What are "Clippings?"
[December 26, 2003] Workshop on Database Technologies for Handling XML Information on the Web. A Call for Papers has been issued in connection with the Workshop on Database Technologies for Handling XML Information on the Web, to be held March 14, 2004 in Heraklion, Crete (Greece) in conjunction with the Ninth International Conference on Extending Database Technology (EDBT 2004, March 14-18, 2004). "The DATAX workshop theme is the use of Database Technology and the Extensible Markup Language (XML) in the Web... Many relational database systems can export data as XML documents and import data from XML documents. XML is on its way to becoming the communication standard of the Web. Moreover, there is an increasing trend to store XML-data in database systems and, by this, make it easier to access and maintain. In the meantime, some commercial database systems are already on the market that are especially tailored to store, maintain and easily access XML-documents. The goal of this workshop is to bring together academics, practitioners, users and vendors to discuss the use and synergy between the above-mentioned technologies. Many commercial systems built today are increasingly using these technologies together and it is important to understand the various research and practical issues. The wide range of participants will help the various communities understand both specific and common problems..."
