The UK database community has a long and eventful history and much is recorded in the proceedings of BNCOD. Despite some notable successes with papers in international journals and conferences, in general the UK community ‘punched below its weight’ in database research. At the 25th anniversary BNCOD (2008) a special session day brought together well-known international researchers with their perspectives on research directions. This paper attempts to provide directions for the future of database research in a context related to global challenges and evolving requirements.
