This year, TAPP is co-located with The British Database Conference (BICOD), July 6–8, 2015. Renee Miller, University of Toronto, will give a joint TAPP/BICOD keynote address on July 8th.
We gratefully acknowledge support from the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) for this event. Thanks to their generous support, we will be able to offer free registration to up to 6 PhD students at Scottish institutions for TaPP/BICOD.

Provenance provides needed insight into the origins and derivation of data, as well as formal documentation that can be instrumental in data quality assessment, program debugging, and search. Research topics of relevance to TAPP span the entire metadata lifecycle: From modeling to capture, storage, usage, querying and mining, to security and interoperable exchange across systems. TAPP also invites application-oriented contributions on provenance-aware systems and other practical usage of provenance.
In keeping with its successful tradition, TaPP '15 is a workshop, as opposed to a mini-conference. We aim to provide a platform for presenting and discussing a range of fresh ideas, and actively encourage inter-disciplinary work beyond the confines of the data management community.
What to Submit
Contributions are typically four and never more than six pages long. They should describe challenges for provenance research, brief descriptions of new applications, pie-in-the sky research ideas, and anything else that will help engage the researchers’ minds. While brief and readable descriptions of research are encouraged, recycled conference submissions are strongly discouraged. Contributions are collected into online proceedings, hosted by USENIX and indexed by DBLP, Google Scholar, etc.
We expect the program to include a mixture of presentations and discussions. Authors should expect ample opportunity to present their ideas at the workshop.
NEW: In addition to papers, we anticipate inviting posters for a dedicated poster session, possibly jointly with BICOD.
Submissions should be no more than four pages in ACM SIGPLAN (two-column) format. If supporting material is needed, an extra four pages may be submitted, but the committee will not be obliged to read them.
All contributions should be submitted online at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tapp15. As in previous years, accepted TaPP papers will be open access, and will be available on the USENIX TaPP '15 Papers Web site.
