The ProvenanceWeek will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA on July 19-22 2021. Following successful previous ProvenanceWeek events, this year’s installment will again co-locate the IPAW and TaPP workshops as well as host the first Workshop on Provenance and Visualization. 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.
Because of the COVID 19 situation, ProvenanceWeek 2020 was held as a 1-day virtual event with brief teaser talks. ProvenanceWeek 2021 will bring together authors of the 2020 papers as well as co-locating the 2021 installment of TaPP and presentations by IPAW authors for a 2021 submission round.
Due to the uncertainty of the COVID situation in 2021, authors that cannot attend Provenance Week 2021 due to any reason will be allowed to participate and present their papers virtually. As a contingency plan, if an in-person event is not possible, then ProvenanceWeek 2021 will be held as a fully virtual event.
Provenance is increasingly important in data science, cloud computing, workflow systems, and many other areas. 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.

We are glad to announce that Paolo Missier will be IPAW’s keynote speaker. Paolo Missier is Full Professor in Large-scale Information Management with the School of Computing, Newcastle University, UK, and a Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute for Data Science and AI. He joined academia in 2011, after a prior career as a Research Scientist at Bell Communications Research, USA (1994-2001), and as a Research Fellow at the University of Manchester, School of Computer Science (2004-2011) where he also obtained his PhD in 2008. Most of his research contributions have been in the area of scientific workflows for e-science and on data provenance, including contributions to the W3C PROV Working group (2011-2013). He has recently launched new research efforts in two new areas: the study of fairness in Machine Learning, and applications of (Scalable) Data Science to enable preventive, predictive, and personalised healthcare. In Newcastle, Paolo leads the School’s post-graduate module on scalable technologies for Big Data Analytics.
