The goal of the workshop is to identify usage scenarios, open problems and ambitious goals for research concerning provenance in eScience and scientific data management. Presentations need not be on technical research contributions, but should introduce or clarify issues concerning provenance, accountability, integrity, and data quality in a relevant discipline. Such information would be important raw material to help computer science researchers and eScience applications developers focus on relevant problems.


This meeting was webcast live.

For the majority of the meetings that we broadcast, we keep a copy (for a limited period) and make it available from the event material page. This copy of the webcast is normally available the day after the meeting.

Target Audience

The workshop organisers wish to involve participants representing a variety of perspectives:

  • scientific disciplines in which sophisticated database, Grid, or eScience technology is already in widespread use (such as physics, astronomy and biology)
  • disciplines where such technology is not widely used but conceivably will be in the future, and
  • researchers and developers working on provenance and scientific data management or eScience technology


This event is provisionally scheduled to start at 09:00 Monday 20 April 2009 and close at 17:00 on Monday 20 April 2009.
