ProvenanceWeek will take place as a hybrid event on April 30-May 1. Following successful previous ProvenanceWeek events, this year’s instalment will again co-locate the IPAW and TaPP workshops in conjunction with WebConf 2023. IPAW and TaPP build on a successful history of provenance workshops that bring together researchers from a wide range of computer science fields including workflows, semantic web, databases, high performance computing, distributed systems, operating systems, programming languages, and software engineering, as well as researchers from other fields, such as biology and physics that have urgent provenance needs.
Provenance is increasingly important in data science, workflow systems, and many other areas, particularly to support transparency, accountability and explanations. By providing a record of the data creation process and of dependencies between data, provenance information is essential for tracing errors in transformed data back to erroneous inputs, access control, auditing, repeatability and reproducibility, evaluating data quality, and establishing ownership of data.
Happy Birthday W3C PROV! The W3C PROV standard is 10years old. As a part of ProvenanceWeek 2023, we will be celebrating the standards creation and impact. There will be cake.
The 2023 ACM Web Conference is an in-person conference with virtual components including live streaming of ceremonies and keynotes, access to pre-recorded videos of talks, and the Whova platform for interaction with all conference attendees.
All speakers and presenters participating in any way are expected to attend the conference in person. For exceptional reasons, if you are not able to attend in person to present, you may assign a proxy who must be in person.
We invite innovative and creative contributions, including papers outlining new formal approaches to provenance, innovative use of provenance, experience-based insights, and visionary ideas.
ProvenanceWeek will be held in conjunction with WebConf 2023 in Austin Texas on Sunday, April 30, and Monday, May 1, 2023.
All deadlines are end-of-day in the Anywhere on Earth (AoE) time zone.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format according to the ACM template published in the ACM guidelines, selecting the generic “sigconf” sample. The PDF files must have all non-standard fonts embedded. Workshop papers must be self-contained and in English. Papers should not exceed 12 pages in length (maximum 8 pages for the main paper content + maximum 2 pages for appendixes + maximum 2 pages for references).
Authors should indicate the track in the title (IPAW, TAPP, DEMO, POSTER or BEST)
Papers can be submitted to one of the following tracks:
In addition to regular research papers, we also encourage submissions of thefollowing flavors:
We also encourage the presentation of ongoing work as posters or demonstrations. Proposals for posters or demonstrations should be formatted and submitted as described above, with the following additional restrictions:
