The theme of this book is the potential of new advanced database systems. The volume presents the proceedings of the
10th British National Conference on Databases, held in
Aberdeen, Scotland, in July 1992.
The volume contains two invited papers, one on the promise of distributed computing andthe challenges of legacy systems by M.L. Brodie, and the other on object-oriented requirements capture and analysis and the Orca project by
The following four parts each contain three submitted papers selected from a total of 36 submissions. The parts are entitled:
- Object-oriented databases
- Parallel implementationsand industrial systems
- Non-relational data models
- Logic programming and databases
