INVITED TALK I : Emergent Semantics
                      Stefano Spaccapietra, EPFL, Switzerland
                      Co-author: IFIP 2.6 Working Group "Databases"

   Information and communication infrastructures underwent a rapid and extreme 
   decentralization process over the past decade: From a world of statically 
   and partially connected central servers rose an intricate web of millions of 
   information sources loosely connecting one to another. The dynamism and 
   relative autonomy of the individuals in the structure is now seen as a chance 
   more than a threat to the stability and consistency of the overall system. 
   New paradigms, like ad-hoc or peer-to-peer networks, even exacerbate this 
   position by taking advantage of the liveliness and heterogeneity of their 
   constituents in the creation of global, self-organizing structures. Today, 
   we expect to witness the extension of this revolution with the wide adoption 
   of meta-data standards like RDF or OWL underpinning the creation of a semantic 
   web. Again, we hope for global properties to emerge from a multiplicity of 
   pair-wise, local interactions, resulting eventually in a self-stabilizing 
   semantic infrastructure. This paper represents an effort to summarize the 
   conditions under which this revolution would take place as well as an attempt 
   to underline its main properties, consequences and applications. Also, it 
   proposes solutions to the main threads and limitations endangering the formation 
   and proper functioning of such a large-scale, emergent semantic system. 

14:30 - 18:00

                  Hongjun Lu, Hong Kong University of Science & Technology
                  Jeffrey Xu Yu, Chinese University of Hong Kong

   XML has become a de facto standard for information dissemination and exchange 
   over the Internet. During the past few years, a large amount of work has been 
   devoted to XML data management and dozens of XML data management systems have 
   been developed. Recently more work on query processing and optimization in XML 
   database systems has been reported. The objective of this tutorial is to review
   the issues in XML query processing and optimization and summarize the 
   state-of-the-art techniques. We will first briefly discuss the special features 
   of the XML data and XML query languages from the view point of query processing 
   followed by an introduction on different approaches of physical data organization 
   and indexing techniques. Query processing techniques in both relational based 
   systems and native XML engines will be discussed in detail. Finally we will 
   discuss the issues related to XML query optimization.

KEYNOTE II : Data Semantics Revisited: Databases and the Semantic Web
                  John Mylopoulos, University of Toronto, Canada
  
   Data in a data source are useful because they model some part of the real world,
   its subject matter (or application, or domain of discourse). The problem of 
   data semantics is establishing and maintaining the correspondence between a 
   data source, hereafter a model, and its intended subject matter. The model may
   be a database storing data about employees in a company, a database schema 
   describing parts, projects and suppliers, a website presenting information 
   about a university, or a plain text file describing the battle of Waterloo. 
   The problem has been with us since the development of the first databases. 
   However, the problem remained under control as long as the operational 
   environment of a database remained closed and relatively stable. In such a 
   setting, the meaning of the data was factored out from the database proper, 
   and entrusted to the small group of regular users and/or application programs. 

   The advent of the web has changed all that. Databases today are made available, 
   in some form, on the web where users, application programs and uses are open-ended 
   and ever changing. In such a setting, the semantics of the data has to be made 
   available along with the data. For human users, this is done through an appropriate 
   choice of presentation format. For application programs, however, this semantics 
   has to be provided in a formal and (hence) processable form. Hence the call for 
   the Semantic Web. 

   We critically review some of the concepts and technologies under development, 
   intended to meet the Semantic Web challenge. We then propose a formal framework 
   for assigning meaning to data through composite mappings from a model to its 
   intended subject matter. Our proposal adopts a formal semantics framework 
   proposed in [Smith87], and postulates that every model must come with a meaning 
   defined in terms of a mapping to another model. This recursive definition of 
   semantics terminates with a mapping to a formal model of a class of applications. 
   To illustrate the scope and potential benefits of our proposal, we focus on 
   database schemas (both conceptual and logical) and present an example involving 
   several schemas and the mappings among them. 

   This is a speculative talk. The research that will flesh out the details and 
   actual benefits of this framework are ahead of us. The seminar is based on 
   joint work with Alex Borgida and Yuan An.

INVITED TALK II : Genomic and Proteomic Databases and Applications: A Challenge for 
                  Database Technology
                       Shamkant Navathe, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA

TUTORIAL II : Algorithmic Excursions in Data Streams
                   Sudipto Guha, University of Pennsylvannia

   For many recent applications, the concept of a data stream is more
   appropriate than a data set. By nature, a stored data set is an
   appropriate model when significant portions of the data are queried
   again and again, and updates are small and/or relatively
   infrequent. In contrast, a data stream is an appropriate model when a
   large volume of data is arriving continuously and it is either
   unnecessary or impractical to store the data in some form of
   memory. Many applications naturally generate data streams as opposed
   to simple data sets. Astronomers, telecommunications companies, banks,
   stock-market analysts, and news organizations, for example, have vast
   amounts of data arriving continuously. Data Mining of streams is thus
   a necessary ingredient for many successful applications. The stream
   view challenges basic assumptions in data mining like random access to
   data. It also raises several fundamental questions like are there
   effective techniques for mining streams?

   In this tutorial we will present a survey of algorithms and
   applications related to data streams. We begin by presenting the basic
   data stream model of computation. We will then cover techiques for
   preprocessing a stream like sampling from a stream, dimension
   reduction of a stream, and summarizing a stream using structures like
   histograms. These preprocessing steps are commonly employed prior to
   data mining. We will then cover various techniques for mining streams
   like computing frequent itemsets, clusters, and decision trees. Since
   query processing is a basic tool that is needed to support data mining
   in databases. We assume that the audience has elementary knowledge of
   algorithms and a basic understanding of data mining. By and large, the
   tutorial will be self-contained.

TUTORIAL III : Design and Implementation of an E-Catalog Management System 
                    Sang-goo Lee, Seoul National University

   Electronic catalogs providing information on products and services form 
   one of the most important components of e-business systems. To support 
   various business solutions such as e-procurement, supply chain management, 
   and enterprise resource planning, a Catalog Management System (CMS) needs 
   to provide flexible data schema and a holistic control for management 
   activities including definition, creation, storage, retrieval, revision, 
   reuse, and maintenance of data and meta-data of products and services. 
   The design of a CMS is complicated by the diversity in product types, 
   applications, and vocabulary. Relational schema design for tens of 
   thousands of different product types is an issue that has been well 
   noted and addressed in the literature. Identifying products and product 
   classes across organizations throughout the product lifecycle, often known 
   as data synchronization, has been one of the toughest challenges in the 
   supply chain management world.

   In this tutorial, we will define the problems and challenges of e-catalog 
   management. We will then introduce our experience and present solutions to 
   some of these problems including product database design, classification 
   scheme management, and product search. We will also introduce an 
   ontology-based approach to these problems and its applications. Demos of a 
   Catalog Management System are available.
