		Fourth International XML Database Symposium (XSym 2006)
		In Conjunction with VLDB 2006 Seoul, Korea
		10-11 September 2006

The theme of the XML Database Symposium (XSym) is the convergence of
database technology with XML technology. The goal of this symposium is
to bring together academics, practitioners, users and vendors to
discuss the use and synergy between the above-mentioned technologies.
Many commercial systems built today are increasingly using these
technologies together and it is important to understand the various
research and practical issues.  This symposium will provide the
opportunity to debate new issues and directions for research and
development work in the future.
