Call For Participation: Workshop on Provenance and Visualization (ProvViz) 

21 July 2021

(Part of the Provenance Week 2021 - fully online)


The aim of this workshop is to encourage exchange between the provenance and visualization communities. During the workshop, we will introduce the latest developments in provenance analysis from the visualization community, and try to address research challenges that are relevant for both communities. It is part of Provenance Week 2021, which is a fully online event.

All Provenance Week 2021 participants are welcome to join. There is an option to submit a one-page abstract before the workshop if you would like to propose a topic or research question to be discussed at the workshop.

- Abstract Submission deadline: June 8th, 2021
- Author Notification: June 22nd, 2021

The LNCS format is recommended and please select the "ProvViz" track (which will be set up soon) when submitting the abstract in EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pw2021)

The workshop lasts half a day (morning of 21 July 2021), and will start with a keynote by Bill Howe (please see the information below). After that, participants will form groups to discuss a particular area or research question based on their shared interest. Finally, each group will report back their discussion results and collaboration plan after the workshop.
