This tutorial will inform potential users of scientific workflows about different approaches to provenance and the trade-offs among them, so that they are able to make informed decisions when selecting or designing a provenance solution. The tutorial will also discuss uses of provenance that go beyond the ability to reproduce and share results. In particular, we will present recent techniques developed to enable knowledge re-use and to simplify the process of designing and refining workflows. Instructors will use the open-source [http://www.vistrails.org VisTrails] system and a series of examples from real applications to demonstrate how a provenance management platform can be used to streamline data analysis and visualization.

Provenance-Enabled Data Exploration and Visualization with VisTrails

by Juliana Freire, Emanuele Santos, and Claudio Silva

Tutorial given at the SciDAC Conference 2009

Summary

In this tutorial we discuss the benefits of provenance when combined with workflow systems to aid in data analysis and visualization. We show uses of provenance that go beyond the ability to reproduce and share results. In particular, we present recent techniques developed to enable knowledge re-use and to simplify the process of designing and refining workflows. Instructors will use the open-source VisTrails system and a series of examples from real applications to demonstrate how a provenance management platform can be used to streamline data analysis and visualization.
