DESCRIPTION:Logic and databases have been intimate
ly linked since the rise of relational database sy
stems in the 1970s. Relational databases can be mo
delled by finite relational structures, and first-
order logic lies at the core of standard database
query languages such as the Structured Query Langu
age, SQL. As another example, closer to current re
search, XML documents can be modelled by labelled
unranked trees, and XML query languages as logics
on trees. The workshop will focus on recent res
earch on logical aspects of the theory of database
systems. These include the applications of logic
and logical methods in the study of databases as w
ell as questions in logic that arise from this stu
dy. Particular topics of interest include the expr
essive power and complexity of query languages; mo
dels and languages for semi-structured data; proba
bilistic databases; constraint databases, etc.
