Research Data Provenance IG

Chair (s): 
Case Statement: 
IG Established
 

Tracking provenance for research data is vital to science and scholarship, providing answers to common questions researchers pose when sharing and exchanging data: Where did it come from? Who modified it? Is this copy the same as the copy I deposited? In what way is it the same? How do I resolve discrepancies or anomalies?

This group focuses on the comparison and evaluation of models for data provenance. It is concerned with questions of data origins, maintenance of identity through the data lifecycle, and how we account for data modification. Objectives of this group include: recommending general and expressive frameworks for documenting research data transactions proposing syntheses of complementary provenance views, and relating data provenance to problems of scientific equivalence and the assessment of data quality.

The Research Data Provenance group anticipates potential intersections with the Data Citation, Data Foundation and Terminology, and Metadata Standards working groups as well as the Data in Context interest group.

Break-Out Session on Data Citation today at Break-Out 4, 12:00-13:30, commonwealth B

We are looking forward to seeing many of you in today's break-out
session of the Working Group on Dynamic Data Citation, which will take
place from 12:00-13:30 in Commonwealth B.

We will provide a quick overview of the recommendations, a list of all
adoptions so far and then focus on new adoptions, specifically

- No-SQL (MongoDB) for CKAN
- Dendro Data Repository
- OpenEO: Earth Observation Data Center (EODC)

and discussing FAQs on the recommendations.

Researching a blockchain based provenance system

Hello everyone,

I am a Graduate student at the University of Amsterdam, and am currently finishing my Master’s degree in Cyber Security. The topic that I am researching is data traceability of satellite data. I work with Airbus to research how viable it is to trace satellite data, as it is processed from raw data (level 0) to usable data (level 3 or 4) that for instance, weather websites use. So at each step of the processing phase, I need to be able to verify that it originated from the previous dataset.
