologies for this purpose, for example PRO, the Publishing Roles Ontology, using a common time-indexed situation ontology modelling pattern that is described in the attached presentation.  We offer this as a contribution to the discussion.

The other issue that I think needs clarification at the beginning of the discussion is the relationship between PROV and other provenance vocabularies, including the Open Provenance Model from Luc Moreau and colleagues (2009) (http://openprovenance.org/), the Open Provenance Model Vocabulary (http://open-biomed.sourceforge.net/opmv/ns.html) that Jun Zhao developed from this in 2010, the Provenance Vocabulary (http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/trdf/index.php?title=Guide_to_the_Provenance_Vocabulary) from Jun Zhao and Olav Hartig (2010), and the current work on provenance in workflows by Matthew Gamble, Jun Zhao, Graham Klyne and colleagues in the Workflows for Ever EU Project (http://www.wf4ever-project.org/).  The paper Reflections on Provenance Ontology Encodings by Deborah McGuinness and colleagues, available at http://tw.rpi.edu/web/doc/Reflections_on_Provenance_Ontology_Encodings, is partially relevant here.

I look forward to joining the conference call this afternoon.

Kind regards,

Paul Groth (VU University Amsterdam) is the co-chair of the W3C provenance working group
Yolanda Gil (University of Southern California) is the co-editor of the PROV Primer

In this talk, we provide an update of the developments of the a series of W3C recommendations for enabling provenance interoperability on the web. We give a brief overview of the various specifications and describe the core data model that enables exchange. We are looking for feedback and interested users.

2. Use case status

2.1. Enhance Drug-mechanism Knowledge in Drug Product Labels
2.2. Defining core metadata for describing biomedical investigations
2.3. Mining Treatment Outcomes

3. Any other business.
