Call For Papers

Workshop Overview
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

Submission Instructions
Papers should be submitted as PDF files to to the TaPP track.

Submitted papers must be no longer than 4 pages, formatted according to the ACM SIGPLAN two-column format. Instructions and templates are available at An extra 4 pages of supporting material may be submitted, but the reviewers will not be obliged to read them.

Papers submitted to TaPP '16 must not be published or under review elsewhere.

As in previous years, accepted TaPP papers will be open access, and will be available on the USENIX TaPP '16 Papers Web site. Authors retain copyright to their submissions and full-length papers based on TaPP contributions may be submitted to other venues.
