Sustainable e-Infrastructures: Challenges in Data Provenance and Authenticity
[BELIEF and CASPAR, supported in particular by CNR, are European projects involving many organisations which were partners of the DELOS Network of Excellence managed by ERCIM.]
"The BELIEF-II Brainstorming workshops are strongly connected with the eConcertation
events. In particular, the rationale behind the organisation of these workshops is to
concentrate on and analyse particular aspects of the output from the eConcertation meetings
of European Commission - DG INFSO/F3 GÉANT & e-Infrastructure Unit, thus achieving the
transition from a more generic framework to a more specific discussion."
Today's e-Infrastructures provide online scientific communities with a viable means for large-scale,
cross-domain collaboration, leveraged by their inherent ability to store and efficiently share huge
volumes of distributed resources and data. In this context of global computing and integration, where
new data sets are derived out of existing information at high rates, either manually or automatically,
significant challenges are posed to the management, semantics assessment, and quality assertion of
the shared data objects.
