Abstract

In this paper we investigate the role of provenance in agent-based simulation and discuss typical queries we need to perform over a provenance record. Using examples based on a simulation environment using OWL ontologies to represent the state and structure of the simulation, we discuss some of the challenges posed by the large volume of fine-grained provenance associated with the execution of simulation models.
