Abstract

The Open Provenance Model is a model of provenance that is designed to meet the following requirements: (1) Allow provenance information to be exchanged between systems, by means of a compatibility layer based on a shared provenance model. (2) Allow developers to build and share tools that operate on such a provenance model. (3) Define provenance in a precise, technology-agnostic manner. (4) Support a digital representation of provenance for any "thing", whether produced by computer systems or not. (5) Allow multiple levels of description to coexist. (6) Define a core set of rules that identify the valid inferences that can be made on provenance representation. This document contains the specification of the Open Provenance Model (v1.1) resulting from a community effort to achieve inter-operability in the Provenance Challenge series.
