> (1) Background
> Data products are increasingly being produced and “mashed-up” by the  
> composition of services and data supplied by multiple parties using  
> a variety of databases, data analysis, management, and collection  
> technologies. This approach is particular evident in e-Science where  
> scientists combine sensor data and shared Web-accessible databases  
> using a variety of local and remote data analysis routines to  
> produce experimental results, which they published and get reused by  
> other scientists. In such environments, provenance (also referred to  
> as audit trail, lineage, and pedigree) plays a critical role as it  
> enables users to understand, verify, reproduce, and ascertain the  
> quality of data products.
> An important challenge in the context of these compositional  
> applications is how to integrate the provenance data produced by  
> different systems to be able to construct the full provenance of  
> complex data products across the different systems involved in their  
> derivation. To that end, a common data model for provenance, the  
> Open Provenance Model (OPM), was proposed to help ease the  
> integration of provenance data across the heterogeneous environments  
> used for running such applications.
> To evaluate the suitability of OPMand gain practical experience with  
> interoperability issues related to provenance across heterogeneous  
> systems, 14 teams from across the world have participated in the  
> Third Provenance Challenge since March 2nd. During this challenge,  
> teams have exchanged provenance data between their provenance  
> systems using OPM. They have developed OPM serializations in both  
> RDF and XML, ran provenance queries over the exchanged data, and  
> began to create common tools for use with OPM.
> (2) Topics
> The aim of the special issue is to provide an archival view of the  
> state-of-the-art of both practical and theoretical issues related to  
> provenance interoperability across systems using the Open Provenance  
> Model.
> We therefore encourage submissions in the following areas:
> * Theoretical considerations pertaining to the Open Provenance Model
> * Semantic inter-operability with the Open Provenance Model
> * System issues and OPM (incl, integration, performance, storage)
> * Provenance models and comparisons with OPM
> * Real applications making use of OPM; usability of provenance
> * Open Provenance Model and databases
> * Domain specific specialisations of the Open Provenance Model
> * Query languages for OPM
> * Interoperable queries over the Open Provenance Model
> * Provenance tools that use OPM
> (3) Instructions to the authors
> Two types of submissions are permitted:
> * short papers should have a maximum length of 6 pages, whereas
> * long papers should be limited to 12 pages.
> Articles should be submitted electronically via the journal’s online  
> submission and peer-review systems at http://ees.elsevier.com/fgcs/.  
> LATEX and Word format are acceptable. Formatting instructions are  
> available from the submission page.
> (4) Tentative Schedule
> 1. Submission deadline: December 15 2009
> 2. Notification of acceptance: March 30 2010
> 3. Camera ready version: May 15 2010
> The schedule may be subject to revisions. Prospective authors are  
> invited to make themselves known to the editors ahead of time to  
> facilitate the harmonization of the issue and ensure that the  
> authors will be informed of any change.
