ODBASE 2007 PC Co-chairs’ Message
As in recent years, the focus of the ODBASE conference lies in addressing research issues that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as databases, artificial intelligence, networking, data extraction, or mobile computing. There has been an increasing focus on semantic technologies in ODBASE. The work on semantic modeling technologies is being progressively scaled up to handling millions of triples which permit adoption of semantic applications within a few days. The envelope is being progressively pushed out to enable even faster, wider and broader enterprise-wide and Web-scale applications. Also, ODBASE 2007 encouraged the submission of papers that examine the information needs of various applications, including electronic commerce, electronic government, mobile systems, or bioinformatics.
