Provenance-Enabled Automatic Data Publishing [chapter]

James Frew, Greg Janée, Peter Slaughter
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The ES3 system can capture the provenance of such unstructured computations and make it available so that the results of such computations can be evaluated in the overall context of their inputs, implementation  ...  We describe a system that, given the request to publish a particular computational artifact, traverses that artifact's provenance and applies rule-based tests to each of the artifact's computational antecedents  ...  Of course there will be situations where step 4 fails to automatically render an object fit for publication-for example, publication may require the availability of antecedent files or programs that have  ...

Efficient querying of distributed provenance stores

Ashish Gehani, Minyoung Kim, Tanu Malik
2010 Proceedings of the 19th ACM International Symposium on High Performance Distributed Computing - HPDC '10  
In contrast, we are developing a completely decentralized system with each computer maintaining the authoritative repository of the provenance gathered on it.  ...  Current projects that automate the collection of provenance information use a centralized architecture for managing the resulting metadata -that is, provenance is gathered at remote hosts and submitted  ...  Users can then be provided a mechanism for transferring the provenance metadata when a file moves from one computer to another.  ...

PASSing the provenance challenge

David A. Holland, Margo I. Seltzer, Uri Braun, Kiran-Kumar Muniswamy-Reddy
2008 Concurrency and Computation  
This prototype was intended to demonstrate automatic provenance collection and storage of provenance within the file system.  ...  We present a brief overview of the PASS prototype and a discussion of the evolution of the query model that we developed for the challenge.  ...  INTRODUCTION A provenance-aware storage system, or PASS, is a storage system in which provenance is handled seamlessly and transparently to the user.  ...

Looking Inside the Black-Box: Capturing Data Provenance Using Dynamic Instrumentation [chapter]

Manolis Stamatogiannakis, Paul Groth, Herbert Bos
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Hence, we can track provenance for a variety of well-known applications. Because DataTracker looks inside the executing program, it captures high-fidelity and accurate data provenance.  ...  Knowing the provenance of a data item helps in ascertaining its trustworthiness. Various approaches have been proposed to track or infer data provenance.  ...  By intervention, we mean the modifications of a program or computational environment to capture provenance.  ...

The Foundations for Provenance on the Web

Luc Moreau
2010 Foundations and Trends® in Web Science  
A powerful argument for provenance is that it can help make systems transparent, so that it becomes possible to determine whether a particular use of information is appropriate under a set of rules.  ...  For instance, provenance enables the reproducibility of scientific results; provenance is necessary to track attribution and credit in curated databases; and, it is essential for reasoners to make trust  ...  for providing feedback on this survey.  ...
