Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present PBase, a scientific workflow provenance repository that supports declarative graph queries and keyword-based graph searching, complemented with ranking capabilities taking into consideration authority and quality of service criteria. Given the widespread use of scientific workflow systems and the increasing support and relevance of provenance as part of their functionality, the challenge arises to enable scientists to use provenance for the discovery of experiments, programs, and data of interest. PBase aims to satisfy this requirement while also presenting to the user a customized graphical user interface that greatly facilitates the exploration of the repository and the visualization of results.
