Requiring heterogeneous information systems to cooperate and communicate has now become crucial, especially in application areas like e-business, Web-based mash-ups and the life sciences. Such cooperating systems have to automatically and efficiently match, exchange, transform and integrate large data sets from different sources and of different structure in order to enable seamless data exchange and transformation. The book edited by Bellahsene, Bonifati and Rahm provides an overview of the ways in which the schema and ontology matching and mapping tools have addressed the above requirements and points to the open technical challenges. The contributions from leading experts are structured into three parts: large-scale and knowledge-driven schema matching, quality-driven schema mapping and evolution, and evaluation and tuning of matching tasks. The authors describe the state of the art by discussing the latest achievements such as more effective methods for matching data, mapping transformation verification, adaptation to the context and size of the matching and mapping tasks, mapping-driven schema evolution and merging, and mapping evaluation and tuning. The overall result is a coherent, comprehensive picture of the field. With this book, the editors introduce graduate students and advanced professionals to this exciting field. For researchers, they provide an up-to-date source of reference about schema and ontology matching, schema and ontology evolution, and schema merging.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th International XML Database Symposium, XSym 2007, held in Vienna, Austria, in September 2007 in conjunction with the International Conference on Very Large Data Bases, VLDB 2007.The 8 revised full papers together with 2 invited talks and the extended abstract of 1 panel session were carefully reviewed and selected from 25 submissions. Covering all current aspects of core database technology for XML data management, XML and data integration, and development and deployment of XML applications, the papers are organized in topical sections on XPath query answering, XQuery evaluation and performance, as well as XML updates, temporal XML data and concurrency.

Since its first edition in 2003, the XML Database Symposium series (XSym) has been a forum for academics, practitioners, users and vendors, allowing all to discuss the use of and synergy between database management systems and XML. The symposia have provided many opportunities for timely discussions on a broad range of topics pertaining to the theory and practice of XML data management and its applications. XSym 2010 continued this XSym tradition with a program consisting of 11 papers and a keynote shared with the 36th International Conference on Very Large Data Bases (VLDB 2010). We received 20 paper submissions, out of which 8 papers were accepted as full papers, and 3 as short papers. Each submitted paper underwent a rigorous and careful review by four referees. The contributions in these proceedings are a fine sample of the current research in XML query processing, including XPath satisfiability, approximate joins, pattern matching, linear index construction for trees, dynamic labeling, and XQuery update translation based on schema. The papers focus on recent advances in detecting fu- tional dependencies, modeling complex XML twig pattern output, promoting sem- tics capability of XML keys, and searchable compression of Microsoft office do- ments. In addition, we include a paper that shares lessons learned from real XML database development.

For the ?rst time four workshops have been held in conjunction with the 8th Object-Oriented Information Systems conference, OOIS 2002, to encourage - teraction between researchers and practitioners. Workshop topics are, of course, inline with the conference’s scienti?c scope and provide a forum for groups of researchers and practitioners to meet together more closely and to exchange opinions and advanced ideas, and to share preliminary results on focused issues in an atmosphere that fosters interaction and problem solving. The conference hosted four one-day workshops. The four selected workshops were fully in the spirit of a workshop session hosted by a main conference. Indeed, OOIS deals with all the topics related to the use of object-oriented techniques for the development of information systems. The four workshops are very speci?c and contribute to enlarging the spectrum of the more general topics treated in the main conference. The ?rst workshop focused on a very speci?c and key c- cept of object-oriented development, the specialization/generalization hierarchy. The second one explored the use of “non-traditional” approaches (at the edge of object-oriented techniques, such as aspects, AI, etc.) to improve reuse. The third workshop dealt with optimization in Web-based information systems. And ?nally the fourth workshop investigated issues related to model-driven software development.
