This volume constitutes the proceedings of the 12th British National Conference on Databases (BNCOD-12), held at Surrey, Guildford in July 1994. The BNCOD conferences are thought as a platform for exchange between theoreticians and practitioners, where researchers from academia and industry meet professionals interested in advanced database applications. The 13 refereed papers presented in the proceedings were selected from 47 submissions; they are organized in chapters on temporal databases, formal approaches, parallel databases, object-oriented databases, and distributed databases. In addition there are two invited presentations: "Managing open systems now that the "Glashouse" has gone" by R. Baker and "Knowledge reuse through networks of large KBs" by P.M.D. Gray.

Many commercial and defense applications require a database system that protects data of different sensitivities while still allowing users of different clearances to access the system. This book is a collection of papers covering aspects of the emerging security technology for multilevel database systems. It contains reports on such landmark systems as SeaView, LDV, ASD, Secure Sybase, the UNISYS secure distributed system, and the secure entity-relationship system GTERM. Much of the research is concerned with the relational model, although security for the entity-relationship and object-oriented models of data are also discussed. Because the field is so new, it has been extremely difficult to learn about the research going on in this area, until now. This book will be invaluable to researchers and system designers in database systems and computer security. It will also be of interest to data users and custodians who are concerned with the security of their information. This book can also be used as a text for an advanced topics course on computer security in a computer science curriculum.

Efficient access to data, sharing data, extracting information from data, and making use of the information have become urgent needs for today's corporations. With so much data on the Web, managing it with conventional tools is becoming almost impossible. New tools and techniques are necessary to provide interoperability as well as warehousing between multiple data sources and systems, and to extract information from the databases. XML Databases and the Semantic Web focuses on critical and new Web technologies needed for organizations to carry out transactions on the Web, to understand how to use the Web effectively, and to exchange complex documents on the Web. This reference for database administrators, database designers, and Web designers working in tandem with database technologists covers three emerging technologies of significant impact for electronic business: Extensible Markup Language (XML), semi-structured databases, and the semantic Web. The first two parts of the book explore these emerging technologies. The third part highlights the implications of these technologies for e-business. Overall, the book presents a comprehensive view of critical technologies for the Web in general and XML in particular. The semantic Web, XML, and semi-structured databases are still relatively new technologies that integrate many other technologies. As these technologies and integration of these advances mature, we can expect to see progress in the semantic web. The information contained in XML Databases and the Semantic Web is essential to the future success of effective e-business on the Web.

There is now so much data on the Web that managing it with conventional tools is becoming almost impossible. To manage this data, provide interoperability and warehousing between multiple data sources and systems, and extract information from the databases and warehouses, various tools are being developed. In fact, developments in multimedia database management have exploded during the past decade. To date, however, there has been little information available on providing a complete set of services for multimedia databases, including their management, mining, and integration on the Web for electronic enterprises. Managing and Mining Multimedia Databases fills that gap. Focusing on managing and mining multimedia databases for electronic commerce and business, it explores database management system techniques for text, image, audio, and video databases. It addresses the issues and challenges of mining multimedia databases to extract information, and discusses the directions and challenges related to integrating multimedia databases for the Web, particularly for e-business. This book provides a comprehensive overview of multimedia data management and mining technologies, from the underlying concepts, architectures, and data models for multimedia database systems to the technologies that support multimedia data management on the Web, privacy issues, and emerging standards, prototypes, and products. Designed for technical managers, executives, and technologists, it offers your only opportunity to learn about both multimedia data management and multimedia data mining within a single book.

Nested Relations and Complex Objects in Databases

This volume was primarily intended to present selected papers from the workshop on Theory and Applications of Nested Relations and Complex Objects, held in Darmstadt, FRG, from April 6-8, 1987. Other papers were solicited in order to provide a picture of the field as general as possible. Research on nested relations and complex objects originates in the late seventies. The motivation was to obtain data models and systems which would provide support for so-called complex objects or molecular structures, i.e., for hierarchically organized data, thereby overcoming severe shortcomings of the relational model. This theme of research is now maturing. Systems based on those ideas are beginning to be available. Languages of various natures (algebras, calculi, graphical, logic-oriented) have been designed and a theory is slowly emerging. Finally, new developments in database technology and research are incorporating features of models involving complex objects. A variety of approaches is represented in this volume. The first three papers give overviews of major pioneering implementation efforts. The fourth paper is devoted to the important issue of implementation of storage structures. The next three papers propose excursions in the foundations of nested relations and complex objects. The following six contributions are all devoted to modeling of complex objects. The area of database design is represented by the last four papers.

When in 1986 Yves Kodrato? started the European Working Session on Le- ning at Orsay, France, it could not be foreseen that the conference would grow year by year and become the premier European conference of the ?eld, attr- ting submissions from all over the world. The ?rst European Conference on Principles of Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery was organized by Henryk Jan Komorowskiand Jan Zytkowin 1997 in Trondheim, Norway. Since 2001the two conferences have been collocated, o?ering participants from both areas the opportunity to listen to each other's talks. This year, the integration has moved even further. Instead of ?rst splitting the ?eld according to ECML or PKDD topics, we ?attened the structure of the ?eld to a single set of topics. For each of the topics, experts were invited to the Program Committee. Submitted papers were gathered into one collection and characterized according to their topics. The reviewers were then asked to bid on all papers, regardlessof the conference. This allowed us to allocate papers more precisely. The hierarchical reviewing process as introduced in 2005 was continued. We nominated30AreaChairs,eachsupervisingthereviewsanddiscussionsofabout 17 papers. In addition, 307 reviewers completed the ProgramCommittee. Many thanks to all of them! It was a considerable e?ort for the reviewers to carefully review the papers, some providing us with additional reviews even at short - tice.

This volume contains the 13 best of the 18 papers presented at the first MFDBS conference held in Dresden, GDR, January 19-23, 1987. A short summary of the two panel discussions is also included. The volume is intended to be a reflection of the current state of knowledge and a guide to further development in database theory. The main topics covered are: theoretical fundaments of the relational data model (dependency theory, design theory, null values, query processing, complexity theory), and of its extensions (graphical representations, NF2-models), conceptual modelling of distributed database management systems and the relationship between logic and databases.
