Foundations of Information and Knowledge Systems: First International Symposium, FoIKS 2000, Burg, Germany, February 14-17, 2000 Proceedings by Klaus-Dieter Schewe
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First Internatio nal Symposium on Foundations of Information and Knowledge Systems, FoI KS 2000, held in Burg, Germany, in February 2000. The 14 revised full papers and four short papers were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 45 submissions. Among the topics addressed are logical fou ndations and semantics of datamodels, dependency theory, integrity and security, temporal aspects, foundations of information systems design including Web-based information services, and query languages and opt imization.
