Provenance Requirements for the Next Version of RDF

The provenance of information is crucial to making determinations about whether information is trusted, how to integrate diverse information sources, and how to give credit to originators when reusing information. The provenance (i.e., origins) of information on the Web is crucial in many applications to allow information quality assessment, data integration, trust judgments, reproducibility, accountability, and many other important tasks. This paper summarizes the positions of the W3C provenance incubator group on the requirements to support provenance and their implications on the current implementation and future prospects of the W3C RDF standard.
