Joint Summer School on Extending DataBase Technology

by Serge Abiteboul and Nourredine Mouaddib

The EDBT (Extending Data Base Technology) school took place at La Baule-les-Pins, France from 16 to 21 May 1999. The school, now a major and well-established event, was the fifth of a series of a European bi-yearly summer school in databases. Lectures were given by leading researchers of the international database community.

The school was attended by 61 participants. Together with the teachers and the organizers this lead to 75 persons. It should be noted that many teachers (as asked) attended most of the school. More than half were PhD students and among the others the wide majority were rather young researchers. The courses up to the last one were fully attended. It is our impression that the students enjoyed the school and learnt a lot. Indeed, the PhD students requested an extra session so they would have more time to discuss the future of the field.
