Call for Papers

TaPP 2016 continues the tradition of providing a genuine workshop environment for discussing and developing new ideas and exploring connections between disciplines and between academic research on provenance and practical applications.

We invite innovative and creative contributions, including papers outlining new challenges for provenance research, promising formal approaches to provenance, innovative use of provenance, experience-based insights, resourceful experiments, and visionary (and possibly risky) ideas. Proposals for tutorials, panel or group discussions, reports on early stage research, or any other activities that will create a successful workshop are encouraged.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Provenance management system prototypes and commercial solutions
  • Provenance analytics, querying, and reasoning about provenance
  • Visualizing provenance information
  • Performance aspects of provenance capture, storage, and analytics
  • Standardization of provenance models and representations
  • Security and privacy implications of provenance
  • Applications of provenance in real life settings
  • Human interaction with provenance
  • Retroactive reconstruction of provenance
  • Using provenance for evaluating data quality and trust in data
  • Novel methods for capturing provenance
  • Integrating provenance information
  • Interoperability among provenance-aware systems
  • Provenance discovery

Papers must be:

As in previous years, contributions to TaPP will be published online as open access; authors retain copyright to their submissions and full-length papers based on TaPP contributions may be submitted to other venues.
