USENIX Workshop on Provenance Call For Papers Now Available

The Call for papers for the 1st Workshop on the Theory and Practice of Provenance (TaPP '09) is now available. Please submit all work by December 5, 2008, 11:59 PST.

Provenance, or meta-information about computations, computer systems, database queries, scientific workflows, and so on, is emerging as a central issue in a number of disciplines. The TaPP workshop continues an informal series of workshops on Principles of Provenance organized in 2007–2008, which helped raise the profile of this area within diverse research communities, such as databases, security, and programming languages. We hope both to attract serious cross-disciplinary, foundational, and highly speculative research and to facilitate needed interaction with the broader systems community and with industry.

Suggested topics and submission guidelines are available here.

TaPP '09 will take place February 23, 2009, in San Francisco, CA.
