Temporal databases incorporate the concept of time to create high-level abstractions useful in database applications. This has been an active area of research for about twenty years. In the last few years the importance of the temporal database area has been recognized by the international scientific community. This recognition came in part in the form of the ARPA/NSF sponsored International Workshop on Temporal Database Infrastructure in 1993, a VLDB-affiliated temporal workshop in 1995 , a special section of the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering on temporal and real-time databases published in August 1995, and the incorporation of temporal constructs, proposed by the temporal database community, in the soon-to-be standardized SQL3 language. This book arose out of the Dagstuhl seminar that was organized by us during June 23-27, 1997. This seminar focused on the future directions of this discipline, with respect to both research issues and the means to incorporate temporal databases into mainstream application development. List of topics discussed at this seminar included:
Temporal data models: relational, object-oriented, deductive, and hybrid models. Where do the temporal capabilities fit in?
Temporal languages: TSQL2 and beyond. Update and retrieval languages for various types of temporal data models.
The interrelationships between temporal databases and other disciplines: spatial databases, active databases, deductive databases, real-time databases, information uncertainty, belief revision, etc.
Implementation issues in temporal databases. Issues that arise from experience of implementors and users and the agenda for research into these areas and transition to use in practice.
Strategic discussions about the future of "temporal databases" as a discipline. Evaluation of the current state of the art and "call for action" to the community.
The Dagstuhl seminar brought together researchers who have dealt with different perspectives on temporal databases: temporal data models, temporal retrieval and update languages, interrelationships between temporal databases and other database technologies (e.g., spatial databases, active databases, realtime databases), and interrelationships between temporal databases and temporal reasoning in artificial intelligence. Some of the invited participants have also been involved in the standardization activities of the temporal community. Having a diverse group that shared a focus on temporal information processing ensured critical evaluation of the activities that have occurred thus far, and enriched the discussions.
