The ninth overseas convention on Extending Database know-how, EDBT 2004, used to be held in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, in the course of March 14–18, 2004. The EDBT sequence of meetings is a longtime and prestigious discussion board for the alternate of the newest study leads to facts administration.

EDBT 2004 had the topic “new demanding situations for database technology,” with the aim of encouraging researchers to take a better curiosity within the present fascinating technological and alertness developments and to plot and handle new study and improvement instructions for database know-how. From its early days, database expertise has been challenged and complex through new makes use of and functions, and it keeps to conform besides software specifications and advances. Today’s DBMS expertise faces but a number of new demanding situations. Technological developments and new computation paradigms, and purposes reminiscent of pervasive and ubiquitous computing, grid computing, bioinformatics, belief administration, digital groups, and electronic asset administration, to call quite a few, require database know-how to be deployed in quite a few environments and for a few di?erent reasons. Such an intensive deployment also will require reliable, resilient database platforms, in addition to easy-to-manage and ?exible ones, to which we will entrust our information in no matter what shape they are.

The provision of an emarketplace brings with it the need for e-tendering, e-contracts, e-payments, eguarantees as well as opportunities to re-engineer the business process for effectiveness and efficiency. This is currently a very hot research topic since it requires the representation in an IT system of artefacts (documents) associated with business transactions.

The degree of autonomy becomes the key research issue: can the broker decide by itself or does it solicit input from the external entity (user, source, resource) via its agent and metadata? The broker will need general strategic knowledge (negotiation techniques) but the way a broker uses the additional information supplied by the agents representing the entities could be a differentiating factor and therefore a potential business benefit. In addition there are research issues concerning the syntax and semantics of messages passed between brokers to ensure optimal representation with appropriate performance and security.

Security and Privacy for Web Databases and Services 5 27 Towards a Secure Semantic Web For the semantic web to be secure all of its components have to be secure. These components include web databases and services, XML and RDF documents, and information integration services. As more progress is made on investigating the various security issues for these components, then we could envisage developing a secure semantic web. Note that logic, proof and trust are at the highest layers of the semantic web.
