Provenance: An Introduction to PROV is now available

September 13th, 2013 § 2 comments § permalink

We are excited to announce the availability of Provenance: An Introduction to PROV . This is the 7th of Morgan and Claypool’s Synthesis Lectures on the Semantic Web edited by Jim Hendler and Ying Ding. We are proud that our book is part of this series which describes the technologies and practices that are creating a more machine  readable web.

In this book, we have tried to give a practical and insightful look at the W3C PROV recommendations for provenance interchange. While PROV is already being adopted, we believe that a introduction focused on the usage of provenance and answering key use cases would be beneficial to those looking to leverage PROV in their systems.

We hope you find the book useful and we are looking forward to your feedback. On this blog, we’ll keep you informed about PROV related topics.
