1999 Proceedings of the eighth international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '99  
An essential prerequisite to achieving interoperability in multidatabase systems is to be able to identify semantically equivalent or related data items in component databases.  ...  And we provide a semantic query language, SemQL, to capture the concepts about what users want.  ...  sources into a multidatabase system, we must consider two views of the integration problem.  ...

Multiplex: A Formal Model for Multidatabases and Its Implementation [chapter]

Amihai Motro
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Multiplex is based on formal assumptions of integrability, which distinguish between scheme and instance reconcilability among independent databases.  ...  To address this situation, in this paper we de ne a formal model for multidatabases, which we call Multiplex.  ...  Acknowledgment: The author is grateful to Philipp Anokhin who developed the prototype described in Section 5, and to Igor Rakov, who implemented an earlier version of the system.  ...
