QLQP-2006 Query Languages and Query Processing

11th International Workshop on Foundations of Models and Languages for Data and Objects (FMLDO) EDBT 2006

Post-Conference Workshop
Munich, Germany
March 30-31, 2006


The development of database query languages, the investigation of semantics for query languages as well as query processing and query optimization are established and permanent research areas. The development of new data models usually causes the development of new query languages, new requirements in application domains require an on-going improvement of existing query languages. The ever-growing amount of data as well as new architectures for database and information systems continuously causes the development of new and of more sophisticated query processing and optimization techniques. Examples of such new directions range from new operators like ranking and approximations to translation techniques like XQuery to SQL and new query models such as continuous queries on streams and adaptive techniques for Grid and P2P systems.

This goal of this workshop is to foster the discussion on new challenges and direction of query languages and processing for the next decade. Typical, but not exclusive topics of interest are:

Scope of the Workshop Series:

This international workshop will be the eleventh in a series focusing on "Foundations of Models and Languages for Data and Objects" (FMLDO) - initiated and organized by the GI Working Group on Foundations of Information Systems. The main principle of this workshop series is to concentrate on one selected topic and to offer the opportunity for in-depth exchange of ideas and experiences. In order to stimulate extensive discussions presentation slots will allow sufficient time for presentation and discussion.

There is accommodation available with fully heated rooms that also have air conditioning and many extras laid on for your comfort and convenience. More information about this workshop series is available under
