Dear Sir or Madam,

Could you please help me post this CFP to the mail list of ESIP? Thank you.


Special Issue
IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing
Call for Papers
Deadline for submission of manuscripts: 30 September 2012
Geoscience Data Provenance

  Today, there is an increasing demand to capture provenance in the whole
life cycle of remotely sensed geoscience data from acquisition, archival,
processing, distribution, to applications and make the provenance
information available to user community. The complete and accurate
provenance information can bring transparency to data sharing and
geoscientific processing, give credit to data and algorithm contributors,
make scientific results reproducible and trustworthy, and support advanced
data quality analysis. Motivation for capturing and sharing provenance also
comes from the distributed data and information infrastructure that has
been benefitting the Earth science community in the last decade, such as
Spatial Data and Information Infrastructure, e-Science, and
Cyberinfrastructure. Traditionally, Earth science data products are
produced in the scientific data centers with pre-established processing
steps or workflows. In the distributed information infrastructure, data and
high-level information products are generated, transformed, published, and
disseminated frequently by a broad community of scientific users. In such a
data-rich production environment, provenance information is even more
important, since scientists rely on the provenance to understand and
determine the reliability and usability of a scientific product generated
from distributed services and inputs provided by various providers.

  Contributions for this special issue are welcome from the research
community. The technology covered by this special issue will include latest
developments of provenance awareness in all aspects of remote sensing data
archiving, information management, search and access, and specialized
services for data users, such as on-demand processing and visualization.
Enabling technologies such as data management, Cyberinfrastructure,
workflow, high performance computing, error propagation, Semantic Web,
evolving standards, security, and Web services will be involved. The
emphasis will be on the approaches using those technologies to address such
issues as provenance capture, representation, storage, query, and usage for
understanding, management, traceability, and quality analysis of the
diverse Earth remote sensing data and processing flow. The special issue
will include, but not be limited to, the following set of topics:

 1. Provenance-aware geoscientific data system architecture;
 2. Geospatial provenance models for heterogeneous geoscientific data;
 3. Provenance and geospatial metadata;
 4. Provenance and geoscientific workflow;
 5. Provenance and Geo-Cyberinfrastructure;
 6. Provenance capturing in Earth science data and sensor systems;
 7. Geoscience data provenance management including storage, query, and
dissemination of the provenance;
 8. Interoperability approaches for sharing geoscience data provenance;
 9. Geoscience data provenance visualization and navigation;
 10. Provenance applications in geoscience such as geoscientific data
quality evaluation and trust analysis.

Paper submission deadline:
30 September 2012
