|The ACM SIGMOD Anthology
is a digital library for the database systems research
community developed by
ACM SIGMOD with past
cooperation of the VLDB Endowment,
Technical Committee on Data Engineering, and the
and with the current assistance of many publishers and individuals,
both in providing permission to include material here, and in locating physical
copies to scan into digital form.
The bibliographic information in the Anthology is
integrated into the DBLP Bibliography.
This is the on-linve version of the contents of volume 6 of the Anthology,
the first volume in several years.
The PDFs of the papers and other materials are located on the DVD.
They are not available on-line.
The links in the left margin provide access to the
contents, which are also listed below.
I wish to thank Michael Ley, the Anthology's founding editor,
for helping to prepare this volume, and for integrating
the Anthology with DBLP, which is a wonderful resource
for the research community.
I also wish to thank special contributors to this volume:
Gio Wiederhold, Richard T. Snodgrass,
the members of the CODASYL Systems and DBTG
Committees (in particular Charles W. Bachman and T. William Olle),
