The Third International Provenance and Annotation Workshop
(IPAW2010) builds on the success of previous workshops in Salt Lake
City (2008), Chicago (2006, 2002), and Edinburgh (2003). It was held
during June 1516, in Troy, New York, at Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute. IPAW 2010 brought together computer scientists from
dirent areas and provenance users to discuss open problems related
to the provenance of computational and non-computational artifacts.
A total of 59 people attended the workshop. These attendees came
from the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands,
Germany, Brazil, and Japan. 36 submissions were received in response
to the initial call for papers. Each of these submissions was
reviewed by at least three reviewers. Overall, 7 submissions were
accepted as full papers, 11 were accepted as medium-length papers, 7
were accepted as demo papers, and 6 were accepted as short papers.
In addition, a follow-up call for late-breaking work in the form of
a poster and abstract was issued, which resulted in 10 additional
contributions being made. The workshop was organized as a single
track event with paper, poster, and demo sessions interleaved.
Professor Susan Davidson (University of Pennsylvania) presented a
keynote address on provenance and privacy.
