Streamlining Data Exploration and Visualization through Scientific Workflows and Provenance
- Juliana Freire
- Claudio Silva
- Emanuele Santos
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 VisTrails system (www.vistrails.org) and a series of examples from real applications to demonstrate how a provenance management platform can be used to streamline data analysis and visualization.
