Provenance: The Bridge Between Experiments and Data
Miles, Simon and Groth, Paul and Deelman, Ewa and Vahi, Karan and Mehta, Gaurang and Moreau, Luc (2008) Provenance: The Bridge Between Experiments and Data. Computing in Science and Engineering, 10 (3). pp. 38-46.
Current scientific applications are often structured as workflows and rely on workflow systems to compile abstract experiment designs into enactable workflows that utilise the best available resources. The automation of this step and of the workflow enactment, hides the details of how results have been produced. Knowing how compilation and enactment occurred allows results to be reconnected with the experiment design. We investigate how provenance helps scientists to connect their results with the actual execution that took place, their original experiment and its inputs and parameters.
