The workshop comes at a time when recent, significant advances in this field are poised to have a major impact on the commercial database products of the near future, and is intended to serve as a forum for disseminating research and experience in this rapidly advancing area. Since the workshop will be held immediately following VLDB'95 in Zurich, participants will be able to maximize their interchange of experiences and knowledge among researchers and practitioners across the entire field of database research and development. SCOPE ----- The primary focus of the workshop is on new and original research results in the areas of theoretical foundations, design, implementation, and applications of temporal databases, as well as experience reports from application specialists and the commercial community that describe lessons learned in the development, operation, and maintenance of actual temporal database systems in practical and innovative applications. The goal is to exchange research ideas and results which will not only contribute to the academic arena, but will also benefit the commercial community in the near future and encourage a dialog between practitioners and researchers. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following as they relate to temporal databases: o Temporal Data Models, including o Distributed Temporal Databases Valid-Time, Transaction-Time, and Bitemporal Models o Query Optimization Techniques o Semantics of Temporal Data o Integration with Existing Commercial Products o Temporal Query Languages o Critical Evaluations of TSQL2/TSQL3 Proposals o Spatio-Temporal Data Models and Languages o Simulation and Modeling o Temporally Active Data Models o Knowledge-Based Systems o Rule Processing in Temporally o Decision Support Active Databases o Knowledge Discovery o Temporal Database Design o Novel Applications in Business, o Real-time Databases Scientific, Medical, and Legal Domains o Concurrency Control and Recovery o Requirements Analysis for o Reasoning with Temporal Temporal Database Applications Information o Reports on Experience with o Imprecise Temporal Information Real Applications WORKSHOP FORMAT --------------- The workshop will be organized in a manner designed to maximize the opportunity for interaction and exchange among the participants. It will be a combination of presentations with subsequent discussions, and panels on recent developing and emerging trends. This format should provide a forum for collaborations to develop among members of the international community of temporal database researchers and practitioners. Attendance will be limited. SUBMISSION ---------- Authors are invited to submit original research contributions or experience reports in English. Papers should be double-spaced and no longer than 8,000 words (roughly twenty pages). Submissions will be ``double-blind'' reviewed, i.e., anonymously, and should therefore include a separate title page with each author's full name, affiliation, complete address where you can be reached the week of May 22, 1995, telephone number, and if available, fax number and internet address. Submitters should indicate in a cover letter their willingness to attend the workshop and present their paper. Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three reviewers for quality, correctness, originality and relevance. Accepted papers will be presented at the Workshop and published in the proceedings, which will be available at the Workshop. Proposals for panels that examine emerging, innovative, or otherwise provocative temporal database issues are encouraged as well. Panel proposals should include a 1-2 page summary of the topic and the names and affiliations of 3-4 panelists who have made a commitment to participate. A mix of industry and academic panel members is recommended. Five copies of a technical paper or panel proposal should be submitted by Monday March 20, 1995 to the Program Chair: James Clifford, Program Chair International Workshop on Temporal Databases Department of Information Systems Leonard N.
