Temporal Database in Depth: Time and the Data Warehouse
This technical seminar is based on the book "Temporal Data and the Relational Model" by Date, Darwen and Lorentzos.
KEYNOTE ADDRESS - CHRIS DATE Chris Date is one of the world's best-known specialists in relational database technology, and is making one of his rare visits to the UK.
RESPONSE - ROB SQUIRE - ORACLE CORPORATION Rob Squire is a UK based consultant actively involved in research for Oracle into techniques for managing time varying data within the relational model.
This seminar will describe a new approach to the problem that looks set to address the issue of proper temporal support - an approach that fits squarely into the classical relation tradition.
Rob Squire will discuss situations where business requirements would indicate the need for an application to manage time varying (i.e. temporal) data, including a practical demonstration of one approach to managing temporal data, varying data across several entities while ensuring referential integrity is fully maintained.
Attendees to the seminar will be offered the opportunity to question both speakers and exchange ideas in a panel session following the main presentations.

DBAs, data architects, DBMS implementers, database application programmers, database professionals
