FOREWORD

The 1999 ACM SIGMOD International Conference on Management of Data was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June 1-3, 1999. The SIGMOD Conference is sponsored by the Associations for Computing Machinery (ACM) and its Special Interest Group on Management of Data (SIGMOD) and is an annual, international forum for the dissemination and discussion of new ideas in database technology and the presentation of database products and prototypes.
The Call for Papers attracted 205 submission of research papers, out of which 42 were accepted. Once again, the quality of the competing papers was high, with an impressive count of 9 ‘best paper’ nominations. The conference also included a rich program of tutorials, panels, demonstrations and industrial sessions. The opening address was delivered by Jim Gray and the second day keynote address by Ted Berger.
There is a long list of people who volunteered their time and energy to put together such a strong program: Dennis Shasha, Ken Salem, and Guy Lohman selected the tutorials, demos and panels, respectively, covering a broad spectrum of topics, including electronic commerce, database scale-up and scale-down, web mining, to name a few. The Industrial Committee – Divy Agrawal, Surajit Chaudhuri, Misha Rabinovich and Eric Simon – assembled a strong industrial program, bringing together all the major database vendors, as well as companies in telecommunications, e-commerce and manufacturing. The members of the Program Committee did the reviews thoroughly and timely, despite the tight schedule.
Daniel Volkovich at CMU and Alex Labrinidis at Maryland did a terri,c job in setting up the website for the electronic submission of abstracts and reviews. Steven Rudich and David Karger pointed us to a wonderful algorithm that automatically assigns reviewers to papers. Dorothy Zaborowski at CMU and Julieta Dela Paz at USC provided impeccable secretarial support.
We are also endebted to the many people whose efforts have ensured a smoothly operating conference: Gang Zhou and Jim Wol, for managing the finances; Lew Hassell and Il-Yeol Song for handling local arrangements; Jason Tsong-Li Wang for arranging exhibits; Joachim Hammer for expertly managing the registrations; Sridhar Ramaswamy for publicizing the program and coordinating the Call for Papers and both the advance and final programs; HweeHwa Pang and Daniela Florescu for publicizing the conference in the Far East and Europe; Daniel Barbara for pursuing industrial sponsors; and last but not least, Mary Fernandez for using Strudel to generate and maintain the lovely web site.
Finally we would like to thank the authors and contributors for their time and effort in creating such a distinguished program.
