title:An end-user guided approach to extend systems to capture data provenance with PML using Inference Web tools

abstract: Data provenance is a critical feature that modern scientific systems need to support end users in understanding generated results. The Proof-Markup Language (PML) offers a mechanism to encode data provenance in a distributed manner and in a way that is amenable for use on the Web. The CI-Miner approach consists in creating ontology-based abstract workflows that model the essential data transformations that a system carries out. These abstract workflows are useful to understand and create agreement among an end-user community about the behavior that a system should have, and to further use this consensus of understanding to generate wrapper code that can be used to instrument corresponding system components to capture provenance encoded in PML. Furthermore, a visualization tool for PML is used to support the analysis of the provenance encoded in PML. This tutorial highlights two tools: - WDO-It! is a java-based desktop application used to create ontology-based workflows encoded in OWL, and to guide the generation of data annotator wrapper code that is used to instrument systems; - Probe-It! is a java-based web tool that is used to visualize PML encodings. At the end of the workshop we expect the following two outcomes: 1) End-users will have a clear understanding about the data transformation process that a system carries out to decide what is relevant and how to instrument the system to generate provenance in PML, and 2) end-users will have a friendly way of inspecting and analyzing provenance encoded in PML.
