Alan Robinson This set of essays can pay tribute to Bob Kowalski on his sixtieth birthday, an anniversary which supplies his pals and associates an excuse to have a good time his profession as an unique philosopher, a charismatic communicator, and a forceful highbrow chief. The good judgment programming group hereby and herein conveys its admire and due to him for his pivotal position in developing and fostering the conceptual paradigm that is its raison d’Œtre. the range of pursuits lined the following displays the range of Bob’s matters. learn on. it really is an highbrow dinner party. sooner than you start, allow me to ship him a quick own, yet public, message: Bob, how correct you have been, and the way mistaken i used to be. I may still clarify. while Bob arrived in Edinburgh in 1967 solution was once as but really new, having taken numerous years to turn into in any respect well known. learn teams to enquire a number of features of answer sprang up at numerous associations, the single geared up through Bernard Meltzer at Edinburgh collage being one of the first. For the half-dozen years that Bob used to be a number one member of Bernard’s staff, i used to be a common customer to it, and that i observed loads of him. We had many discussions approximately common sense, computation, and language.

Indeﬁnite temporal information can be represented by using in annotations. , in the program Additions the in annotation is used to specify that a certain date is within a time period (sell(X,Prop) in [Jan 1 1950, Dec 31 1992]). This is a case in which it is not important to know the precise date but it is suﬃcient to have an information which delimits the time period in which it can occur. 2 Valid-Timeslice Operator By exploiting the features of the intersection operator we can deﬁne an operator which eases the selection of information holding in a certain interval.

Problem (3) refers to the fact, that, both in the local-as-view and in the global-as-view approach, it may happen that a source presents some limitations on the types of accesses it supports. A typical example is a web source accessible through a form where one of the ﬁelds must necessarily be ﬁlled in by the user. Such a situation can be modeled by specifying the source as a relation supporting only queries with a selection on a column. Suitable notations have been proposed for such situations [44], and the consequences of these access limitations on query processing in integration systems have been investigated in several papers [44,43,27,56,55,41,42].
